A flirtatious Susanna Reid had David Beckham giggling like a schoolboy when she interviewed him on Good Morning Britain in 2015.

But the television presenter, 51, has insisted things were purely professional between the pair as she named him as her favourite ever interviewee in a new interview with woman&home.

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 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 Sussana 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, Sussana told Kate she now considers the father-of-four a ‘friend’.

Kate said: ‘You were nothing but professional but I’m weirdly still bitter.’

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, 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!’
