Susanna Reid, 51, has presented on Good Morning Britain since 2014 after leaving BBC Breakfast. The presenter has publicly apologised on Twitter after she admitted the “Prime Minister” won’t. Her heartfelt message left fellow journalist Kate Bevan in tears after she saw it.
Susanna posted earlier today in view of her 846,500 Twitter followers: “I am going to say this because the Prime Minister isn’t coming to the Commons to say it.
“I am sorry for anyone who couldn’t see or be with someone they loved, on the 20th May 2020.
“I am sorry if that was the day you lost or laid someone you loved to rest. I am so sorry.”
Kate responded: “Just burst into tears at this.”
To which, Susanna replied: “Sending love.”
This comes as more evidence has come to light on Boris Johnson having a gathering in May 2020 whilst the country was in lockdown.
Witnesses told the BBC that the Prime Minister and his wife were among about 30 who attended the gathering on May 20.
However, Boris has declined to say whether he was among those there.
The Metropolitan Police said it was in contact with the government over “widespread reporting relating to alleged breaches” of Covid rules.
An email, revealed by ITV News, invited people to “socially distanced drinks in the No 10 garden this evening”.
It was sent when lockdown restrictions were still in place.
Adding, as little as twelve days later, June 1, rules in England were relaxed to allow groups of up to six people to meet outside.
Downing Street declined to comment on it, claiming the gathering is now being looked into as part of an ongoing independent investigation by senior civil servant Sue Gray.
Shadow climate change secretary Ed Miliband told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme the prime minister “cannot run and cannot hide” from the allegations.
He added: “It speaks to a rotten culture at the heart of this government and the rotten culture begins with the person in charge.”
At today’s Prime Minister’s Questions, Labour leader Keir Starmer called on Boris to “stop lying” to the British public and to “finally come clean”.
The leader of the Scottish Tories Douglas Ross has called on Boris to resign if he has breached his own guidance by attending a party in lockdown.
Douglas doesn’t think the prime minister should wait for the investigation to be completed but to “make it clear” that it was a gathering instead.
You can watch Good Morning Britain weekdays on ITV at 6.30am.
