Good Morning Britain fans 'confused' by presenter shake up – but now they love it, says Laura Tobin | The Sun

GOOD Morning Britain's presenting line-up is as unpredictable as the British weather since Piers Morgan left two years ago.

But one breakfast star who viewers love to see steadying the ship is TV meteorologist Laura Tobin.

She's the bright-eyed weather girl who gives as good as she gets bantering with a host of anchors every day.

From GMB's Susanna Reid, to legendary presenter Richard Madeley – who is compared to Alan Partridge every time he's on air – and then there's lovable Ben Shephard.

Of testing a rosta of presenters to fill Piers' boots, Laura tells us: "That’s the thing.

"I think at first some people were confused saying, 'why is it not just one set person?'

"But actually, everyone loves each of the different presenters for different reasons.

"So, like people love Richard Madeley, because he is just like Alan Partridge, and he’s just hilarious.

"He’s like that behind the scenes, I love him to pieces.

"He will ask me a million questions, as soon as the weather forecast is finished and we go to (the break), he's like, 'you know you said that thing about space…' He's super interested. He actually sits and stares and listens."

She goes on: "And then when we come to the end of the week and we have Ben, it’s like, everyone loves Ben.

"He's been on it for such a long time. And then he’s with Kate (Garraway), and she looks like she's still got rollers in her hair, but she's just got big hair. And he just teases her the whole time."

Finance expert Martin Lewis also recently joined as a main host on Wallet Wednesdays.

It’s not only viewers who are benefiting from his advice on money matters.

Laura says: "Martin, I just love him, and we always message each other about weird funny geeky things, any science questions.

"For me, I’m captivated by everything he says, and the audience are. So he is just going to be an amazing addition.”

Asked if he ever switches off, Laura says: “Everyone is always like, ‘Martin, can I ask your advice, I’ve just got a quick question?’ And everyone asks me about the weather.”

Unlike her GMB co-star Alex Beresford, who on occasion has swapped weather reports for the anchor's chair, Laura isn't in any rush to make the leap to show host.

But confirming she never, ever, wants to leave, the mum-of-one adds: "I love it, I love absolutely love it. Reading the weather is the best job in the world.

"I love talking about it, and I get to do it every morning."
