What did Susanna say?

Susanna replied: “You tried to encourage me to go for walks.”

Turning to Eddie, she said: “You used the opportunity to get super fit Eddie, I just can’t… running for six hours is unimaginable for most people.

“To actually then do half hour interviews while you’re running, I mean are you some kind of super human?”

Meanwhile, minutes later, Susanna made another comment about her weight.

The star said: “Susanna, Adil, I’ve got clementine hot cross buns, I’ve got chilli and cheese hot cross buns, strawberry and chocolate, chocolate, apple and cinnamon and marmite.

“Which would you choose?”

Putting her hands on her stomach, Susanna replied: “I don’t think I can have a hot cross bun.”

Adil said, “You could! Come on,” to which Susanna added: “No, no, no, lockdown pounds are really… alright I’ll have all of them!”
