Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid might be brave enough to sit alongside Piers Morgan most mornings, but the presenter has admitted that she's a little worried about her upcoming appearance on Celebrity Gogglebox.

Susanna, who has been watching telly with Judge Rinder for the Channel 4 series, shared her concerns with Piers on yesterday's (July 1) GMB, before revealing she had to watch "hours and hours" of TV for the show.

Living the dream, Susanna.

Ahead of her Gogglebox stint alongside close friend Robert Rinder, Susanna admitted that she has no idea what the finished episode will include. "We've not got any control over the editing," she explained.

Offering a word of warning, Piers added: "As our friend Eamonn [Holmes] found out, that editing can be savage."

Channel 4 was forced to apologise and review its edit of a recent episode after This Morning presenter Eamonn criticised the reality show for an "idiotic and cruel edit".

Following a clip from Ambulance, in which a 10-year-old boy had to resuscitate his dad after he suffered a heart attack, Gogglebox cut Eamonn's comments about his father's death and replaced them with a joke about driving his wife Ruth Langsford to hospital.

The broadcaster said that he was "hurt beyond belief" over the editorial decision, prompting swift action from Channel 4. "We have apologised to Eamonn over what happened in this week's episode," it said in a statement.

"We understand and respect Eamonn's feelings on such a deeply personal story. We have taken the decision to edit the episode for future repeats and All 4. We look forward to working with Eamonn and Ruth for the rest of the series."

Celebrity Gogglebox continues tomorrow (July 3) on Channel 4. Meanwhile, Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
