She added: "Just common sense isn't it? Just common sense."

During her interview with former politician Edwina, Susanna mocked the government's new lockdown rules.

I saw the word Susanna and thought, 'oh, I'll just read it.'

She said: "So I can be on the common two metres away from lots of people I don’t know but I’m not allowed to know more than one of those people.

"If I see someone else that I know I have to move away from them to other people I don’t know."

Edwina exclaimed: "You've got it!"

Susanna replied: "Brilliant. That's total common sense! As long as I go home and wash my hands, everything is absolutely fine."

Meanwhile, Edwina also accused Susanna of not reading the government's 50-page plan to tackle the coronavirus.

Susanna said: "Why do I have to limit it to just one person? If I can be in a studio with lots of people, couldn't I be out in the common with lots of people?"

However, Edwina said: "Well Susanna, the way you’ve put that question suggests to me you haven’t actually read the government's 50 page plan..."

Susanna hits back

Susanna cut in: "Can I just put you right? Because I have read every word of the government’s 50 page plan."
