Susanna Reid jokes she’s ‘covered up’ after ‘distracting’ GMB viewers in low-cut dress

Susanna Reid poked fun at criticism she received for wearing a low-cut dress on Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning Britain.

The broadcaster, 50, joked about ‘being in a more appropriate’ outfit for Thursday’s show as she wore a structured blue frock with a slightly higher neckline.

‘I’m fully covered up!’, the presenter quipped, before her co-host Piers Morgan insisted he ‘didn’t notice her cleavage’ in the plunging green ensemble.

Journalist Piers, 55, pointed out that her recent appearance made headlines as he said: ‘Yesterday, this huge historic day… But it was nothing to do with the [US] inauguration.

‘It was Susanna Reid’s cleavage, which appears to have made a huge, huge impact on the nation.’

The media personality went on to read a newspaper article as he explained: ‘Susanna heats up breakfast – I hadn’t really noticed, because obviously I don’t objectify you in the workplace so I hadn’t noticed.’

The piece also referred to when Susanna came under fire for sporting a similar dress during an interview with Hugh Grant on BBC 11 years ago.

The TV star playfully responded to the backlash as she said: ‘Women shouldn’t have boobs at breakfast – they’re for later on… shocker, women have boobs!’, before her fellow anchor added: ‘Well here they are, 11 years later…

‘And they are still complaining about your cleavage! I’m very relieved on behalf of the nation that you have decided to put them away today because we can’t cope. We can’t cope with that kind of heat at 6.43am in the morning.’

Later into the programme, the mother-of-three highlighted the controversial dress Lorraine Kelly wore on Wednesday, which featured zebras ‘having a good time’.

As she detailed her upcoming show, Susanna said: ‘You’re in a much more appropriate dress today, as am I’, before Lorraine, 61, defended: ‘I thought Susanna’s dress was beautiful’. 

A cheeky Piers encouraged his close pal to appear in another bold look for next week’s shows as he joked: ‘We need those back, they’re good for ratings!’ 

‘As long as you don’t show something, Piers’, the Scottish interviewer teased, with former BBC Breakfast star Susanna jumping in: ‘Apparently he has phenomenal abs!’

The ex-Britain’s Got Talent judge claimed: ‘Not my words’, to which Lorraine demanded: ‘Keep that to yourself!’  

Susanna has caught the eye as she slipped into her satin green dress, which caused viewers to joke they were ‘distracted’ by her appearance.
