GOOD Morning Britain star Laura Tobin was playfully mocked by her co-stars today after suffering a fashion fail.
The meteorologist, 40, needed to wrap up in the cold as she presented from Hever Castle in Kent.

Sir David Jason as Del Boy in his iconic coat
But Charlotte Hawkins, sitting in the warm London studio, couldn’t help but notice she looked like Only Fools and Horses’ Del Boy, famously played by Sir David Jason.
She said: “There’s been a lot of comment this morning about your new coat. Are the rumours true that you borrowed it from Del Boy?”
The iconic 80s sitcom’s theme tune then played out as both women giggled.
Laura said: “No I had a choice of two jackets to wear this morning and the crew said to pick this one, and all I’ve had all morning is the gallery playing this to me. If you don’t like it I can change?”
Charlotte replied: “Oh no, it looks lovely Laura.”
Beloved cockney wheeler dealer Del Boy was often seen in his trademark sheepskin coat as he got up to mischief in and around Peckham.
His famous look was usually completed by a flat cap and personalised gold chain.
Last week viewers were open-mouthed after Laura celebrated a milestone birthday – with followers unable to believe her age.
The star shared a sneak peek into her intimate 40th birthday party on social media, with her GMB colleagues also sending their well-wishes.
Posting on Instagram, the TV meteorologist posed in front of a giant light-up 40, also holding up balloons in one snap alongside her twin brother.
Laura easily passed for 10 years younger as she dazzled in a slinky black mini dress with a ruffle hem and off-the-shoulder sleeves, her curled brown hair tied into a high ponytail.
She captioned the post: “This is 40! An actual party- My first one since before the pandemic and it was mine!
“I had soooo much fun, friends, fizz and food-Plus lots of dancing-it was great to dance again!”
But her followers were more distracted by her surprising age, with one commenting: “40, but look 30 at the most!”
Another gasped: “Looks like 30!!!”
One more agreed: “Gorgeous lady, 40! More like 21!”
A fourth echoed: “Happy 40th Birthday. You look stunning and nowhere near 40 at all.”
Kate Garraway also referenced Laura’s age-defying looks as she paid sweet tribute on social media, sharing a snap of Laura in the GMB studios posing with a birthday cake.
She wrote: “#happybirthday to the utterly marvellous meteorologist & mate @lauratobinweather – who I suspect has a very sore head today on her actual 40th birthday today after her party last night!!
“Sorry couldn’t be there to celebrate with you but take comfort in your ‘gentle’ state today that NO ONE can believe you are 40 !!!! Happy birthday too to your twin mark – sending lots of [love].”
Laura joined Daybreak as the weather presenter in 2012, and stayed on when the ITV breakfast show was replaced with Good Morning Britain in 2014.
She married husband Dean Brown in August 2010, and the pair share four-year-old daughter Charlotte.
