GMB’s Laura Tobin forced to change after on-air wardrobe calamity

Viewers were finding it hard to look at what Laura was wearing

Weather presenter Laura Tobin was forced to change up her look on Good Morning Britain earlier today after her original outfit proved to be not so easy on the eye.

The 36-year-old, returning to the show after maternity leave, had to swap a stripy top she was seen wearing at the start of the show for a navy dress because the design caused a strobing effect for some viewers.

She later tweeted an apology to her 80,000+ followers for the distracting piece of clothing and joked viewers did not need to adjust their TV settings.

Laura also admitted she was a bundle of nerves on her first day back at work – but told her fellow GMB presenters she wanted to say farewell as the show prepares to move home from the London Studios.

Explaining the timing of her return, Laura said daughter Charlotte’s premature birth last year had changed all of her plans.

She told Kate Garraway, Ranvir Singh and Sean Fletcher: “I really wanted to come back to this studio because my last day here wasn’t meant to be my last day here thanks to Charlotte’s early arrival.

“So I just wanted to say goodbye to the building and hello to everyone.”

Laura also provided an update on Charlotte, who made her TV debut with a visit to GMB in February.

“She’s so good, she’s put on so much weight she’s so big and fat now,” Laura gushed.

“She looks so much like my husband and nothing like me.”

Forecaster Laura also noted how different life can be as a working mum.

“I’ve just sat [backstage] in make-up expressing [milk] and will do it in the taxi on the way home too,” she said.

She continued: “It’s the first time I’ve had make-up on in such a long time.

“I’ve probably put makeup on five times at home and I don’t brush my hair or even shower.”

Fans were delighted to see Laura back on GMB – and the star thanked many supporters on Twitter for their well wishes.

Good Morning Britain is on ITV, weekdays from 6am.
