Susanna Reid displays her 1.5 stone weight loss in a glamorous photoshoot as she recalls flirty encounter with David Beckham
She recently lost 1.5 stone after a ‘lockdown slump’ saw her put on a few pounds amid the pandemic.
The television presenter and journalist, 51, wowed in a series of figure-hugging ensembles for the spread before opening up about a flirty encounter with David Beckham.

Flirtatious Susanna had David giggling like a schoolboy when she interviewed him on Good Morning Britain in 2015.
Yet she insisted things were purely professional between the pair as she named him as her favourite ever interviewee.
The broadcaster used her famed interview style, which has previously been described as ‘less a Paxman-style interrogation and more 50 Shades of flirting’ by a body language expert, leaving the former footballer in fits of giggles on the breakfast show.

She told the December issue of the magazine: ‘It’s always lovely to do the big celebrity interviews and one of my favourites was with ex-footballer David Beckham.
‘I spoke with him about his work with UNICEF, retiring from football and Bond rumours, yet I was still teased about flirting with him!’
Wearing a red dress and slick of rouge on her lips, Susanna was seen grinning throughout the interview for GMB as she sat back in her seat and joked that it was ‘hot’ under the lights, prompting sportsman David, 47, to compliment her ‘amazing’ dress.

‘It’s blinking hot under these lights, isn’t it?’, said Susanna as she fanned herself.
David replied: ‘It’s very hot. I’m surprised, you’ve got an amazing dress on and I’m in a T-shirt.’
‘I should have worn the T-shirt,’ responded Susanna.

After the interview aired in 2015, her co-presenter Kate Garraway seemed envious of the exchange. ‘What? The room was hot? You’ve got an amazing dress? Hang on a minute,’ she said.
Giggling after the segment, Susanna told Kate she now considers the father-of-four a ‘friend’.
Kate said: ‘You were nothing but professional but I’m weirdly still bitter.’
Susanna looked stylish as she posed for a glamorous photoshoot for woman&home, wearing a chic halter neck jumpsuit with ruffled detail and a cinched waist in one photo.
In another, she wore an elegant white floor-length one-shoulder gown which featured a length of material down one side which rested gently on the floor beside her as she posed.

Susanna’s sensational figure was on display in the snaps, which came after she discussed her weight loss journey in a chat with PT Joe Wicks back in June.
She stated: ‘The fact of the matter is that lockdown has had a massive impact on people.’
‘Despite all of that, and the fact that we could get fit online, we do face an increasing obesity crisis.’
‘I found it really hard to shift those pounds. What is the problem when there are so many workout plans, so many nutrition plans?’
She previously revealed an ‘excellent’ weight loss tip that was given to her by world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury, who advised she simply stop putting milk in her coffee.

Susanna, who is mother to sons Sam, 19, Finn, 18, and 17-year-old Jack with her ex-partner Dominic Cotton, decided last year not to take on any more television jobs so she could be there for her children in their final years of education.
However, she isn’t planning on quitting Good Morning Britain just yes, despite the 3.45am starts.
She said: ‘I love Good Morning Britain so much. Doing what I do is an enormous privilege. It’s a pillar of my life. I wouldn’t want to do anything else!
‘I’ve been doing breakfast TV for as long as I’ve been a mum. That’s two decades of getting up at 3.45am!’
