Susanna Reid has opened up about her love hate relationship with Piers Morgan – insisting while he rubs her up the wrong way they need each over to make Good Morning Britain work.
The brunette beauty explained that the clashes even happen in meetings off camera with ITV bosses.
Susanna said in her latest column: “I am in a relationship that is constantly compared to a marriage — with Piers Morgan.
“Piers calls me his ‘TV wife’, and this year we celebrate our fifth anniversary together presenting Good Morning Britain.
“Luckily, due to the coronavirus, we now sit at a two-metre distance and the ban on any physical contact means, despite reaching this landmark, we won’t have to hug each other.”
Continuing to write for Mail Online, she added: “We’re one of those couples who fight, and it’s not just for the cameras.
“We often have rows in the editorial meeting that we continue on air.”
Even when she returns to the comfort of her house, Susanna says she feels like she’s done battle.
She added: “Truth be told, by the time I get home, I feel like I’ve been through the wringer.
“But here’s the thing. It’s a dynamite dynamic.
“However strongly Piers argues his point, I’m there to represent the other side, even when it’s unpopular. He needs me to be the yin to his yang.”
On Tuesday Good Morning Britain enjoyed its biggest share of the audience yet in the all important battle for ratings.
Taking to Instagram, Piers gleefully posted: “BREAKING: Good Morning Britain had its highest ever ratings yesterday: 27% audience share, peaking at 32%. The longer the Govt boycotts us, the more people are tuning in.
“We’ll keep challenging them in their cowardly absence. Thank you for watching!”
Piers recently revealed he has signed a new contact with ITV to keep him hosting Good Morning Britain until 2021.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am
