Piers Morgan pokes fun at Susanna Reid's 'sucking lemons' face in throwback clip after Donald Trump's win four years ago

PIERS Morgan has poked fun at his Good Morning Britain co-host Susanna Reid as he shared a throwback clip of them broadcasting live from New York during the 2016 US Presidential election.

The 55-year-old took to Instagram last night to cheekily take aim at Susanna's 'sucking lemons' face when he announced Donald Trump winning the election in 2016.

In the clip, the broadcaster is seen speaking to camera as the Big Apple's skyline twinkled in the background and Susanna, 49, hilariously pulled faces while he confirmed Trump was voted into the Oval office.

However, the hilarity didn't end there as the clip then began zoning in on the presenter's facial expressions as the theme tune to beloved US comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm played.

Captioning the video, Piers penned: "#tbt New York, 2016 – the moment when I announced live on @gmb that Donald Trump had become President of the United States…

"and Susanna promptly ate 100 lemons. 🤣🤣".


Equally seeing the funny side of the video, Susanna had shared the same clip earlier in the day and wrote: "FOUR YEARS AGO! #CurbYourEnthusiasm".

Previously Piers and Susanna had hoped to return to the US to cover the election for Good Morning Britain.

However, the on-screen duo and the GMB team were forced to cancel scheduled plans amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Despite their travel plans being scuppered, they have been covering Joe Biden and Donald Trump's race to the Oval office today from London.

As it stands, the heated contest could come down to the key Rust Belt states that Trump won in 2016: Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin. If either candidate wins any two of these three states then they will take the White House.

Overnight Biden failed to deliver a knockout blow by winning key states that paved a clear path to the presidency and yet again Trump defied the opinion pollsters to deliver an election night upset.

Speaking in Delaware early this morning alongside his wife Jill, Biden said: "We feel good about where we are. We feel we are on track to win this election.


"It ain't over until every vote is counted. We're feeling real good about Wisconsin and Michigan. We're going to win Pennsylvania."

He thanked his supporters telling them to "keep the faith."

Trump won Florida early on and despite initial indications of possible shock wins for Biden in red states.

The Democrat's lead was eaten away during the evening as more votes were counted – leaving the election on a knife edge.

For months, opinion polls had predicted Biden would win by a large margin after four years of a turbulent Trump presidency.

But the race is much closer than they had foreseen with the 'shy Trump vote' becoming a reality – just like in 2016.
