Susanna Reid has credited Kim Kardashian's gorgeous toned curves in new untouched pictures from her recent beach holiday as she called out for women to "celebrate cellulite". On Tuesday's Good Morning Britain, the 46-year-old sparked a debate with co-host Piers Morgan after he compared the American reality TV star's airbrushed with the newly released unedited pictures. "The air brushing is in your face - these are not the 'consumption for public view' pictures," he remarked. "This is what she really looks like."

"I think she looks fantastic," reasoned Susanna as she described Kim's toned curves as "absolutely incredible". She added: "I'm glad these pictures are a bit more honest. Cellulite is to be celebrated and I think women will embrace the honesty." Elaborating further, she continued: "I think it's refreshing to see pictures of Kim Kardashian when she doesn't look so cellulite-free." Piers, 52, then asked his on-screen partner if stretch marks should be celebrated, to which Susanna quipped: "It absolutely is to be celebrated."

Kim, 36, was pictured holidaying in Mexico with a group of girlfriends, all dressed in bikinis as they showed off their natural, sun-kissed curves. In a tongue-in-cheek post, Kim later tweeted: "Oh and as for me you ask? ...I'm just sitting here on the beach with my flawless body." The mother-of-two has previously talked about body confidence, claiming she has learned to love her cellulite. "I have cellulite, just like almost every other woman on the planet," she revealed to Shape Magazine. "And just because I feel secure with my body doesn't mean I think cellulite is cute! It will always be an issue for me. So let’s just say it’s a work in progress!"
