Susanna Reid highlighted the perils of live television when her attempts at concealing the remains of her breakfast were spotted by eagle-eyed viewers of Good Morning Britain (GMB).
The presenter was seen carefully edging a plate of food under her desk with her foot as the camera swooped in on her and her co-presenters Charlotte Hawkins and Kate Garraway.
Reid proved herself to be ever the consummate professional as she introduced the top stories for Tuesday’s programme, maintaining a straight face while sliding the plate underneath her desk.
Alas, despite her best efforts, the plate-sliding incident was picked up by one Instagram user, who captioned this video with "sneaky bit of footwork Susanna".
The 44-year-old later owned up to the incident on Twitter, where it seemed her unsuccessful attempts only served to endear her more to GMB viewers.Reuse content
