Susanna Reid, 48, addressed speculation about her love life after her Good Morning Britain co-host Piers Morgan, 54, appeared to suggest she was involved in a new romance after splitting from Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish, 53. The presenter got involved in the cheeky exchange with the Piers Morgan’s Life Stories star last month when he spotted her “perky” face during an episode of the ITV show. Piers told Susanna at the time: “You are very perky. That’s the happy face you give me when you’ve had no sleep.” In response, the brunette Beauty quipped: “The reason I am laughing at that is because I literally went to bed at 7.30 last night.”
Unfortunately for Susanna, Piers persisted with his mischievous line of questioning, adding: “I’m not denying that at all.
"I don’t doubt the fact that you spent hours in bed is up for question. It’s what you were doing there."
As a result, Susanna was keen to set the record straight about the awkward moment during an interview with the Daily Record.
The TV personality explained to the publication: “I’m single. The irony of that was I’d gone to bed at 7.30pm the night before and had a really good night’s sleep. It was so ridiculous.”
She continued: “But that’s Piers all over isn’t it? He infers that if you’re in a good mood there must be a reason for it.
“For me to be in a really good mood it means I’ve had a solid night’s sleep and come in feeling fresh and bouncy.”
