Susanna Reid has taken the starring role in a new promo for Good Morning Britain, which showcases ITV’s upcoming daytime autumn lineup.
It’s the first time the presenter has appeared in promotional footage since Piers Morgan left the show earlier this year.
The 50-year-old joins her GMB colleagues Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway, taking centre stage in the ITV studio.
Ranvir Singh and Charlotte Hawkins appear with doctors Hilary Jones and Amir Khan.
It comes after Susanna recently celebrated a significant boost to Good Morning Britain’s ratings following Piers’ controversial exit from the ITV programme.

‘Celebrating yesterday’s fab @gmb ratings – peaking at 1.2m viewers and up 20% on the same day last year! Well done Team @gmb,’ she wrote.
Since March 2021, Susanna has gone without a permanent co-host on GMB after Piers quit the show after six years.
Piers’ departure came after 41,000 people complained to Ofcom about the broadcaster’s remarks about the comments Meghan Markle gave about her mental health during her and Prince Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Susanna took a break from the show in July, but it was recently confirmed that Susanna would return from her break early to present Good Morning Britain on Friday so Kate can take her kids on a holiday.
The main presenters of ITV’s morning shows, including Holly and Phillip on This Morning, regularly take a break for the school summer holidays, including six weeks for the summer holidays, and a week for half terms.
Susanna has been a mainstay on GMB since 2014. She was teamed up with Piers for years before his sensational exit in March.
Good Morning airs on weekdays at 6am on ITV.
