Paedophile weatherman Fred Talbot sits drinking in a pub nearly a year after he was released from jail.
The disgraced star, 70, ordered several pints and tried to chat with other customers.
Talbot was pictured in Little Bollington, Cheshire, just a mile from the school where he abused his victims.
One punter told us: “He really has a nerve even showing his face around here. He should still be behind bars.”
Talbot served just half his sentence for sexual offences, mostly against boys at a school where he previously taught.
The presenter – famous for leaping around on a large floating map on This Morning – got five years in 2015 for indecent assaults.

He targeted two pupils while he was a biology teacher at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys.
In June 2017 he got a further four years for abusing seven boys on school camping trips between 1978 and 1981 in Scotland.
And in November that year he was given another eight months for a 1980 indecent assault on a male aged over 16 in an incident unconnected to the school.
The former family favourite appeared a sad, dishevelled figure during his pub outing. An onlooker said: “He looked a shadow of his former self. He was very thin, but his face is still unmistakable.

“He was drinking pints and trying to chat to a couple of people but they didn’t want to know. He was one of Britain’s most famous stars, but his career has ended in shame and now he just spends his time sitting in the pub.”
Talbot was freed in December last year. At the time one victim, who was 14 when he was plied with alcohol and molested, said he was “angry he didn’t serve more time”.
Talbot’s first conviction came after evidence from Stone Roses singer Ian Brown, one of his former pupils but not a victim.
Mr Brown, 57, said Talbot set his class masturbation homework and described the former teacher as a “wrong’un”.
