Susanna Reid replaced on GMB again as she continues to struggle after the NTAs
Susanna Reid has apologised to her followers as she revealed that she would not be presenting Good Morning Britain again on Monday as she continues to recover from an illness.
She shared the message on social media, posting a video clip on her Instagram Stories on Sunday night that showed her in a T-shirt with glasses perched on her head.
‘Quick update on my voice, which as you can hear is not 100%. I feel absolutely fine but the specialist that I saw on Friday said not to risk it until it is better,’ the 52-year-old presenter shared.
‘Thank you to everyone at GMB for stepping in and to all of you for your brilliant tips – I’ve been steaming and also doing ginger and lemon and honey and turmeric tea and drinking tons and tons of water.’
‘I will see you soon,’ she added.
Across the clip she wrote: ‘Sorry I won’t be with you in the morning. Vocal chords [sic] affected by mild infection (not C), that I didn’t even realise I had!
She had been due to appear on This Morning to discuss her new haircut but had to pull out for the same reason.
Susanna explained that she had attended the NTAs on Tuesday evening but said her croaky voice was a mystery as she was the first person to leave and doesn’t drink or smoke.
As Charlotte Hawkins, 48, introduced her ‘unscheduled’ appearance on the show, filling in for Susanna, the show’s presenters spoke to her briefly from her dressing room.
‘It’s funny because it was the NTAs last night and when I got in my cab to leave the driver said, “You’re the very first person to leave the NTAs. You’re obviously not partying,”’ she recalled.
‘And of course, I don’t drink, I don’t smoke. So there’s absolutely no reason I can understand. But I’ve completely lost my voice.’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV1.
