and live on Freeview channel 276
The 135m-challenge was selected for Sally Williams in June at the premiere of the latest in the franchise.
The assignment began when Sally Williams asked Tom Cruise to choose between the London Eye stunt or a challenge to present the weather whilst speeding down the Thames in a speedboat, during a red carpet interview at the London Premiere for Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One.
She said: "Standing on top of the London Eye was an incredible experience that I'll cherish forever. It was an honour to bring the weather to Londoners from such an iconic location. I’m happy to be able to tell Tom: Mission accomplished."
Imran Tauqir, general manager of the lastminute.com London Eye, said: "Hats off to Sally, presenting from 443ft above the London skyline is no mean feat.
“We are thrilled to have played a part in making this remarkable first of its kind broadcast happen – but when Tom Cruise himself asks, you just have to deliver."
The London Eye Weather report with Sally Williams will be on ITV London News at 6pm this evening.
