Laura Tobin’s outfit on GMB today

Meteorologist Laura stunned viewers – perhaps not for the right reasons – with her outfit choice today.

The 40-year-old wasn’t in the studio today. Instead, she delivered her weather forecast from the Cheltenham racecourse.

It’s the first day of the Cheltenham Festival today, and Laura was dressed for the occasion. She wore a plaid purple coat and purple hat today – and it didn’t take long for her GMB colleagues to poke fun at her for it.

“Laura, our director Stuart thinks you look very Mary Poppin-esque this morning in that outfit,” GMB co-host Richard Madeley told the 40-year-old.

“Well, I needed an umbrella earlier but thankfully not anymore,” Laura laughed. “You look as if you could elevate yourself,” Richard joked. “Great outfit.”

A side-by-side of Laura and Mary Poppins was then shown. “He’s not wrong,” Susanna Reid laughed as Laura tipped her hat at them.

How did viewers react?

Whilst Richard and Susanna seemed to like Laura’s outfit for the Cheltenham Festival, some viewers didn’t.

“Er, wtf is Laura Tobin wearing on GMB?” one viewer asked.

“Are you wearing that for a bet Laura?” another wrote.

“Why is Laura in fancy dress?” a third tweeted.

“WTF is Laura wearing? Is it mufti day?” another asked.

Some viewers did like Laura’s outfit though! “You looked absolutely Amazing,” one viewer tweeted to Laura.

“I’m in love with your coat, that’s gorgeous,” another said. “Very stylish Laura,” a third wrote.

According to some viewers today, Richard was guilty of interrupting people on the show again.

Plenty of viewers took to Twitter to complain about the 65-year-old’s annoying habit again today.

“@GMB Please ask Richard Madeley to not try to interrupt those he is interviewing, so rude,” another said.

“Can’t Richard stop bloody interrupting!!!!” a third grumbled.
