Laura  Tobin freaks out on GMB

As she tried to present today’s weather forecast, the host froze on screen as her eyes widened.

“Sorry, there’s one getting really really close,” she said. “It’s nipping at everything!

“I’m sorry, I know you want to hear about the weather – I’m just going to stay as still as I can. I’m sorry.”

“Laura, where are you parked, can you make a run for it if you need to?” Ranvir laughed.

Adil added: “They are boxing you in – they are definitely planning something!”

Laura then awkwardly tried to take a selfie but as more cows began walking towards her, she started to panic.

“There are cows everywhere,” she added.  “You know what they say, ever work with children or animals.

“Obviously, the cows are really inquisitive and they’re wondering what we’re doing – but one came really close and looked at me.

“It was really big! The crew were like stay still, don’t look at it.

“And now they’re all looking at me wondering what we’re doing and why we’re spoiling their morning.

“But they are absolutely gorgeous.”

Laura Tobin’s weather warning

When Laura was finally able to present the weekend’s weather, she warned of record-breaking temperatures.

“There’s a Met Office alert saying the very old, the very young people and vulnerable people, could be at risk with this hot spell of weather, so stay in doors, close the curtains, open the windows and stay hydrated,” she added.

“For me, it’s just really concerning to talk about these record temperatures.

“It’s 37 degrees todays which will make it the fifth hottest day that the UK has ever recorded.

“This will be the first time we have ever seen 37 degrees twice in one year.

“Please be responsible, enjoy the sunshine but stay safe!”
