Feisty Susanna Reid admits she is 'sparring all the time' with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain

FEISTY Susanna Reid has admitted she is 'sparring all the time' with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain.

The two presenters have worked together on the ITV morning show for the last seven years.

Piers, 55, often courts controversy with some of his comments on the show, and Susanna sometimes has to fight to get a word in.

However, it's a dynamic that works with viewers but Susanna admits sitting next to Piers can leave her on edge.

She cheekily told The Times: "Ben Shephard is much more like a warm hug, whereas Piers Morgan is like sitting next to a pin cushion."

The 50-year-old added of Piers: "We do fight like Punch and Judy, verbally. We’re sparring all the time.


"You say he takes up more of the oxygen, but I use my chunk of time, I hope, very wisely."

Susanna also made clear that Piers knows when to draw the line under his teasing and probing of her.

The star is dating Crystal Palace football club chairman Steve Parish and she said: "Piers doesn't get told. But for all his sort of reputation on air, off air we have a good relationship. He respects my boundaries."

However, the pair do still clash occasionally, most recently over Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

Harry and Meghan were discussed following their recent pregnancy announcement and news of their upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey, and Piers called for them to be removed from the Royal Family's line of succession.

Susannapulled faces and rolled her eyes as Piers ranted about the pair, eventually interrupting: "Do you not understand the difference between them wanting some control over what is released to the public? It's called boundaries!"

But she was outnumbered, with all three guests agreeing with Piers as the star hit back: "You're talking to four journalists who don't agree with you.

"You're supposed to be a journalist, how can you think that?"

Good Morning Britain airs daily from 6am on ITV.
