Gist: Susanna Reid speaks up after heartbreaking cancer diagnosis


The 50-year-old TV star has sent a message of support to Geoff, 52, who is undergoing a series of treatments after being diagnosed with leukaemia in 2017.

Journalist Geoff told MailOnline that he is not “out of the woods yet” and revealed that he’s had 100 rounds of chemotherapy, 38 bone marrow biopsies as well as radiotherapy.

He also detailed the medications he has had within the past four years, and says he has taken more than 6,000 pills during this time.

She had her say on how she felt when her co-host stormed off-set after an explosive row with weather presenter Alex Beresford.

The row concerned Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle – and the show segment reached a record breaking number of complaints to broadcasting watchdog Ofcom for Piers’ disbelief over her mental health struggles.

Piers later won the Ofcom battle – but not before he quit the show altogether.

Susanna admitted it felt “surreal” when Piers up and left.

“I went out to talk to him; we had an animated discussion. I don’t remember what I said, it’s all a bit of a blur now, but back he came,” she said.

“I didn’t think he’d really leave the show.”

“He’s not left ITV – he’s still doing Life Stories. But no, he won’t be back on the GMB sofa.”
