PIERS Morgan revealed Susanna Reid shunned the Good Morning Britain Christmas party last week because she didn’t want to be around booze.
The 53-year-old host moaned that sober Susanna was afraid to be around alcohol and even refused to eat with the team – to avoid booze.
Piers got on to the subject after he was accused of looking hungover by a GMB viewer, but he explained he had been partying with his son Albert on Saturday night.
He said: “A woman has (tweeted) this morning and said ‘Piers Morgan is hungover, not professional and not good.’
“This is not a hangover, I was hungover yesterday morning. It was my son’s 18th birthday. I had one of those great moments where there were 130 18-year-olds, and I got up and got him to put on 50 Cent’s In Da Club … it was fantastic. They absolutely loved it.
“They called me MC Morgan. I’m going to start touring school universities.”
Susanna then quipped: “You’re not hungover, you’re just very very ill.”
And Piers replied: “Trust me, Susanna has seen me hungover, in the days when she used to drink.
“At the GMB Christmas lunch on Friday night she didn’t even stay for the food, because she dare not risk being around alcohol.”
Susanna confirmed: “I had one sparkling water and left” and said co-host Charlotte Hawkins was necking the coffee tequilas.
Susanna recently revealed she had lost over a stone after embarking on a new healthy eating regime – and ditching booze.
When Piers gave her a healthy food hamper for her birthday and said: “The worst thing about being alcohol-free, you’re basically awake all the time, you obviously don’t sleep. You don’t do anything, you just exercise and eat kale.”
Susanna corrected him and said: “Actually I don’t do any exercise at all. I stopped going to the gym, I found it made me too hungry.”
Piers then asked how much more weight Susanna wanted to lose.
She replied: “I’ve levelled out, I lost a stone-and-a-half and that’s enough, and I don’t go to the gym.”

Susanna said during a chat with the sports star: “One of the things you have mentioned in the past couple of days is your weight, and it’s something you and I have sparred over as well of course.”
Piers interjected: “She’s lost two stone Tyson. After your little pep talk, Susanna’s wasting away!”
Susanna laughed and said: “You suggested that I eliminate, well take away, milk from my coffee so now it’s black coffee only. Thank you very much for that tip! We can all learn from Tyson.”
