Laura, 38, is best known to Good Morning Britain viewers for presenting the weather forecast on a daily basis and she has been one of the presenter’s making frequent appearances on the show during the lockdown. Although she presented from home, the meteorologist was still on hand to inform viewers of the conditions outside and on Monday, she made her return to the studio. Viewers of the ITV news show were delighted to see her back at the helm, but during Friday’s programme, she announced she will be disappearing from screens once more.

During her final show, Laura did have some good news for viewers as she revealed the sun and high temperatures were making their return to the forecast.

“We’ve been waiting for the heat to build. First, we were hoping it would last well into the weekend but that’s not the case for all of us.

“A weather front in the north moves its way southwards through today, into tomorrow into the weekend, pushing away the warmth bringing with it fresher conditions.

“But there’s a hint into next week that high pressure near to the south-west will build back in and the outlook for next week is actually looking pretty good.”

The weather presenter continued as she revealed her break from the show: “Which I’m excited about because I’m on leave – yippee!”

The weather presenter then moved onto the forecast for Friday as she told viewers: “It is definitely a story of plenty of warmth in the south, turning cloudier with rain in the north.

“So the satellite and radar picks up this weather front, it’s a cold front, behind it it will bring those fresher conditions.

“Scotland and Northern Ireland that bit cloudier with outbreaks of rain as we head through the day, even in England and Wales, there’s some mist and fog across the south-west.

“It will lift and break to reveal beautiful sunshine, more sunshine turning up quicker than it did yesterday through England and Wales.”

I’m on leave – yippee!

Discussing the temperatures, Laura went on to say London could see highs of 29 degrees on Friday with the south-east possibly hitting 30 degrees.

The presenter continued: “Still, despite the fresh air moving across Scotland, 21 [degrees] here,” before talking about the conditions overnight.

“Watch that weather front. It moves itself southwards, clearing the north of Scotland, moving into north England and north Wales – milder and humid in the south tonight but cooler and fresher in the north.”

As for Saturday’s forecast, the meteorologist explained there will be a drop in temperatures but there will be plenty of sunshine in the south-east.

Unfortunately, the north of the country will be cloudier and wetter but Laura added throughout the day the weather will become “brighter and breezier”.

Taking to social media in light of the announcement the weather presenter won’t be on screen next week, one viewer wrote on Twitter: “Laura’s on hols next week #lauratobin #gmb,” followed by a crying face emoji.

“The lovely Laura never fails to cheer me up come rain or shine. Always happy and bubbly. Best one on gmb,” another added.

The forecaster isn’t the only star of the show featuring for the last time on Friday as Dr Hilary Jones, 67, will also be enjoying an extended hiatus.

Announcing the news on Thursday, the GP said: “I’ve got to have a little break,” as Adil Ray, 46, remarked: “Where would we be without Dr Hilary? He’s told me he’s off next week. You can’t leave next week.”

Charlotte Hawkins, 45, added: “What? I don’t know who allowed that to happen. It’s very well deserved.”
