Susanna Reid 'Worried career could be damaged' by failure of ' ITVs' Good Morning Britain'
The revamped breakfast show replaced ‘Daybreak’, however despite bosses’ best efforts, it has failed to pull in viewers.
Last Monday, ‘Good Morning Britain’ saw its lowest ever audience, with just 270,000 people tuning in while 1.17 million watched Susanna's former show, 'BBC Breakfast'.
A source told The Sun: “Susanna is not happy with how things are going as she is the figurehead of the show and fears her name is on the line.”
Worried ITV bosses are said to be holding crisis talks to look at ways of turning the show's fortunes around.
One suggested change is to ditch the controversial desks that the presenters sit behind, which haven't gone down well with viewers.
The source told The Sun: “We all thought things couldn’t get any worse after Daybreak.
“GMB’s editor is in constant meetings with executives. Everyone is scratching their heads about what to do.”
