GMB presenter Ben Shephard takes aim at Laura Tobin after she storms off show
Good Morning Britain turned frosty as presenter Ben Shephard took aim at weathergirl Laura Tobin - just days after she stormed off set.Ben and his co-host Kate Garraway were discussing the collective noun for a weather presenter as Laura joins 29 of her other meteorologists for a conference.Laura is currently in Innsbruck, Austria, for the International Weather Summit, surrounded by cloud and determined to "yodel them away", Kate joked.Kate began by saying: "We were trying to work out the collective noun, weren't we, for weather presenters. I said cloud, you said storm..."But it wasn't all fun and games, as Ben told viewers: "Our producer today suggested depression, a depression of weather presenters" as Kate giggled beside him.Charlotte Hawkins suggested a "sunshine" of weather presenters to lighten the mood, while other fan suggestions included a "confusion", "shower" and "mizzle".Confusion certainly seemed to irk Laura, as Kate said: "Oh that's made her cross, she doesn't like that!"It came at a rather tense time, as just days before Richard Madeley told Laura she 'isn't needed anymore', after a discussion about red skies on the programme.Richard's brazen comment came after he asked: "I have to say there was an amazing sunrise driving in this morning, it was a really, really bright, bright, bright red.“Is that old saying sunrise in morning, shepherd’s warning true?” he asked.Laura explained: “Red sky in the morning, shepherd’s warning – it's actually true because the sun is rising in the south east and it basically is reflecting off the clouds that are coming in.

Good Morning Britain meteorologist Laura Tobin, 40, thanked Piers Morgan for always giving her “the time of day” and including her in heated debates while he was presenting the ITV show.The most explosive row came when "climate change denier", Craig Kelly, appeared on the programme.The Australian MP was invited on the show to discuss the horrific bushfires in 2020.In a new interview with, Laura said: “Piers would always bring me into any chats, like a couple of years ago when there were the deadly wildfires in Australia, where I think a billion animals perished, we had an MP on who was trying to say it wasn’t climate change.“Then Piers brought me in and we had this massive argument.“Piers will always give me the time of day.”The incident in question saw Mr Kelly discuss the blaze with hosts Piers and Susanna Reid when the former asked whether Mr Kelly “accepted that the planet is heating up at a dangerous level”.While the MP accepted that the planet is heating up, he argued that “the main cause of the fires is the build-up of fuel on the ground and drought” but insisted there was “no trend” with the increase of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.Piers then interrupted Mr Kelly to bring in Laura, who he dubbed the show’s “weather expert”.Laura proceeded to explain that Australia had just had its “highest temperatures and driest year ever recorded” and the country had the “second highest carbon emission per person on earth”.The mother-of-one then fumed at Mr Kelly: “You are burying your head in the sand, this is a climate emergency.“You are not a climate sceptic, you are a climate denier!”Mr Kelly rebuked that Australia had the “highest uptake of renewable energy” in the world, to which Laura hit back: “No you

GMB’s Laura Tobin recalls leaning on Susanna Reid for support following Svalbard backlash
Good Morning Britain’s meteorologist Laura Tobin, 40, gave a poignant report about the effects of climate change when she flew to Svalbard, Norway, last year.The bulletin was shown live on GMB in September and Laura broke down in tears after witnessing how global warming had melted the glaciers and put polar bears in danger.In the segment, she explained that Svalbard is heating up more than anywhere else on Earth and that the ice melting will cause changes to the weather in the UK, including rising sea levels and more flooding.Laura’s voice started to break when she said her young daughter, Charlotte, five, had drawn her a picture of a polar bear.She sobbed: “If Charlotte comes here when she’s my age, there potentially won’t be polar bears.”Despite the tearful report, some viewers criticised Laura because the flight to Norway would have added emissions to the atmosphere and contributed to climate change.Speaking exclusively to, Laura revealed that she turned to Susanna for support during the tough time.She confessed: “Susanna is really supportive.“When I was in Svalbard, I phoned her and told her what we had seen, the people we had spoken to. We discussed the criticism I received and whether I should mention it [on the show].“We both agreed because we need to own what we are doing, where we are going and why.”While Laura accepts that the flight would have made a carbon footprint and emitted pollution into the atmosphere, she doesn't feel "guilty" because the benefits outweighed the negatives.She stated: "The amount of people that watched, who maybe wouldn’t have watched an Arctic documentary, was in the millions.

Good Morning Britain’s Laura Tobin has addressed some of the sexism she faces as a meteorologist on a daily basis.The 40-year-old scientist, who has recently launched her brand-new book Every Day Ways To Save The Planet, has opened up about the prejudice she faces as a weather reporter after nine and a half years working on the popular ITV morning show.From the age of 14, the ITV star knew that being able to determine the weather and climate was something she had a deep passion for.But one thing she didn’t foresee was the wave of stereotypes she would have to battle throughout her career.Fast-forward 26-years and the mum-of-one has gone on to become one of the most loved and well-respected broadcast meteorologists in the UK.Despite her impressive career over the years, the TV personality confessed that she is still fighting these prejudiced ideas of a ‘weather girl’ on a regular basis.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Star, Laura recalled on particular moment that she argued with a guest presenter on the show who continued to belittle her intelligence on screen.She recalled: “I remember a couple of years ago we had politician Craig Kelly, from Australia on the show, talking about the wild fires in Australia and saying that they had nothing to do with climate change.“He was just talking garbage and so Piers [Morgan] just looked at me and he was like, ‘Right, Laura’s got something to say’ and I corrected him on those things that he was saying.”But despite proving the politician wrong on air, the climate change sceptic went on to ignore her comments and assumed she didn’t understand what she was talking about.Laura went on: “Later on he went, ‘Oh no, an ignorant Polly weather girl had a go at me, what does she
