GOOD Morning Britain went off the rails this morning when Charlotte Hawkins’ microphone stopped working – forcing weather woman Laura Tobin to take over.
The 45-year-old had been presenting the first half an hour of GMB when viewers were suddenly left unable to hear her report on how the impact of the pandemic has been worse for women.

And things only went from bad to worse when Charlotte’s muffled microphone failed to pick up her report on the heavy snow gripping the UK.
Coming to her colleague’s aid, Laura spoke over the noise and began interviewing reporters Juliet Dunlop and Nick Dixon who were based around the UK about the cold front.
Following the technical blunder, Charlotte apologised to viewers and thanked Laura for “stepping in”.
The presenter said: “Well, apologies, I’ve had sound issues with my microphone this morning.

“I’ve swapped it now. Thanks for stepping in there, Laura!”
The technical blunder didn’t seem to slow Charlotte down as she hilariously performed a TikTok dance later in the show, which left Piers Morgan joking that her dancing has “improved” since her 2017 Strictly Come Dancing stint.

Piers teased Charlotte over her moves
Playing the original video, Piers began: “I don’t think any video has ever excited the team more then that here – or made something in me slightly die.
“We got very excited by that,” Susanna added. “Congratulations to Katie Wong, Amy Lester and Thao Therese Nguyen, they originally did the BBC…”
It was at that moment that Charlotte broke into dance and playfully twerked to the show’s opening music much to her colleagues’ delight.
Although Piers, 56, quipped that he understood why she was voted off Strictly Come Dancing in 2017.
Piers chimed in: “Oh my God, the things people will do to get a bit more air time.
“It’s baffling why Brendan Cole got kicked off Strictly for that. Just reminding the nation again why they voted you straight off.”
