The BBC Breakfast host is loving Strictly

Susanna Reid has impressed the judges on Strictly Come Dancing with her lively routines and she’s certainly got lots of energy.

But the BBC Breakfast presenter- who is dancing with professional Kevin Clifton – wishes she’d done more preparation to get her body flexible.

I have got a lot of stamina and I work hard,’ says Susanna, 42.

I have run and walked marathons this year but… you need to be quite supple and your body has to move in a very different way.

Really, I should have prepared better with Pilates or gym work or yoga.’

Despite her lack of training beforehand, Susanna is loving being on the show and is happy to show off her body in Strictly’s sparkly outfits.

Dancing makes you feel fantastic and you get to dress up and the outfits are beautiful – what’s not to love?’ the mum-of-three tells the Mirror.

Being quite bling and sparkly and magical and feisty and funky is part of the experience.’
