In Susanna Reid’s day: Good Morning Britain host wakes up at 3.40am, before hopping into a car in her pajamas and having breakfast during commercial breaks as she details her hectic schedule

She is the face of morning television.

And Susanna Reid has revealed there’s a lot going on behind the scenes before viewers see her appear on ITV’s Good Morning Britain at 6am weekdays.

The TV presenter, 52, gave an overview of what an average day looks like for her during an interview The Sunday times magazine, which begins with a 3:40 a.m. wake-up call from her alarm clock.

Susanna revealed that she gives herself five minutes in bed to check her emails and the day’s headlines before getting up to start her day.

The mother-of-three said the start of her day is rather rushed as she pulls a coat over her pajamas and brushes her teeth before getting into the car sent to take her to the studio.

Good morning Susanna! Susanna Reid has revealed there’s a lot going on behind the scenes before viewers see her appear on ITV’s Good Morning Britain on weekdays at 6am

The time in the car is put to good use as she quickly catches up to the newspapers and notes from the interviewees appearing on the show that day.

Susanna also takes the time to review the stories the researchers and producers put together overnight.

She explained that the most important document she looks at during the trip is the so-called Grid, which gives the timing and key points for the show.

Susanna admitted that it’s “a lot” to take in during the 25-minute drive from her home to the studio at London Television Centre, west London.

Susanna admitted she loves her early schedule, saying, “My three boys divide their time between me and my ex. The brilliant thing about my job is that I spend a large part of my working day when they are still asleep and I am already home when they come back from school or work.’

Once in the studio, Susanna sits down to have her hair and makeup done by a professional, while having her first coffee of the day at 4:25 PM.

She said she will also continue to catch up on all the readings for the show during this time.

Susanna added that she will then be joined by the show’s nightly editor and her co-host for that particular day.

Her co-stars are Richard Madeley, Ed Balls, Rob Rinder, Martin Lewis, Ben Shephard or Adil Ray.

She joked just like Bruce Forsyth used to say, they’re all her favorites.

Susanna fails to eat before the show, but revealed that she does try to sneak in some sliced ​​apple and sunflower seed butter during the ads.

Once the cameras stop rolling, Susanna goes home and tries to sleep for a few hours before getting up for lunch.

She said she tries to have a healthy option like grilled fish and veggies.

In the evenings, Susanna relaxes by cooking a homemade meal for her sons, which she said is often something like lasagna or roasts.

This time is not for total relaxation, however, as she usually receives new instructions and catches up with her editor about the next day’s program.

While her lifestyle is working perfectly now, Susanna admits she’s worried about what it will be like when her sons leave home.

She said, “My mornings are intense with the adrenaline of live news so it’s hard to switch off. I’m perfectly happy with my own business – I talk to people all day, I have a great team and I love my close family.

When the boys leave the house, I know it’s going to be a challenge.”

Susanna said she ends her day with some quiet TV watching – “nothing horrific” and likes to take a bath to relax before turning off the lights at 10pm.

Good Morning Britain is on weekdays from 6am on ITV1 and ITVX
