Where is Susanna Reid and why isn’t she on Good Morning Britain today?
Susanna Reid has been notably missing from our TV screens this week where she normally co-hosts Good Morning Britain (opens in new tab) on weekdays.
Susanna often sits alongside a variety of fellow presenters who are on a rotating panel after Piers Morgan quit the show.
But today (Monday 20th June) Susanna was missing from the show, leaving Richard Madeley sat behind the desk alongside Ranvir Singh talking all things news and entertainment, viewers are wondering where is Susanna Reid?
We look at what has happened to the popular TV presenter and when she will be back on air…
Where is Susanna Reid today?
Susanna Reid is unexpectedly missing from hosting Good Morning Britain today and her co-stars Richard Madeley and Ranvir Singh have failed to explain why she is absent.
This has prompted viewers to wonder when the TV favourite would return.
One fan wrote, “Where is Susanna, this morning I just hope she’s okay so fabulous absolutely sensational lovely Susanna Reid @susannareid100”
Another viewer asked, “Where is is she ok ? @susannareid100.”
Viewers were hoping to be told why the long-standing host wasn’t working but as Richard and Ranvir opened up the show, they didn’t mention Susanna.
Whenever Susanna Reid has taken annual leave she has previously let viewers know. Speaking about sabbaticals with co-host Ben Shephard last July, Susanna, 50, revealed, “Today’s my last day.”
Replying, Ben joked, “Happy days!” before insisting, “No, we’ll miss you.”
Long-standing host, Susanna started presenting Good Morning Britain in 2014 and used to regularly host alongside Piers Morgan before he sensationally quit (opens in new tab) last year after a row over Meghan Markle.
Since his departure, several replacements have stood in with Susanna to present the breakfast show from Richard Madeley, Martin Lewis (opens in new tab) and Alastair Campbell (opens in new tab) to Ben Shephard, and Andi Peters.

Why isn’t Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain?
It’s not yet clear why Susanna Reid isn’t on Good Morning Britain. Some viewers have continued to suggest that tension has been brewing between Susanna and Richard – bickering over a variety of show topics in recent weeks including Love Island (opens in new tab).
Susanna previously called Richard ‘cringe’ during a show last week and earlier this month the pair failed to pose together at the BAFTA Television Awards, prompting speculation of tensions.
However, it could be that Susanna is just on annual leave, as all of the main ITV daytime (opens in new tab) TV presenters like Phillip Schofield (opens in new tab) and Holly Willoughby (opens in new tab) are contractually allowed to take a chunk of their annual leave off over the summer school holidays as it enables them to spend much-needed time together with their families.
Susanna is a mum of three sons Sam, 20, Finn, 18, and Jack, 17, who she shares with her ex-husband Dominic Cotton.
It is likely that she will spend some of her time with them during her time off. Meanwhile, Susanna has reportedly rekindled her relationship with Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish.
As a result, a pool of presenters usually cover for Susanna – with Charlotte Hawkins, Sean Fletcher, and Alex Beresford having stood in before.

When will Susanna be back on Good Morning Britain?
It is not yet known when Susanna Reid will return to Good Morning Britain. Fans will have to tune in to tomorrow’s show to see if the presenter is back sat behind the desk or whether there will be someone else standing in for the star.
Good Morning Britain airs 6am-9am on ITV.
