Stun­ning Su­sanna: Se­crets of the star’s hot new body

Good Morn­ing Bri­tain pre­sen­ter Su­sanna Reid re­veals weight-loss se­crets

Best - - CONTENTS - WORDS: JOEL COOPER

She looked bet­ter than ever when she re­turned to Good Morn­ing Bri­tain af­ter a late sum­mer break, and now Su­sanna Reid has opened up to best about her in­cred­i­ble weight loss.

The TV pre­sen­ter re­vealed that the light­bulb mo­ment came when her doctor had sug­gested she lose some weight in or­der to achieve a health­ier body mass in­dex (BMI) – the scale used to cal­cu­late a per­son’s ideal weight based on their height.

‘It was a com­bi­na­tion of fac­tors, but a doctor said I was at the top end of my BMI,’ she ad­mit­ted, when quizzed about her de­ci­sion to shift a few ex­cess pounds. ‘He said it might ben­e­fit me if I lost a lit­tle weight.’

The newly svelte star, who has shed a stone af­ter ditch­ing the booze, told best that she de­cided to give up al­co­hol for one month in a bid to tone up – and it’s even helped her feel more alert when bick­er­ing with co-host Piers Mor­gan!

‘Giv­ing up drink­ing has given me loads more en­ergy, and I feel kind of fresher,’ she told us. ‘I’ve been able to deal with Piers much bet­ter! I just de­cided that it might be good for me.’

Su­sanna, 47, showed off the fruits of her labour at the re­cent Na­tional Re­al­ity TV Awards, where she picked up an im­pres­sive three gongs – beat­ing Piers, 53, to win the cov­eted Best TV Pre­sen­ter award.

‘I’m go­ing to cel­e­brate by hav­ing one more fizzy wa­ter, then get­ting a car home, get­ting into bed and sleep­ing un­til the alarm goes off at 4 o’clock in the morn­ing,’ the dis­tinctly sober star told us on the red car­pet af­ter ac­cept­ing her awards. ‘It’s just non-stop glam­our in my world!’ she added with a laugh.

Su­sanna, who said she doesn’t typ­i­cally drink al­co­hol dur­ing the week, also re­vealed that she was keen to see changes in her fig­ure. ‘I did think that I wanted to tone up a bit, as well as giv­ing up the al­co­hol,’ she con­tin­ued. ‘In my job, you’re con­stantly fight­ing tired­ness.

‘ You’re get­ting up so early, and you’re never quite get­ting enough sleep the night be­fore. Ob­vi­ously, I’m go­ing into bat­tle – it feels like – every morn­ing. So I thought that maybe los­ing a cou­ple of pounds and drop­ping the drink might help, and it has.’

Too right. You’re look­ing great, Su­sanna!
