Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid are all smiles as he beats former co-host to win Host of the Year award

Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid were all smiles when they reunited on Wednesday when the two presenters attended this year’s TRIC Awards.

It was the first time the couple had been seen together since Piers stormed Good Morning Britain in March, during an argument over Meghan Markle, who had seen him quit the show for good the same day.

Piers and Susanna went head-to-head in the Best News anchor category at the annual TV and Radio Awards.

The BBC’s Huw Edwards was also up for the award for best news anchor, and the Welsh presenter posed for a photo with Piers ahead of the ceremony.

“You’re taking Boyo down,” Piers tweeted.

But fresh to be booed at the NTAs last week, it was finally piers night.

After winning the award, Piers invited Susanna on stage during her acceptance speech.

“I thought it was fair to share with Susanna,” he said.

“I haven’t seen Susanna since I left, so it was very emotional. You become very close to someone when you work so closely together. Few men have seen Susanna Reid at 5 a.m. in her hair curlers.

Susanna then rang the doorbell saying, “He can start an argument in an empty room. I have never seen anyone get so upset over a sausage roll.

After his victory, Piers shared a photo of himself posing with his trophy, which he simply captioned “Victory.”

Piers’ victory at the TRIC Award comes after 18 months of controversy for the presenter.

While his talks with the GMB with various ministers throughout the pandemic have won him praise for holding the government to account, he has also been repeatedly criticized for his comments on various public figures, namely Meghan markle.

After the Duchess of Sussex’s interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, Piers questions string of Meghan’s claims, including those concerning his mental health.

These were widely condemned at the time, and led to more complaints to Ofcom about the broadcast than any other incident in the history of the TV watchdog.

After that, Piers was called to the air by GMB presenter Alex Beresford, prompting the presenter to storm backstage during the live broadcast, and when Ofcom confirmed that they would investigate the case that night, he announced his immediate resignation from the show.

Six months later, Ofcom ruled that ITV did not violate its guidelines by broadcasting Piers’ comments, pointing out that he was challenged by others on the show that day, including Susanna.
