Good Morning Britain's Laura Tobin had a messy surprise live on air this morning.

She was presenting from Bocketts Farm with a new-born chick on her hand talking about the weather and "Easter fun" at the farm, when the chick decided to do its business: "It just pooed on me!"

Maybe it was a dirty protest with the chick not impressed at being named after her...

"Well, that was a fine start to the morning," joked the official GMB Twitter account, with Laura sharing a couple of photos of the cheeky chick.

"Here's naughty chick 'Laura' @BockettsFarm I just named her but she poo'd on me in protest! #NeverWorkWithAnimals," she wrote, before later sharing a video of some billy goats misbehaving as well.

It's not the first Bocketts Farm-based hiccup that has hit Good Morning Britain this week after Andi Peters's live link was hit by technical difficulties on Monday (April 10).

The presenter dashed to the studio when his intended broadcast didn't go to plan. He explained: "Well, this morning I was live at 5 o'clock on a farm. It was all going so well until the technical equipment all failed. So I got in the car, and hopped over here."

This week's Good Morning Britain is being hosted by Eamonn Holmes and his former GMTV co-star Kate Garraway as they filled in for Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

His appearances have led to viewers asking for Eamonn to be given the job full-time. Sorry Piers.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
