The TV host tells fans her show is safe

Susanna Reid has rubbished suggestions that her ITV morning show Good Morning Britain is facing being axed.

It was reported yesterday that the show’s ratings had ‘plummeted’ since it began in April and it could be taken off the air in six months – but Susanna, 43, insists they’re ‘in it for the long haul’.

‘ignore the papers – we’re not going anywhere ; ),’ she Tweeted to a worried viewer yesterday.

Susanna‘s old show BBC Breakfast is said to have amassed around 1.17 million viewers over the bank holiday weekend while Good Morning Britain allegedly only had 270,000.

Although ITV reportedly isn’t expecting to beat its rival, it had hoped to gain a 15% audience share.

Good Morning Britain has previously been criticised for having its four presenters seated around a glass table, even though they move to a sofa later in the programme.

‘Why has ITV paid so much for @susannareid100 only to put her behind a desk? Its like buying a Ferrari and keeping it in the garage #gmb,’ Tweeted one fan.

Another wrote: ‘@susannareid100 is no use on itv those legs shouldn’t be hidden behind a desk.’
