‘She’s been broadcasting from her home every morning this week because she is self-isolating.

‘I hope her family are all fine, but I would just like to complain because she’s been wearing little or no make-up at all and still manages to look very attractive.

‘So Susanna, can you just stop it, please? Because you are ruining it for all of us who have to trail it on every day.’

Kate captioned the video: ‘@piersmorgan Just to cheer you – my complaint about @susannareid100’.

Susanna recently revealed that she was forced to stay away from her mum on Mother’s Day amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Taking to Twitter, Susanna sympathised with those who are also unable to see their loved ones, amid government advice to reduce social interaction, particularly with the elderly and vulnerable.

Susanna penned: ‘Just spoke to my amazing Mum via FaceTime. Happy Mothering Sunday everyone – it’s time to come together by being apart! 

‘Sending love to those who can’t be with their Mums today and to those for whom today has always been hard.’

On Monday, Susanna reassured GMB viewers she had no symptoms, explaining that one of her children had mild symptoms that appeared on Monday.

At home, she told Piers: ‘One of my children has a cough, a persistent cough. And that came on yesterday. Before the briefing yesterday afternoon, the advice had been the person themselves would be confined to the house for seven days.

‘Well, suddenly with these new drastic action measures, that changed yesterday afternoon. It meant if one member of your household had the cough or fever you would all have to go in self isolation for 14 days. Immediately, I thought I can’t go into work and work with you guys for 14 days.

Susanna shares three teenage sons with her ex husband Dominic Cotton, and pointed out that one child’s symptoms have meant both households are self-isolating.
