Greta Thunberg as a weather forecaster. "HOT!!!!!!!!!"

Greta Thunberg is a 18-year-old Swedish environmental activist with Asperger's Syndrome. In the 2020 revival of Spitting Image, her character sparked controversy due to her age and the fact that she was autistic, with some describing her character as "ableist".

In the first episode, she was portrayed as a weathergirl. And in later episodes, she often appeared in skits along with the fictional side character, Lee; who contrary to Greta Thunberg is apathetic about going to climate strikes.
