Main host Susanna began by breaking the news online streaming service Netflix were on the lookout for a young actor to play the Duchess of Cambridge in the hit series.

A casting call has been published stating The Crown is seeking "an exceptional young actor to play Kate Middleton".

The advert goes on to say: "This is a good role in this award-winning drama and we are looking for a strong physical resemblance.”

Susanna suggested GMB may have their own Duchess of Cambridge lookalike in the studio, hinting their very own Laura should be linked with the role.

Flattered by the comparison, Laura informed Netflix she "was available".

She then went onto say she already had a daughter called Charlotte so all she needed now was a husband called William.

But when Susanna said her current partner possibly wouldn't be happy with that, Laura replied: "He won't mind, he'll let me go with anyone."
