Susanna Reid: GMB host urges fans to remain ‘inspired’ as end of ‘challenging’ 2020 nears

Susanna Reid admits Piers Morgan is 'still annoying'

Susanna Reid, 50, like many, will probably be glad to see the end of this “challenging” year which is just a few days away. But as 2021 inches ever closer, the Good Morning Britain star encouraged us all to remember the kind actions of those who have done incredible things to help others throughout the coronavirus pandemic that has affected millions of people across the world.

As we reach the end of this challenging year, keep in mind the words and actions of those who inspired us

Taking to Twitter, she shared a snippet of her co-host Piers Morgan’s tribute to Captain Sir Tom, who raised over a whopping £30million for the NHS throughout the first lockdown by walking laps around his garden.

She wrote: “As we reach the end of this challenging year, keep in mind the words and actions of those who inspired us.

“This is from @piersmorgan column today on the optimism of @captaintommoore.”

The newspaper cutting was titled “my hero of the year”, as Piers praised the global icon for all he’s done and continues to do.

“That marvellous man Captain Sir Tom Moore who, aside from making the best-ever Life Stories dressing-room ride request – ‘I’d like two cans of coke, a bar of Dairy Milk chocolate… and six blondes!’ – continues to inspire us all with his message of hope,” Piers had penned.

“‘The future is in front of us all’, he told me and Susanna during one of his many GMB appearances, ‘and things will get better and we will get through this very difficult time. Remember, tomorrow will be a good day.’

“Never have these words carried more resonance, nor have I ever meant these words more: Happy New Year!”

Elsewhere, Susanna hinted she could have helped her GMB hubby out a little more during his highly-anticipated stint on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? alongside his former nemesis Jeremy Clarkson.

Ahead of the celebrity festive edition that aired over the weekend, he revealed his option to phone-a-friend didn’t quite go to plan.

After taking a gamble on an answer about Formula 1 which Susanna failed to help with, Piers ended up walking away with just £1,000.

Before the instalment aired, he hinted last week: “I did have to ask him and I did have to phone my friend.

“One of whom is sitting very close to me right now,” but Susanna couldn’t resist a cheeky dig.

“Well, you say, friend…,” Susanna quipped.

Piers replied: “Yeah, a friend would have helped a friend in need. Wouldn’t they, Susanna?”

“I’m not going to give too much away,” he added before Susanna further hinted her efforts to help were perhaps less successful.

“A real friend would have helped, you’re right,” she joked.

Piers went on to add: “The phrase, ‘bus’ and ‘chucked under,’ springs to mind!” with Susanna agreeing.

GMB airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
