Good Morning Britain weather presenter Laura Tobin showed viewers she was eating chicken nuggets for breakfast and spilled her drink on air for falling asleep after the show won a quiz charity news.
he ITV breakfast show team beat 30 competing news groups in a ‘fierce battle’ to be crowned Ultimate News Quiz winner having raised over £200,000 for Action for Children and Ukraine’s Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) on Thursday evening.
Good Morning Britain co-host Ben Shephard said: “Last night was a big night in the news world.
“Forget WWE and boxing to win the heavyweight world championship – newsrooms around the country love to compete in the Ultimate News Quiz.”
Sharing a picture of Tobin at the test, Shephard, 47, added: “And there’s Tobin, leading from the front, as we wanted.
“Laura loves to celebrate and she’s not usually the first to go to bed in these situations.
“She was the last to wake up this morning.”
Tobin overslept and was late to the show on Friday morning, holding the winner’s trophy.
Upon arrival, the 40-year-old meteorologist said: “The whole team went to the party after I went to bed. One thing I forgot to do was set the alarm to wake up.
“Sally, our deputy editor, thank you so much for calling me and waking me up. I’m not entirely sure what I said to her was polite. And here I am. ”
Shephard joked: “Should we let Laura go live? Has anyone solved this yet? “while co-host Kate Garraway, 54, quipped: ‘Is anyone breathing a sigh of relief for her? “
During the show, Tobin revealed that she had been eating chicken nuggets, which was in her bag from the night before and was drinking Coca-Cola, which she poured before presenting about the weather.
Among the competitors in the competition was defending champion Jeremy Vine, along with Loose Women, Netflix, Channel 4 News, BBC Radio, Sky News, ITV News, Times Radio and CNN.
The annual charity fundraiser, organized by Emily Maitlis and Jon Sopel, was held in London’s Grand Connaught Room following last year’s online version due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Famous faces who have attended include Nick Robinson, Alison Hammond and Richard Osman.
The event also features an auction, with proceeds going directly to the DEC’s appeal.
Lots include football jerseys signed by Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko and Everton’s Vitaliy Mykolenko, as well as a hand-painted figurine in the colors of the Ukrainian flag by artist Grayson Perry.
Speaking of the 18-inch (46cm) statue of Claire, her surrogate, which had raised £24,000, Perry said: “I painted a small figurine in Ukrainian colors.
“It was a self-portrait of myself originally made for my stage show, which I gave as an award to everyone, and this is a very special version of it.
“I’m very satisfied.”
