Midlands Today
The new set for Lorraine isn't why GMB Today is happening. They're putting GMB Today on air to try something new as they have confidence in the show. Lorraine's set is built outside TLS so it's not off air because she's getting a new set.

I think Lorraine has had some nice looks/ sets over the years. The worst was probably when GMTV became one in 2009. The current logo is a bit poor.

When Daybreak and Lorraine both shared the same studio, how did loose women work in there? We're both sets removed or just the Lorraine half?

Pretty much the GMB graphics but with "Today" in a gradient circle which unlike the GMB logo isn't animated. Clock colour is inverted to normal and no flipper. The menu graphics is also the same but has the GMB Today logo at the left.

The main area seems to be the blue corner of the studio where Kate and JK sit on stools behind the tall desk used for the Oscars special. Interviews coming from the performance area with a new coffee table and tub chairs.

No theme tune as such so far. They're using that "feels" song that's in the charts at the minute.

EDIT - Buzz bed used at the break with the normal translucent break bumper but with a local landmark in the background which worked nicely.

No new music, just the pop song 'Feels' over a sting. Started in the interview area with the small desk.

The onscreen graphics don't look great in my opinion. The circular logo clashes badly with the rectangular clock shape. Is it called Today like it says on screen or GMB Today like it says everybody else?

Interesting that they dropped the Checkatrade sponsor ad before the weather at 9.20 and their logo from the weather summary slate.

I don't really know what I think of this. I feel it might be a bit better without JK and Richard M would be better so I'll reserve judgement until the end of the week.
