Susanna Reid, 49, might have teased her next reality TV move after revealing how much fun it would be to do Dancing On Ice. The Good Morning Britain presenter has already tried her hand at Strictly Come Dancing, where she proved she has what it takes to wow the judges, coming runner-up on the eleventh series of the BBC show.

It would be so much fun to do Dancing On Ice

But she’s yet to take to the ice…

On yesterday morning’s instalment of the flagship ITV program, Susanna and co-host Piers Morgan spoke to reality star Rebekah Vardy, who is the latest contestant to be named in the line-up for the 2021 skating series.

“I’m looking forward to seeing you on the ice with a little bit more excitement than I should do,” Piers said as Rebekah chuckled.

“We will follow you with great interest!” he added before she signed off.

“I like Rebekah Vardy, there I said it,” Piers laughed as Susanna grinned.

“It would be so much fun to do Dancing On Ice,” she said as she sheepishly looked down to her papers, begging the question – could the ITV star take the plunge in the future?

The contest is returning for a socially distanced series as it makes its comeback amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Rebekah will be joining the likes of Myleene Klass, Neighbours star Jason Donavon, Coronation Street actress Faye Brooks, Emmerdale’s Joe Warren-Plant and TV personality Denise Van Outen.

Also confirmed to be taking part is former Olympic skier Graham Bell, ex sprinter and hurdling athlete Colin Jackson and DJ Sonny Jay.

Can fans expect to see Susanna unveiled as one of the final stars?

Elsewhere, the mother-of-three revealed she had been put in her place by presenter Prue Leith, after the new series of Bake Off kicked off last week.

The sassy remark came after the restaurateur caused quite the stir when she blasted mums for sending their children to school with sweet treats in their packed lunches.

In her latest column for Mail Online, Susanna relived that tense moment.

“I have interviewed Prue Leith a number of times,” she wrote.

“She once caused uproar on GMB when she called for a ban on school packed lunches for being filled with sweet treats by doting mums.”

But the journalist in her knew to point out the hypocrisy that, as someone who presents a cake show, is now advocating for a ban on sweets.

“I felt great trepidation as I dared to ask her whether she saw any conflict in her healthy-eating message while also promoting cake on a popular TV show,” Susanna recalled.

“She looked over those famous red spectacles and said witheringly, ‘Of course, it’s a very obvious one, but that is the competition.’

She added: “That was me told.”

Bake Off defied the odds by returning this year, as the 2020 contestants take on the challenge in a covid-friendly bubble at a time of national crisis.

Good Morning Britain continues weekdays at 6am on ITV.
