Susanna Reid looks unamused as Alastair Campbell tells her to ‘feel his wrinkly apples’ during impassioned rant about low-quality Ocado delivery


Susanna Reid was left speechless on Tuesday morning’s episode of Good Morning Britain when her co-host Alastair Campbell told her to ‘feel his wrinkly apples’ during an impassioned rant about a low-quality Ocado delivery. 

The 50-year-old presenter looked unamused as the former Labour press strategist ranted about the condition of his fruit, which the grocery company attributed to a shortage of pickers, lorry drivers and CO2.    

‘People will say, “well poor Alastair and his Ocado delivery” argued Susanna as she witheld her sympathy. ‘The world’s smallest violin has been played for you,’ she joked.

Recounting his tale of woe, Alastair explained: ‘So, last night my Ocado delivery arrives…’ before instructing Susanna: ‘Have a little feel of my apple.’ 

Taking the fruit in her grasp, Susanna said: ‘It is a little wrinkly, I have to say.’ 

Alastair continued: ‘It’s wrinkly, it’s soft and it’s a bit rubbery. So, we checked it out with Ocado and they basically said it’s because of a shortage of pickers, shortage of drivers and a shortage of Co2.

Taking the conversation in a political direction, he added: ‘So, all of the things we’ve been talking about are now affecting our apples as well…This is a Brexit apple, I would argue.
