Susanna Reid: ‘I look full-term pregnant’ GMB host speaks out after purchases go wrong | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid, 49, has opened up about how she thinks she looks “full-term pregnant” after purchasing some summer midi dresses online while in the coronavirus lockdown. The ITV presenter was not satisfied with the ensembles she bought to disguise the “extra lockdown pounds”.
While Susanna has been locked down at home with her three sons, Finn, 16, Jack, 15, and Sam, 18, who she shares with former spouse Dominic Cotton, 53, the GMB star opened up about what she thinks of the latest fashion trend.
Speaking in her latest Daily Mail column, the mother-of-three wrote: “Those trendy maxis make me look pregnant.
“They are the look of the summer, a modern dress that covers a multitude of sins,” she continued.
“But at 5ft 4in and curvy, I look swamped in a maxi.”

Susanna went on to add: “I’ve tried the Broderie Anglaise-style that makes me look like I’m getting married; the crumpled cheesecloth that resembles an Edwardian nightdress; and a neck-to-ankle floral number that I could smuggle friends and family inside.
“Granted, they cover up the extra lockdown pounds, but I look full-term pregnant.”
The star confessed: “I ordered some online but, with a heavy heart, only kept the midi, pictured.
“Pop two tent poles in them and I could go camping!”
This comes after Black Lives Matter protests saw Bristol’s statue of Edward Colston, a slave trader who profited from trafficking African men and women, plummeted into the harbour.
Susanna studied in the city before landing her first journalism job with BBC Radio Bristol.
She added: “I spent my university days 30 years ago in Bristol studying politics.
“I’m embarrassed that I wasn’t more clued up about its slave-trading past.”
The journalist continued to speak about how Bristol’s concert venue Colston Hall is set to be renamed.
It is also believed that Colston’s Girls’ School, which opened in 1891, was among others set up with the help of Colston’s slave trade funds.
According to the BBC, they have also removed the school’s statue and are reportedly “looking at” changing their name.
The protests emerged after the death of George Floyd, who was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis last month.
