Susanna Reid is a familiar face to many thanks to her role on Good Morning Britain, which sees the presenter wake up the nation with the latest news headlines. The 52-year-old was a household name long before her days on the ITV programme however, having co-hosted BBC Breakfast for 11 years from 2003 to 2014. 

But before she became one of the biggest names in breakfast TV, Susanna worked her way up, starting out as a news producer for BBC Radio Bristol. She got her big TV break soon after, presenting her first national news bulletin on BBC News in 2000 - and sported a completely different look at the time!

Back in 2020, Susanna treated her Instagram followers to a throwback photo from her first day reading a national news bulletin.

In 2020, Susanna shared a throwback to her first news bulletin 

Poking fun at her hairstyle, she penned in the caption: "Someone at TV Live unearthed my first national news bulletin on BBC TV. It was in May 2000 so there's 20 years between these pictures. Rocking the Playmobil hair."

Fans reacted to the snap in the comments section, with many saying Susanna looks younger now than she did back then. "You haven’t aged. In fact you look younger now," wrote one follower, while another added: "Definitely look younger now. Need your tips for this please!"
