Susanna Reid has surprised fans by sharing a throwback clip of her reading the news for the BBC in 2000.

The video shows the Good Morning Britain presenter, 49, reporting on a demonstration by anti-capitalist protesters in Parliament Square.

She captioned the post: “If I am not mistaken, this was my very first national news bulletin for BBC TV 20 years ago.”

However, it was her look that prompted a reaction from her followers.

Reid, who now sits alongside Piers Morgan on GMB, is seen sporting a short bob haircut instead of her usual flowing look.

Fans noted how former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Reid looked younger now than she did two decades ago.

One wrote: “Congratulations you have won the 19 year challenge hands down.”

Another said: “Go for the obligatory middle-aged bob in your twenties and then grow it out in your middle age. Instant rejuvenation.”

One woman remarked of her haircut: “Had that haircut too. Never did us any favours!”
