Susanna Reid SNIFFS Crystal Palace player Patrick Van Aanholt's shirt after he wishes her happy 50th birthday on GMB

SUSANNA Reid hilariously sniffed Crystal Palace player Patrick Van Aanholt's shirt live on Good Morning Britain today after he wished her a happy 50th birthday.

The ITV presenter was in jovial spirits as she marked the milestone a day early in studio alongside her co-host Piers Morgan.

Susanna, who turns 50 tomorrow (December 10), was delighted her favourite player Patrick took the time to send her a personalised birthday message.

The footballer said: "Me and the squad want to wish you a very, very happy birthday.

"And hopefully soon we'll see you at Selhurst [Park] to come cheer us at a game. Stay beautiful sis".

After his message, Piers began reeling off all the goodies Susanna had been gifted, including a signed football shirt from left-back.


Thrilled by the Dutch star's generosity, the broadcaster hilariously decided to smell the jersey after Piers mentioned Patrick had worn it.

Piers shared: "We've got a vegetarian hamper, a signed shirt from your favourite player, one he's worn we believe.

"A non alcoholic bottle of fizz for you, we've got flowers for you, vegan obviously we've got a cake.


"Everything is vegan and everything is healthy," he declared. "Happy 50th to my co-worker Susanna Reid, 49 for one last day".

Overwhelm by her gifts, Susanna joked: "Thanks for the kale".

The celebrations comes months after Piers begged his Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid to take a saucy naked snap to mark her 50th birthday.

In September, the ITV presenters discussed the nude photo Gwyneth Paltrow had shared on Instagram to celebrate her 48th birthday, which left her daughter Apple mortified.

The Oscar-winner proudly showed off her figure as she joked about posing in her "birthday suit" for the special occasion while skilfully protecting her modesty.

The actress also plugged her Goop beauty and skincare range as she credited it for her toned body.

Weighing in on the pulse-racing photo, Piers said: "48-years-old… I mean, she does look sensational, you have to admit.

"There's no other way of describing it. Interesting decision to do that. I mean would you two [Charlotte Hawkins and Susanna] do that?"

To which Susanna quickly responded: "No".


Piers asked, "Does that mean you'll be a year older than Gwyneth?"

"Yes I am and I'm going to be 50 in December," Susanna replied. Then jokingly added: "It did cross my mind – shall I do that for my 50th birthday!"

Egging her on, Piers shared: "Yes! Yes! Susanna Reid birthday pic at 50."

However, Susanna admitted she would never do it for fear of embarrassing her children.

She shared: "And then my mind went to how much embarrassment it would cause the children.

"And Apple, who is Gwyneth's 16-year-old daughter, just put one word on the comments section – 'Mum' You can just feel the weight of that 'Mum'."
