    French TV viewers got more than they bargained for after weather presenter Doria Tillier made good on her promise to forecast in the nude.

    The 27-year-old vowed to bare all if the French football team beat Ukraine to qualify for next year’s World Cup finals.

    Perhaps inspired by the ex-model's promise, Les Bleus duly overturned a two-goal first-leg deficit to win 3-0 at the Stade de France in Paris.

    Their passage to Brazil secured, all eyes turned to Tillier.

    Indeed, millions tuned in to Canal+ to see if she would hold up her end of the bargain.

    And hold it up she did, gamely stripping off for her segment of Le Grand Journal on France's Canal+ station.

    Admittedly, it wasn't full frontal nudity - it's a family show!

    Footage accompanying the weather map showed long-distance shots of the naked brunette running through fields.


    Tillie had promised to present "à poil" – stark naked - and she explained to a clearly disappointed studio audience that she had done just that - the field in which she gambolled so gamely lay just outside the village of Poil.
