Strictly Come Dancing star 'splits from partner'

Strictly Come Dancing star Susanna Reid has split from her long-term partner, according to reports.

The BBC Breakfast presenter, who has been appearing on the ballroom show’s live tour, has three children with former sports journalist Dominic Cotton.

She refused to discuss the reports after images of Cotton from a dating website, where he describes himself as “separated”, were published.

Reid, who commutes from her home in south London to present BBC Breakfast from Salford, was favourite to win last year’s Strictly but lost out to model Abbey Clancy in the final .

Fellow competitor Fiona Fullerton later accused her of approaching the show “with a PR campaign driven with military precision”.
