Viewers of Good Morning Britain were unimpressed during the sixth season of the ITV morning show when presenter Laura Tobin attempted to pull off an April Fools’ Day joke.
With hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway directing the ITV studio, weather presenter Laura aired segments of the show from a greenhouse.
The 40-year-old meteorologist was shown a “unique tree” by greenhouse worker Matt, who told her the new tree was the first of its kind, as he talked about his hopes for the tree to be sold. general public.
Laura asked: “So can people buy this plant in a few years?” Matt replied: “They will buy this plant in a few years when we have bred from this plant. Take a closer look as the undersides of these petals are completely…”
Laura’s blue-fingered host even promised they’d name it after Laura herself, but when he gave the plant to her halfway, she dropped it on the floor.
Both Matt and Laura screamed at the obvious mistake, before the guest Matt escorted and charged.
Laura said, “Matt, can we save this? Oh my gosh, he just left. Is there really only one of these? ” as she tried to scrape the remains of the tree off the floor.
While co-hosts Ben and Kate tried to join the joke on set, ITV audiences at home smelled rats and were less impressed with the dupe.
Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “Poor April Fool’s Day there GMB”, another added: “Worst April Fools’ Day for sure people won’t be without an Oscar this is here.”
A third wrote: “Pathetic April Fools effort over there,” as another said: “It was the most deserving April trick.”
“Oh my, the dangers of April Fools’ Day with Laura are always overblown and obvious. So sad! “, another social media user posted.
In another turn of the show, Kate was left frustrated when her Good Morning Britain co-stars pulled an April Fools’ joke at her.
In the entertainment segment with Vick Hope, the panel was busy discussing last night’s London premiere of The Lost City, starring Channing Tatum and others.
Discussions on Good Morning Britain quickly turned to a specific scene with Magic Mike star Channing Tatum and Magic Mike, his film about male strippers.
Then Vick teased that an unexpected guest entered the set – none other than Channing Tatum.
Kate was shocked and she quickly sorted her hair and got ready to welcome Channing to the show – but it all turned out to be a complicated joke by the team, leaving Kate’s heart racing.
Good Morning Britain airs at 6am on weekdays on ITV.
