Reaching one million Twitter followers isn't the only good news the programme celebrated recently. The ITV show has been enjoying high audience ratings in recent weeks. 

Just last Friday, Susanna announced that the programme had attracted one million viewers. In a post to Twitter, the mum-of-three shared a beaming selfie taken alongside director Jack Rebours, alongside the caption: "High ratings in recent weeks - ONE MILLION VIEWERS! Another peak for our show - thank you to everyone watching. And to one of our brilliant directing team @JackRebours who was at the helm yesterday."

The good news comes just a day after Richard Madeley returned to the programme following a brief period of absence. 

The 66-year-old received a warm welcome from Susanna on Monday's show, when he explained that a "freak accident" had forced him to take a break from his hosting duties.

Detailing the incident, Richard said he was "crouching down on a slope" beside his open car door and was "fiddling around with something at the bottom of the car" when the heavy door shut on him. 

"It just hit me on the chin and I really bit my tongue, to the extent that I needed an op. I had to have some stitches in it," he said.
