Susanna Reid has never quite seen eye to eye with her Good Morning Britain co-presenter Piers Morgan – but that doesn’t mean she’ll be leaving the show anytime soon.
Recently, the pair have clashed on controversial issues such as wolf-whistling, Donald Trump and Love Island. Reid even told Piers to “stop talking” on an episode last week.
But that doesn’t mean Susanna is planning to quit, and online critics won’t change her mind.
Taking to Twitter on Monday (July 16), she hit back at her attackers who have called for her to step down.
She said: “Half my critics think I should leave MY paid employment because THEY take issue with the person sitting next to me. The other half think I should leave, BECAUSE I take issue with the person sitting next to me. I’m staying right where I am.”
In an earlier tweet, she wrote: “Getting hit from left and right. Criticised for being too opinionated…and too quiet. Accused of being a snowflake and a c—.
“Too liberal … too enabling, good looking, but… My skin just gets thicker by the second. And we do it all again tomorrow @gmb 6am.”
Good Morning Britain has come under fire in recent weeks for Piers’ frequently controversial statements.
Perhaps the strongest response he got was during a debate about US president Donald Trump.
Branded an “idiot” and “incompetent” by political commentator and anti-Trump protestor Ash Sarkar, Piers grew more and more irate as the argument went on.
Eventually, Susanna had to step in and told him that if he felt so strongly, maybe he should “go out and march” himself.
In future, maybe he should listen to his co-presenter a little more…
Good Morning Britain airs on weekdays from 6am on ITV.
