Normally viewers think Susanna Reid can do no wrong on Good Morning Britain, mostly because she’s admired for putting up with Piers Morgan.
But her new ITV show Save Money: Good Food was hit by criticism after it aired Tuesday night.
The presenter teamed up with Saturday Kitchen chef Matt Tebutt to show families – and viewers at home – how to knock up family feasts on a budget of a fiver per meal.
Lessons in how to eat delicious, quality grub on a budget? So far, so good.
However, some viewers were disappointed with the show’s choice of family for the first show.
Manoj and Amy fork out £170 A WEEK on their food shop. They were stunned to be told this, guessing they were spending £70-£100.
People were not happy that the new series was advising people who, in their opinion, didn’t need help.
Someone tweeted: “People who don’t realise they’re spending £170 per week on food don’t need to go on a show about saving money.”
Another posted: “That is ‘NOT’ a poor family, a stupid one perhaps?”
A third wrote: “How do they not know they are spending over £170 a week on food, more money than sense #SaveMoneyGoodFood.”

And still the vitriol came… another typed: “My god it really gets on my nerves when these saving money programmes, use high end income families.”
The eight-part series is part of ITV’s Save Money strand, which has featured Save Money: Lose Weight and Save Money: Good Health.
