GOOD Morning Britain star Laura Tobin suffered an awkward blunder – just a day after Susanna Reid stormed off the set over a string of errors.
The Sun exclusively revealed that main host Susanna, 52, berated staff this week over a number of mistakes appearing on the screen that "made them look stupid".
Ben Shepard and Kate Garraway took over lead presenter duties on Friday and were left hanging on air when they handed over to the weather and Laura, who was presenting on location from Kew Gardens, was nowhere to be seen.
Ben filled the airtime by teasing his absent colleague.
He said: "She’s got one job, Laura. Was she stuck in the undergrowth?”
Kate replied: “I don’t know, she’s been rummaging around. She does love Kew.

"She’s gone off for a forage. We’ll see if we can track her down.”
But moments later they were forced to cut the weather entirely, as Ben called out to the studio staff and said: “Has anybody found her? Is she there?”
Finally a producer said something in his ear and he added: “Ok, so we’re going to go to Richard for the weather.”
The ITV breakfast show has aired a number of errors this week with Susanna also fuming when she realised the date shown on screen was wrong.

And she lost patience again when the name of news correspondent Ben Chapman was misspelt as he reported from the war in Ukraine.
A source said: “She made her feelings very clear, angrily shouting that the mistakes made her and the whole show look stupid — as she stormed off camera and confronted production staff.”
Producers have been trying to rebuild the team since Susanna’s co-host Piers Morgan, 57, left the show in March 2021.
It has left her feeling more responsibility for the show’s content, according to insiders.
On-screen graphics are usually prepared the night before the show goes out and supposedly checked before making it to air.
Susanna’s outbursts over the errors have prompted several emails from bosses to staff.
The insider added: “Susanna is totally professional and just wants high standards — as Piers or any other presenter would have done.
“The last thing anyone wants is her walking away in anger.”
