GOOD Morning Britain’s Laura Tobin raped Charlotte Hawkins in an awkward live TV moment.
Charlotte, 46, was furious and threatened to sue “pull the plug”Laura later insists on it “we love each other really”.
The otherwise bubbly meteorologist made the error when Charlotte, host of the studio, handed it over to her.
Laura was on location presenting the weather and stood in front of a West London shopping centre when Charlotte asked her why she hadn’t started Christmas shopping.
She said: “You know, I’ve spoken to so many people who have already done their Christmas shopping, and I haven’t done any yet, I refuse to! But I’m close enough here.”
Charlotte was shocked by her confession and asked her: “Bring me back something nice!”
Laura replied, “OK I shall. I shall work on something to improve your face.”
Her co-star let out an enormous gasp and then snapped, shaking her head. “You’re in so much trouble!”
Charlotte vanished from the screen, and viewers watched Laura’s astonishment as she realized her error. “What is she going to do to me?”
The TV meteorologist posted a photo on Instagram showing her brother and sister holding balloons while standing in front of a huge light-up 40.
Laura shocked viewers when she revealed her real identity.
Viewers thought she looked 10 years younger because she looked stunning in a black mini-dress on her special day.
A post she shared on Instagram was captioned “This is 40!” A party! This was my first since the pandemic.
“I had soooo much fun, friends, fizz and food-Plus lots of dancing-it was great to dance again!”
Her surprising age distracted her more than her followers, with one commenting: “40, but look 30 at the most! 🔥🔥”
Another chance: “Looks like 30!!!!😮😮😮❤️👍🏻😀👌🏻🙏🏻”
Laura joined Daybreak 2012 as a weather reporter and remained on the show when Good Morning Britain replaced it in 2014.
Dean Brown was her husband, and she wed Charlotte in August 2010.
