GMB fans’ fears for Susanna Reid as she announces huge format change

She's presenting from the Poland/Ukraine border tomorrow

GMB star Susanna Reid has announced a format shake up that will involve her presenting from the Polish-Ukrainian border tomorrow (April 25).

Susanna revealed the changes on Twitter earlier today (Sunday April 24) as she confirmed a very special show guest.

She will be joined by Amelia Anisovych, seven, whose rendition of Let It Go in a Kyiv bomb shelter went viral several weeks ago.

Furthermore, due to the switch up, Good Morning Britain bosses also confirmed Richard Madeley will be co-hosting from the studio in London by himself.

Nonetheless, others said they were looking forward to hearing more from Amelia.

“Will be watching this,” wrote one person.

“My five-year-old granddaughter Mia loves watching the video of Amelia singing and wants to know how she escaped from Ukraine.”

I could never forget that beautiful little girl singing that song.

Someone else recalled: “I could never forget that beautiful little girl singing that song.

“She was a ray of sunshine in that darkened bomb shelter. She really lifted everyone’s spirits.

“I look forward to seeing you tomorrow in Poland. And the interview with Amelia and her mum.”

And a third person added: ‘Sing ever louder Amelia, silence the warmongers.”
