SUSANNA Reid was left horrified after a date ghosted her when she told him she didn’t drink alcohol.
The Good Morning Britain host gave up booze a year ago but her new sober stance didn’t go down well with one potential date.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Susanna, 48, recalled: “Someone — he’ll be anonymous — and I were setting up arrangements for a date.
“I thought it might be good manners to mention the fact I don’t drink, because most people do like to drink on a date.
“And, just like that, he stopped making arrangements. It just ceased to be. A lot of people just think you’ll be no fun on a night out.”
Susanna – who has three children with ex-partner Dominic Cotton – has been single since her split from Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish in April.
Despite being ghosted – a dating term where a potential suitor disappears all of a sudden – Susanna is in no rush to meet someone else.
She said: “I’m happy right now. I focus on work, family and friendships.”
Susanna has always been vocal about her choice not to marry, but admitted she could “never say never”.
She said: “I have a very pragmatic, realistic approach to relationships and I just ruled marriage out.”

The star also spoke about her outspoken co-host Piers Morgan, and how their relationship was “really difficult” when they first started working together in 2015.
She revealed: “He’s bloody-minded, stubborn, controversial and bullish.
“But, eventually, we found a way to work together, and now he’s a really good friend. I turn to him for advice because he’s always got an interesting perspective.”
