Is Susanna Reid's divorce the most amicable split EVER?
When Susanna Reid split from partner Dominic Cotton earlier this year it was blamed on the curse of Strictly Come Dancing – but far from being ‘cursed’, it turns out theirs is the most amicable split EVER.
In fact, the pair – who have three sons together – are on such good terms they’re still living with each other while he’s dating someone else!
‘What I’m trying to do is have as good a “divorce” as possible,’ the Good Morning Britain presenter will reveal in this weekend’s The Sun on Sunday magazine Fabulous.
‘But I do understand that for some people looking in, it might seem unusual. I definitely think people are surprised that we can do it this way.’
You can say that again…
Susanna and Dom were together for 15 years before parting in February.
After their break-up journalist and presenter Dom, 46, set up a profile on dating website Match.com saying he was looking for a woman aged 35 to 45 and added: ‘Underneath my blokeish exterior I am a sensitive soul.
‘I enjoy sharing things and am someone who doesn’t shy away from commitment. Life is for living with someone special.’
And it seems he’s found that special someone now… A few weeks ago Dominic was spotted outside his home with mother-of-two Adela Straughan, just days after Susanna, 43, left the house to go on holiday.
Adela, 43, is reportedly in the process of divorcing her husband and she and Dominic were snapped as they loaded up his car with padded jackets and bags on a Sunday. An onlooker reportedly saw them kiss before they headed off.
Dominic said at the time that Susanna – poached from the BBC by ITV to front Good Morning Britain – was aware that he was in a new relationship.
Admitting it was ‘odd’ because they still live under the same roof in South London he said: ‘Susanna knows I’ve got a girlfriend. This is an odd situation living together, but we get on really well.’
