Laura said she will be having her own "little ray of sunshine" in October.

Wearing a floral print dress, she said, "As we head into September things will be blooming but it won't just be my dress, because I'm very pleased to let everybody know that, come the end of October, I'll be having my own little ray of sunshine. I am having a baby."

Tobin, who has been married to husband Dean Brown for seven years, added, "And I would like to say that nobody knows - none of my family, my aunties, uncles, cousins, no one in the Met Office.

"My parents, my husband's parents and our editor Neil [know]."

The panel expressed their delight with Morgan adding, "I can forecast endless sleepless nights but lots of joy."

Tobin later posted pictures on Twitter of her pointing to her baby bump. She wrote: "Happy to say the long range forecast is blooming & that's not just the weather. I forecast a ray of sunshine by the end of October #Baby."

It will be her first child.
