Susanna Reid wishes she could “defriend” Piers Morgan

The Good Morning Britain host took down Piers with perfect comeback

Having to work with Piers Morgan every day must be taking its toll on poor Susanna Reid as she’s admitted not wanting to defriend him.

It may all be banter but by the look on the presenters face, she wasn’t lying!

On Wednesday morning’s installment of Good Morning Britain, Piers started moaning about how he disliked how people air their political views on social media.

The 52-year-old host said: “I get annoyed when people start banging on about politics on Facebook – it really annoys me. I’ve had to unfriend family members.

“Please, I need some respite – can’t you just put in a picture of your little kid having an ice-cream or something or doing a cartwheel?”

While Charlotte Hawkins stayed pretty quiet, the timing could not have been more perfect for Susanna to step in and confess: “I know what you mean.

“When someone just keeps going on, and on, and on, and you just need respite, and a break, and you just wish you could defriend them, but you’re just forced every day to listen to their views.

“I know exactly how you feel.”
