Good Morning Britain star Susanna Reid has revealed her sons don’t watch her on the ITV daytime show – but sometimes see videos of her on TikTok instead – and the idea of men fancying their mum ‘goes over their heads’
Susanna Reid has revealed her sons don’t watch her on Good Morning Britain – and she says the idea of men fancying her would “go over their heads”.
The presenter, 51, is stepping back from the show a little bit more this year as she is set to focus on spending more time with Sam, Finn and Jack, who are taking their GCSEs.
Speaking about being on the telly and loving her job, Susanna explained to The Sun : “[Men fancying me] that would go over their heads and certainly would not be a conversation that I would initiate with them!
“It would be really weird. I think they love it that I can dress up and look nice and be on telly. They don’t watch me.
“Sometimes clips of the programme are on TikTok and there’s a little bit of a, ‘Wow, OK, Mum’s on TikTok,’ but it’s not a big deal.”

Susanna recently made the headlines as she jokingly mocked the Good Morning Britain presenting switch-up during an appearance on Lorraine.
The ITV presenter has fronted the breakfast show with many different male co-presenters for the past few months after Piers Morgan stepped down from the show following an on-air row with Alex Beresford over Meghan Markle.
Since then, a number of men have rotated the presenting position alongside Susanna including Richard Madeley, Adil Ray, Ben Shephard, Rob Rinder, Ed Balls, Bill Turnbull and Alistair Campbell.
And discussing ITV’s tribute to International Women’s Day with a group photo of all the female Daytime TV stars, Lorraine quizzed Susanna on what she thought of the switch-up.
“Now when you are presenting right now, it’s a little bit like speed dating. There has been a fair few fellas,” Lorraine asked, as Susanna joked back: “TV Tinder!”
“It is TV Tinder! There’s been quite a few,” Lorraine then replied.
Susanna went on to list some of her fellow co-hosts, as clips of them presenting together were shown on screen.
“There’s my good friend Rob Rinder, I’m normally out in Ibiza with him. There’s Ed Balls, who we know of course. Alistair Campbell aswell,” she said, “Richard Madeley, Adil Ray, Bill Turnbull, Richard Bacon, Martin Lewis. Where does it stop?”
Lorraine then added: “It must be quite difficult – because you’ve got to have a good rapport with someone.
“You and Bill, brilliant; you and Rob Rinder, you know each other really well. You can really tell. But obviously you’ve been getting to know these guys really well over the years.”
To which Susanna replied, “Yes, and as the late great Bruce Forsyth would say, they’re all my favourites.”
