SUSANNA Reid told Piers Morgan she is “fine” today after her split from boyfriend Steve Parish.
The Good Morning Britain star addressed the break-up early on in the show and told her co-host that the pair have stayed firm friends.
Susanna and millionaire Steve Parish dated for nine months and Susanna’s spokesperson confirmed the split on Sunday but had declined to comment further.
Just after 6am today, Piers quizzed her about her love life.
She said: “I’m fine, we’re fine, we’re very good friends. We were at the match on Saturday. You know it’s one of those things.
“These things happen and we remain friends.”
A friend told The Daily Mail the couple have blown the final whistle on their romance.
They said: “It’s very sad, but they just couldn’t make it work.
“They both work extremely hard and there wasn’t enough time for romance.”
The Good Morning Britain host was first seen with the Crystal Palace chairman in August last year.
The news will come as a shock to many, after the pair were seen sitting side by side at the football on Saturday.
Susanna, 48, wore a camel coloured coat and sunglasses as she joined Steve, 53, to watch his team play Everton.
The star began dating Steve last year, her first public relationship since her split from the father of her three children, Dominic Cotton, in 2014.
The source added to The Daily Mail: “They met through their mutual support for Palace and will stay good friends.
“They watched the match together on Saturday even though the romance was over.”
Back in January, Susanna said she was “very happy” with Steve, but ruled out marriage.
She said: “It’s not a secret, but it’s private.
