Susanna switches to ITV for breakfast

BBC Breakfast presenter Susanna Reid (below) is joining ITV to present its new morning show. Reid's move from BBC Breakfast, where she has been hugely popular with audiences, follows days of speculation.

ITV announced the Strictly Come Dancing finalist would be joined by former GMTV star Ben Shephard, Charlotte Hawkins and Sean Fletcher. They will be ITV's main weekday presenters on the new Good Morning Britain.

The announcement comes after Reid's agent confirmed that the mother of three – who was absent from BBC Breakfast this morning – had split from her long-term partner, Dominic Cotton.

ITV director of daytime Helen Warner said: "I'm delighted to welcome all four presenters to ITV."
