Susanna Reid took to Twitter today to send her congratulations to Piers Morgan after Good Morning Britain scooped a nomination for a Broadcast Award. The presenter tagged her former co-star into the post despite the fact that he quit the show last month.

“Congratulations @gmb and @piersmorgan,” the mum-of-three’s tweet began, in view of her 825,900 followers.

Susanna, who fronted the show for almost six years alongside Piers, said it had been a “privilege” to work with him during the unprecedented coronavirus pandemic.

The duo continued to broadcast the programme throughout over a 12-month period, which included three national lockdowns.

“It was a privilege for us to continue broadcasting to people, many of whom were isolated, all of whom needed information and the government held to account at such a critical time,” her post continued.

The 50-year-old ITV star made her comments while sharing a tweet from Good Morning Britain’s official account, which announced the nomination.

“We have some exciting news!

“We have been nominated for the Best Lockdown Programme – News, Documentaries and Factual category in this year’s @BroadcastAwards!” it read.

Many took to the comments section to share their thoughts.

“You were great too..,” one social media user remarked, before adding, “it was a combined effort that you brought an important balance to.

“You picked the right things to go into battle for but didn’t allow scaremongering & kept everything calm and on a very human level..wouldn’t have worked without a sensitive touch.”

A second said: “Thank you, Susanna. Firstly, to yourself, just for being there for us.

“Secondly, to Crediting @piersmorgan directly.

“It was always a joint effort, a working-relationship. Oh, how it WORKED.”

Although some viewers said they missed Piers, others said they liked the fact that Susanna was no longer being interrupted by the straight-talking star.

“Get piers back not same without him x,”(sic) one person penned.

“I miss you guys working together,” another added.

A third fan penned: “You should get a medal for putting up with him. He constantly interrupted and questioned you.

“It was cringe worthy at times. Well done to you and the rest of the team especially @kategarraway inspirational.”

Piers also shared the GMB post on his own Twitter account.

He simply wrote “congratulations” online when sharing the “exciting announcement” with his 7.9 million followers.

Following his exit from the show over a row about disbelieving Meghan Markle’s comments in her interview with Oprah Winfrey, Susanna continues to take control of the morning show.

She currently works with a series of rotating co-stars including Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard.
