Susanna Reid fans gobsmacked as she shares stunning pic of lookalike mum

Susanna Reid is one of the most recognisable faces on TV, presenting Good Morning Britain each morning with co-host Piers Morgan.

Taking to Instagram today, the 48-year-old made it clear good looks run in the family, as she shared a snap of her inspiring mum.

Sue Reid trained as a nurse with the English healthcare system in the early 60s, just days after turning 18.

In her caption, the GMB presenter said: "60 years ago my Mum trained as a nurse – why are we now struggling to fill the gaps in nursing?"

In the shot, her mum could be seen wearing her retro nurse's uniform, with her brunette locks swept up in a beehive.

One said: "Wow you look so much like your mum!"

A second added: "Don't you look alike! Lovely."

While a third remarked: "Like two peas in a pod – beautiful."

In her weekly column for Mail Online, ITV star Susanna went into more detail about her mum's career path, making it clear she was inspired by her work ethic.

Susanna said: "At the heart of my family is a woman who has spent 60 years taking care of others. Nurse Grandma, as we affectionately call her — my mum Sue — is who everyone in our family calls when there's a cough that won't go, or a temperature that needs bringing down.

"She is well qualified for the role, having started her training to become a state registered nurse at Westminster Hospital days after her 18th birthday.

"She took her finals in 1962, and was so proud of wearing her 'frilly', the distinctive nurse's cap awarded once students had graduated."

Reflecting on the state of the NHS in 2019, she added: "If only we all had a nurse looking after our family. In fact, if only we had enough nurses at all."
