She was born on December 10, 1970.

She was educated at the independent Croham Hurst School, followed by the independent Croydon High School and then St Paul's Girls' School in London.

Susanna studied politics, philosophy and law at the University of Bristol , where she was editor of Epigram, the student newspaper, which was short-listed in 1991 as Best Student Newspaper in The Guardian/NUS student journalism awards.

She then undertook a Postgraduate Diploma in Broadcast Journalism at the Cardiff School of Journalism.

Is Susanna Reid dating Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish? 

Susanna went public with her new boyfriend, Steve Parish, 53, on November 4, 2018 when they were pictured at a Crystal Palace v Chelsea match.

A friend said: “Susanna and Steve are exclusively dating. It’s extremely early days but they’re having a lot of fun.

“They have known each other for several years through their connections to Palace.

Susanna has enjoyed a string of dates and a romantic mini-break with the Crystal Palace chairman.

She was previously with the former sports presenter Dominic Cotton from 1998 until they separated in February 2014.

They have three children together – Jack, Sam and Finn.

Where did Susanna Reid start her career?

After leaving University, Susanna began her career at BBC Radio Bristol and then became a reporter for Radio 5 Live, as well as a producer before joining BBC News 24, where she spent two years as a reporter.

When the 11pm presenter didn't turn up one night, Susanna became a stand-in presenter for an hour (while three months pregnant with her first child), which turned into a permanent position.

Before going on maternity leave, she presented on the BBC's online interactive service and then became a reporter for Breakfast News in 1998.

After a second maternity break, she became a presenter on the BBC News Channel.

From 2003 Susanna became one of the main presenters on BBC Breakfast, with Bill Turnbull on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and previously presented with Charlie Stayt on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

In 2010, Reid stepped down from presenting Breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays to take a role on a new programme Sunday Morning Live.

When was Susanna Reid on Strictly Come Dancing?

In December 2013, Susanna was a runner-up in the eleventh series of Strictly Come Dancing with partner Kevin Clifton.

She lost out on taking the glitterball trophy to model Abbey Clancy.

But speaking about taking part in the show, Susanna said: “I'm going to miss it so much, the greatest prize for me was dancing with Kevin. I felt like a winner everyday.”

She previously participated in the Children in Need special of the show, pairing with Robin Windsor and eventually winning it in November 2011.

How long has Susanna Reid presented Good Morning Britain?

In February 2014, it was reported that ITV were attempting to recruit Susanna for their new breakfast programme, with a £1million salary.

Susanna had previously rejected claims of moving to ITV in December 2013, during her Strictly Come Dancing stint, claiming she would "bleed BBC" if cut open.

But on March 3, 2014, the BBC confirmed her move to ITV to front rival breakfast programme Good Morning Britain, which replaced its former show Daybreak.

She now co-hosts the show alongside Piers Morgan and Ben Shephard every Monday to Thursday from 6am to 8.30am.

She earns an annual salary of £500,000 a year for GMB.

Has Susanna Reid worked as an actress?

Susanna was known for treading the boards when she was younger.

As a child, she appeared as an actress in a stage production of Agatha Christie's Spider's Web (1982) with Shirley-Anne Field.

She then starred alongside Peter Barkworth and Harriet Walter in The Price (1985) on Channel 4.

But her biggest role to date was starring in Dreamworks animation Trolls in 2016 where she lent her voice to the character of Grandma Rosiepuff (UK release only).
