Susanna Reid gives in as she enjoys a glass of wine after being teetotal for two months

She has been teetotal for two months to maintain her one stone weight loss. 

But Susanna Reid almost fell off the wagon as her Good Morning Britain co-host Piers Morgan shared a picture of her with a  glass of wine on Friday, before Susanna joked that she ‘doesn’t have to pretend to be a nice person’ when she’s around him.

‘Wagon wobbling,’ Piers teasingly captioned the snap which saw the brunette beauty, 47, raising the wine glass to her lips.

The brunette beauty then  shared a snap holding up paper that read: ‘I love that when I’m with you I don’t have to pretend to be a nice person.

‘That s***’s exhuasting.’ 

Despite the photo the star held firm on her abstinence vow and later tweeted: ‘Thanks for lunch @piersmorgan.

‘Despite your best efforts, Instagram-teasing and clickbaiting, I didn’t touch a drop.

While the TV presenter has shed two stone after her doctor warned she was at the top end of the BMI, she admitted she still misses ‘letting my hair down’ with alcohol.

According to Medical News Today, ‘Body mass index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on your weight in relation to your height.

‘It applies to most adult men and women aged 20 and over. For children aged two and over, BMI percentile is the best assessment of body fat.’

You calculate your BMI by dividing your weight in kilograms by the square of your height in metres.
