Susanna is known for openly talking about her weight, admitting previously that she struggled with a ‘lockdown slump’ and gained weight due to the pandemic. 

Speaking to Joe Wicks in November 2020, in preparation for another lockdown, Susanna asked for his advice. 

‘I’m going to be battling with the lockdown stone, it went on during lockdown one. I really don’t want another one going on during lockdown two,’ she explained.

While Joe suggested regular exercise and cutting down on certain foods to combat weight gain.
