However, it was during this period that her relationship with Dominic Cotton, her partner of 16 years and the father of her three sons – Sam, 13, Finn, 12 and Jack, ten – ended, leading to speculation that the long hours away had taken its toll.
It was also cited as a case of the ‘curse of Strictly’; Susanna is one of a number of celebrities – including Natasha Kaplinsky and Denise Van Outen – whose relationships ended after they appeared on the show (she finished third in 2014).
Susanna’s juvenilia included a review of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Croydon’s Fairfield Halls, which she submitted to the local paper aged ten.
He and Susanna co-host Monday to Wednesday (she shares duties with Ben Shephard on Thursdays and takes Fridays off) and their on-screen chemistry has helped to turn around some disappointing ratings – over the past year there has been a five per cent increase in viewing figures and the programme gets peak audiences of more than a million.The co-hosts illustrated their easy chemistry after being thrust into the ‘Sofa-gate’ debate (the BBC saw widespread criticism after Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin remained in the ‘junior’ spot to the right of the sofa following the hiring of Dan Walker).She launched Good Morning Britain (successor to the disappointing Daybreak) in April 2014, having been poached from BBC Breakfast, where she was voted the show’s most popular presenter ever, after 21 years at the corporation.So share this post by tweeting it out or posting it on Facebook.(You’ve got the formulas to know how.) I really appreciate it.
