Susanna then cut off but could be heard saying: “OK, is that… Is that… OK.”

The reporter then announced she couldn’t hear anything before Richard took over from the studio.

He continued: “We’re having some slight communication issues there.

“We kind of assumed that might happen at some point today. That’s technology 2022 for you.

“Don’t worry, we’ll get the link back up again and working. Let me tell you what’s still to come.”

Susanna is currently sending reports on the ground at Medyka.

This is the busiest spot for Ukrainians desperately fleeing the brutal war in their country.

She told viewers that there’s a huge degree of emotion there.

Meanwhile, Richard, 65, is holding the fort in the studio.

It’s not yet known how long Susanna will be away from the studio.

Susanna revealed the format change on her Twitter account yesterday, leaving fans concerned for her safety.

She wrote: “TOMORROW: I am @gmb in Poland with a special interview with Amelia [Anisovych] & her mum Lilia.

“The 7-year-old who sang Let it Go in the Kyiv bomb shelter has became a symbol of her nation.

“And I’ll be reporting from the Polish-Ukrainian border live from 6am Monday #GMB.”

Most of her followers left comments wishing her luck.

But some people told Susanna to be safe.

“Just want to say @susannareid100 be very very careful out there,” one said.
