Where is Susanna Reid today and why isn't she on Good Morning Britain?

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 since July 14th Susanna has been 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 missing from hosting Good Morning Britain today because she is on her annual summer break. The popular GMB host told viewers on Wednesday July 13th that it would be her 'last day' as she was taking a break over the summer.

Susanna confirmed she would be taking a break when co-presenter Charlotte Hawkins admitted she had struggled to book a holiday.

Ed Balls asked, “You’re off on holiday kind of soon, aren’t you?”

“Today is my last day for the summer,” Susanna revealed, although didn't give an exact date for when she'll return.

Susanna took some time out of her holiday to attend the National Reality awards, she shared a snap from the night, and captioned it, "WINNING NIGHT! Thank you @nationalrealitytvawards for the Best Celebrity Personality award and @gmb won Most Inspiring TV Show. Best team in the business - congratulations everyone who makes it work. Huge thank you to our viewers & the voters!"

The presenter is expected to return to screens before September, though ITV has yet to officially confirm.

Her absence comes after she had some time off back in June, when co-stars Richard Madeley and Ranvir Singh failed to explain why she is absent, which 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.

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?

Susanna Reid isn't on Good Morning Britain because she confirmed to viewers she is on annual leave after booking some time off work.

Susanna is 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?

Susanna Reid has not told viewers when she will be back on screen. It is expected to be after the summer. Fans will be hoping she managed to have some relaxation and enjoyed the summer sun.

Good Morning Britain airs 6am-9am on ITV.
