‘It’s my last day on the job’: Laura Tobin ‘threatens to quit’ after being accused of ‘microaggression’ during banter with GMB co-star Adil Ray

Laura Tobin and Adil Ray indulged in on-screen banter on Thursday’s Good Morning Britain before Laura threatened to quit the ITV show.

The back and forth began after it was revealed that Laura accidentally called her co-star “Aled”, her mistake being mocked by Adil throughout the show.

Adil was quick to bring up Laura’s mistake as the show went dark for a weather update, saying sarcastically, “Let’s check the weather now.” Err Lisa is at Castle Farm in Kent. It’s Lisa isn’t it? Oh Linda, sorry Linda!’

Adil’s co-host, Charlotte Hawkins, rolled her eyes and laughed before Laura said to Adil:

“I already texted you to say I’m sorry, didn’t I?” The problem didn’t end there, as she made the same mistake again, saying, “I’m texting Aled…” quickly realizing her mistake as Adil and Charlotte both gasped.

‘You did it again! Laura, you double the bet! Charlotte told him.

An embarrassed Laura quickly replied, “It’s just because I literally just texted Adil to say ‘I’m sorry’ and he replied ‘who is that? “”

‘Yes! Move forward, quickly! Adel replied

GMB main anchor Susanna Reid was absent from the show this week, with Ranvir Singh and Charlotte Hawkins both appearing.

And the change did not go unnoticed by fans, who worried about the fate of Susanna, 51, on Monday.

Taking to social media, viewers tweeted GMB asking where Susanna was, asking if she was okay and explaining “fans miss her”.

Awkward: A viewer insisted he detected tension in the banter, tweeting: #aled?  a bit of micro aggression from laura there #gmb.'

One of them asked, ‘Where’s Suzanne? It feels weird that neither Richard, 66, nor Ranvir, 44, explained where she is,” while another asked, “She is fine.”

The absence was left unexplained by the breakfast show as they apparently brushed it under the rug, with neither Ranvir nor Richard explaining where Susanna was.

This follows suggestions of a feud between Richard Madeley and Susanna from fans, as they suggested that might even be why Ranvir is stepping in.
