Piers Morgan teases Susanna Reid over her ‘gruel’ diet and admits he’s given up bread to lose weight

PIERS Morgan has revealed Susanna Reid is on a “gruel” diet to lose weight – and he’s given up bread.

The Good Morning Britain host previously admitted he is at his biggest, and needs to battle back from the brink of obesity.

Today he told viewers he’s copied Susanna’s diet regime to shed his lockdown weight.

Piers said: “I’ve given up bread and butter after seeing how successful you are with giving everything up, so I’ve decided to follow your lead.

She mouthed: “It hasn’t been that successful.”

He opened up about his decision to ditch loafs from his diet as he tried out beans on weetabix live on Good Morning Britain.

The British cereal company shared a photo of the bizarre dish – and people have been left in uproar debating whether it would be tasty or horrible.

Piers says it wasn’t bad – but would have been tastier if it was warm.

Dr Hilary Jones then warned how the high-fibre breakfast could affect him – as producers played fart noises in the studio.

Piers said: “Isn’t high fibre good for you? Just not for anyone in earshot or scent-shot.”

He joked to Susanna: “I know you’re on this gruel diet but please hold them in.”

Last month The Sun revealed Piers had sparked a fat-shame row with Susanna — saying she’s never been heavier.

He bemoaned his lockdown weight gain in a podcast saying: “Susanna and I, we’ve never been heavier.

“I’m about 16 stone, 6ft 1in and hovering on that body mass index (BMI) classed as obesity. I don’t want to get there. I want to get down below 100 kilos (15st 10lb).”

The TV pair have mocked each other’s weight in the past, though Susanna, 50, may not take kindly to Piers’ latest comments.
