Susanna Reid shocks Good Morning Britain viewers as she admits to phobia of gin

Susanna Reid made an alarming confession on Tuesday as she battled with hayfever on Good Morning Britain.

The presenter apologised on Twitter for sniffling and sneezing her way through the ITV programme before revealing a phobia of gin – which may cure her predicament.

She wrote: “Sorry for sniffles & sneezes this morning. May have to overcome my phobia of gin as I’m told the only effective answer is a G&T.”

Followers were rather surprised by her lack of love for the popular spirit while others thought the real problem may be her regular co-host.

Naomi Hill told Reid to get herself to London Gin Club who have “decent gin that can cure anything”.

Meanwhile, Andy Barrett quipped he would need “gin fed by an IV line” if he had to sit next to Piers Morgan every day.

Reid was keen to make the connection too during the show.

Morgan said: “She’s crippled with hayfever at the moment, she’s really beginning to deteriorate. I’ve never seen you so out of control as you are today.”

She responded with: “It’s because you’re back in the studio”.
