Good Morning Britain's Susanna Reid has announced a break from the show.

Appearing on the ITV daytime series on Tuesday (July 27), the presenter confirmed the episode would be her last for the next six weeks, as she's taking a break over the summer holiday.

"Today's my last day," Susanna announced to her co-presenter Ben Shephard, who only recently returned to the show following a leg operation.

"Happy days!" Ben joked, before adding: "No, we'll miss you."

Susanna has taken a break over the summer months every year since joining Good Morning Britain in 2014, as ITV traditionally gives the main presenters of its morning shows the summer off.

Her time away comes in the wake of Piers Morgan's exit earlier this year.

This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield also started their break recently, and have been replaced by Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford over the summer.

The duo returned to the show after a brief absence, and will be filling in for Phil and Holly for seven weeks.

Over on Lorraine, GMB's Ranvir Singh is filling in for Lorraine Kelly for the remainder of July, and Christine Lampard will also be a guest host during August.

Good Morning Britain airs on weekdays on ITV.
