Earlier this year, Susanna spoke out about how she felt turning 50.
The presenter exclaimed she believes 50 is not the cut-off point anymore but is rather an invitation to power through.
She told The Sun: ‘I definitely feel more comfortable with myself.’

Susanna noted 20 years ago she remembers she would look in the mirror and question why she didn’t look like her then-idol, Patsy Kensit.
‘I’ve got to an age where this is who I am and I’m happy with that,’ she added.
Susanna revealed a few of her secrets which help to keep her looking so youthful.
Susanna gave up alcohol in 2018 and lost a stone-and-a-half in the process. But the real reason behind her quitting was to help her skin from becoming red and blemished.
A healthy diet has also appeared to have made a difference. For breakfast at work she has beetroot gravlax salmon and a cup of black coffee.
The TV star has sons Sam, 18, Finn, 16, and Jack, 15, with ex-husband Dominic Cotton. They divorced in 2014 after marrying in 1998.
