'Good Morning Britain' Bosses Under Fire Over Susanna Reid's Rumoured £1 Million Contract

|

TV personality Nick Owen has hit out at TV bosses who agree to give presenters huge pay packets, just one week before Susanna Reid's 'Good Morning Britain’ debut, for which she is reportedly receiving £1 million a year.

Susanna will be hosting the reboot of ‘Good Morning Britain’, which launches this Monday, alongside Ben Shephard, Charlotte Hawkins and Sean Fletcher.

The show replaces 'Daybreak', which has failed to resonate with viewers since it first aired in 2010.

Nick - who fronted the predecessor to ‘GMTV’, ‘tv-AM’ - believes the new morning show could suffer a similar fate if viewers feel alienated by Susanna’s huge wage.

However a source has reportedly told MailOnline that Susanna is actually receiving a lower amount.

Susanna confirmed back in March that she would be leaving her slot hosting ‘BBC Breakfast’.

She spoke of her excitement to work with her new team earlier this week, describing co-host Ben Shephard as a “legend”.
