Susannah Reid: 'BBC is in my blood'

Susanna Reid has dismissed rumours she is considering moving to ITV following her successful stint on Strictly Come Dancing.

The 42-year-old BBC Breakfast host has gone down a storm with viewers and is now in the all-female final of the dance show with Natalie Gumede, Abbey Clancy and Sophie Ellis Bextor.

There have been claims Susanna has been offered £500,000 to front rival ITV morning show Daybreak.

But she told the Mirror: "If you cut me open I would bleed BBC. I said when BBC Breakfast moved to Salford that the BBC runs through me like a stick of rock - and nothing has changed."

Susanna survived the public vote at the weekend - which saw Casualty star Patrick Robinson leave the show - despite being placed near the bottom of the leader board by the judges.

Her popularity on Strictly could still mean a change of jobs for Susanna.

A BBC source said: "We've worked with Susanna for many years and want that to continue. This is an exciting time for her - she didn't realise before Strictly just how popular she is."

But the TV presenter said before the semi-finals: "I have no idea what I am going to do after the weekend, let alone next year."
