Susanna Reid left red-faced on GMB after being dropped by Ben Shephard

Good Morning Britain host Susanna Reid struggled to hold onto her dignity this morning when her co-host Ben Shephard dropped her live on TV.

Susanna, 46, was signing off from a very serious episode following the triggering of Article 5o yesterday, when presenter Ben decided to lighten the tone.

Ben, who also hosts ITV gameshow Tipping Point, picked his co-host up, while saying: “Andi wanted a lift. Here we go, all my training…”

The duo then fell back onto the sofa while Susanna gave the breakfast show viewers a flash of her underwear, prompting crew members to burst out laughing behind the camera.

Trying to regain her dignity before she heads off on her Easter break, embarrassed Susanna said: “Have a lovely Easter,” while Ben told viewers: “I think I’ve put my back out!”

Good Morning Britain continues weekday mornings from 6am on ITV.
