Susanna Reid shows off her 1.5 stone weight loss and says she feels 'fantastic' at 48

SUSANNA Reid has proudly unveiled the results of her 1.5 stone weight loss after binning snacks and giving up booze.

The 48-year-old Good Morning Britain host posed in a strapless feathered gown for Prima magazine, saying: "I feel fantastic."

She admitted: "This time last year, I went to the doctor with a skin problem and he told me I could do with losing some weight.

"It turned out I was at the upper end of my BMI and, I have to admit, I’d been feeling a little heavy for a while."

Susanna added: "I’ve lost a stone-and-a-half since then and I feel fantastic.”

However, the star said she hasn't always felt so confident, admitting: "I often look at pictures of myself and think, ‘Wow I don’t like that.’

"But that’s normal isn’t it? There are more bad pictures of me in existence than there are good…

"The fact is I’m a real woman, I just happen to be on TV and I’m quite proud of that.”

Susanna quit booze after her doctor warned she was at risk of damaging her body permanently.

She told the Sunday Times Magazine last month: "I was concerned because my skin was flushed, I kept getting flare-ups and blemishes, and they were leaving red scars."

The star added: "I’d tried all manner of creams and washes, but I knew deep down that what was happening to my skin was probably a manifestation of what I was putting into my body."

Before she stopped, Susanna said she “loved drinking” and admitted some of her favourite memories were fuelled by alcohol.

She said: “My favourite nights were spent at the Groucho sipping crisp, cold, dry white wine, and ending with vodka shots in dark corners of clubs in Soho.

“I loved the whole bacchanalian pleasure of alcohol: the fizz of prosecco, the soft bubbles of pink champagne, the rich depths of a pint of Guinness, the decadence of a shot of spirits."

But she added: "I had no issues with how it affected my behaviour — I had a lot of fun and no one got hurt.”

Susannah's full interview and photo shoot appears in the June issue of Prima, on 2nd May
