Charlotte Hawkins teased by GMB co-stars over Buddy the Elf green collar dress

Charlotte Hawkins caused "Buddy the Elf gate" on Friday's Good Morning Britain with her choice of clothing.

The presenter, 47, looked effortlessly chic in a green polkadot dress with a white collar on it that was also adorned with silver buttons.

However, co-hosts Kate Garraway and Ed Balls were quick to comment on the dress, revealing that it had caused "Buddy the Elf gate" in the studio.

Addressing viewers, Ed, 55, said: "We're in the middle of Buddy the Elf gate gate" with Kate adding: "Oh we are a little bit actually, have a look at Charlotte!"

She continued: "Some people on Twitter have been saying it looks a little bit like Buddy the Elf" as the camera panned onto Charlotte.

To which an unimpressed Charlotte quipped: "Here we are, it's a dress… with collars… here to remind you all of Christmas!"

The ITV show then pulled up a photo of Charlotte in her dress next to Buddy the Elf as she asked: "What do we think?"

With Kate exclaiming: "No, not at all! I think I'm just bitter because I love that dress!"

Charlotte also responded to a viewer who tweeted: "@CharlotteHawkns dress reminds me of elf!!"

To which she replied: "Don’t know what you mean…" with a laughing emoji and picture of Buddy the Elf, played by Will Ferrell.

It comes as Kate, who appeared on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2019, has addressed whether she will be joining the line up for a new all-star version set to air in 2023.

Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly have confirmed a special edition of the hit reality series will be shown next year and feature some favourite cast members from previous years.

Part of the GMB team today, Charlotte said: "How exciting. Kate, anything to declare on this one? Maybe making an appearance?"

Sitting alongside co-host Ed, Kate, 55, said: "Do you think anybody could go through that again?", she added: "No I don't think anybody wants to see me back there again."

Ed, 55, chimed in: "The nation wants Kate to do it."

Later in the show, Charlotte, 47, teased: "A little break in South Africa, Kate?"

"Absolutely I've never been to South Africa," Kate replied before Ed added: "Just quit while you're ahead."
