Susanna Reid reveals she’s kept teetotal in lockdown as Piers Morgan admits he can’t go a day without wine

SUSANNA Reid revealed she's kept teetotal through the whole of lockdown on today's Good Morning Britain - but Piers Morgan admitted he can't go a day without wine.

The presenters' contrasting attitudes to drink were revealed after they bickered over vegan sausage rolls, with Susanna a supporter of the popular snack while Piers remains critical.

Susanna proudly declared: "I haven't had a drink with lock down its enforced my teetotal."

Of his own drinking habits, Piers said: "I probably have a couple of glasses of wine a night.

"I couldn't imagine having a day without wine. You can't do anything. The days are too long."

He clarified: "I don't sit on my own in the kitchen."

And he then joked to Susanna: "No wonder you’re so miserable. Get a bottle of wine out the cellar and treat yourself."

Susanna ditched drink in September 2018 after a doctor warned she had a high body mass index (BMI).

It's helped her shed a stone-and-a-half in weight and has improved her skin.

Speaking to The Sunday Times Style magazine last year, she said: "Seven months on my skin isn't perfect but it's clearer. And so is my head. I am sleeping better.

"I don’t have hangxiety. I don’t miss for a minute that feeling of fizzing in your body in the morning, which meant I couldn’t quiet relax the day after a big night.

"Piers Morgan thinks I’ve become the world’s biggest bore since I no longer want to stay up into the small hours fuelled by shots."

Yesterday Piers admitted he's put on weight in lockdown after gorging on takeaways and wine.

He said his wife Celia is a bad influence as she often suggests indulging.

He told Susanna: "I have put on a bit of weight in lockdown."

She joked: "They call it the Covid 10."

Piers continued: "I wait all afternoon, and I get to about 6 o'clock, and my wife goes 'shall we have a Chinese, or get the wine out."

But Celia is managing to stay trim according to Susanna, who added: "Celia has this special ability not to pile on the pounds."

Throughout lockdown Piers has shared some of his extravagant meals and boozy tipples.

Over the weekend, he got stuck into a huge curry order.

Sitting behind a mound of food, he wrote: "About to enjoy a fabulous #BigCurryNightIn courtesy @bombaybrasseriesw7. Support your favourite restaurants and order a takeaway this weekend to help local communities and families whose businesses have been severely impacted by Covid-19"

While last week it was French cuisine, he fancied as he ate cheese and drank fine wine.

He posted: "Just remembered I’m not working tomorrow. So moved urgently to Lockdown Sunday party mode: fine French cheese, fine French claret, a few fine crackers & possibly a fine cigar."

Jack Whitehall sent him a DIY burger kit recently, and Piers had two to himself.

He said: "Haven’t had a burger in 3 months.. so doubled up when @jackwhitehall offered to send me a DIY Burger Kit.

"They were as good as he promised & all in a great cause."

Another shot showed him preparing to eat quails' eggs and rosé.

But it's nothing his pricey Peloton bike won't be able to fix.
