Susanna Reid forced to explain croaky throat on GMB after late night at Wembley

Susanna Reid was back on Good Morning Britain presenting duty on Thursday after a late night at Wembley supporting England.

The 50-year-old presenter witnessed history on Wednesday evening as Gareth Southgate's boys beat Denmark in the Euro 2020 semi-final.

She was one of the 60,000 people who attended the clash and appeared to be feeling the effects of her night out this morning (July 8).

Opening the latest edition of the ITV breakfast show, an excited Susanna belted out football anthem "It's Coming Home" and quickly warned fans about her croaky voice.

She informed viewers that she went to Wembley and didn't arrive home until 1am this morning, just five hours before she was on air.

GMB fans watching home home rushed to their keyboards to point out that host Susanna sounded different.

Taking to Twitter, one observant fan penned: "Susanna struggling to speak?"

Another added: "Oooh @susannareid100 is croaky as all #Eng fans. @GMB might not have a voice by the end!!."

A third person posted: "Your voice is deeper this morning @susannareid100 Lol. @GMB."

While a fourth social media user said: "Well done @susannareid100 went to Wembley, bed at 1am, up for 4 & on @GMB looking the business & not much voice."

Susanna also shared a selfie she took inside Wembley Stadium with viewers before the big game wearing a face mask.

The former BBC Breakfast presenter revealed last week that she plans to continue wearing a face covering after July 19, despite the government's decision to ease restrictions.

The Monday date has been dubbed Freedom Day as it will see all lockdown measures lifted, with face masks no longer compulsory.

On top of that, the one-metre social distancing rule will be banished, and house parties of any size will be permitted.

While Susanna won't be obliged to wear a mask, the broadcaster will continue to wear one to aid the fight against Covid.

The GMB star explained she believed it is wiser to wear a mask in "any enclosed environment," where the virus can be more easily transmitted.

Turning to her co-stars Dr Hilary Jones and Richard Madeley as they debated “should face masks stay mandatory,” she said: "I think I will carry on wearing it."

She added: "I think masks in medical settings are going to continue to be what we have to do. So that’s an obvious mask-wearing."
