Fred Talbot had denied 10 counts of indecent assault against schoolboys
Ex-TV weatherman Fred Talbot has been found guilty of indecently assaulting two teenage boys when he was a teacher.
The 65-year-old was cleared of eight other indecent assault charges by a jury at Manchester Minshull Street Crown Court.
He was accused of abusing four former pupils at Altrincham Grammar School in Greater Manchester and a fifth schoolboy from the Newcastle area.
Talbot was remanded in custody for sentencing on 13 March.
Judge Timothy Mort told Talbot, from Bowdon in Greater Manchester, his sentence should start immediately bearing in mind his "abuse of trust".
The former ITV star displayed no obvious reaction while the verdicts were read and nodded at the judge as he was taken down to the cells.
He had denied abusing boys aged 14 to 17, but was found guilty of two counts relating to former pupils at Altrincham grammar.
Talbot worked as their biology teacher at the boys school until 1984.
The jury was told he was said to have been "obsessed" with teenage boys throughout his teaching career and "could not help himself" around them when under the influence of drink.
Talbot is best known for presenting the weather forecast on a floating map in Liverpool's Albert Dock for ITV's This Morning programme.
