But Susanna Reid’s relationship with Dominic Cotton has come to an abrupt end after he listed himself on a dating website as ‘currently separated’.

The 43-year-old Strictly Come Dancing runner-up is no longer living with Dominic, 46, of whom she shares three children with.

On his dating profile, Dominic states: "Underneath my blokeish exterior I am a sensitive soul. I enjoy sharing things and am someone who doesn’t shy away from commitment. Life is for living with someone special."

The reason behind the split is thought to be down to Susanna’s exteremely busy schedule – which sees her having to travel a 415 mile round trip from London to Salford to present BBC Breakfast three times a week.

Her commitment to the Strictly Come Dancing tour also could be a contributing factor.

Following the final of the dancing show, Dominic admitted that Susanna’s schedule had been "tough" and "really full on" for them both, adding he was "looking forward to having his partner back."

She told the Daily Express newspaper: "People get confused - they think maybe I'm not attached because I don't wear a ring. But it's quite common now for couples not to be married, and it works for us.

"I was a commitment-phobe until I met Dominic. But he's taught me a lot. He's very supportive and accepts why I don't want to get married. I had a choppy childhood after my parents divorced, and I want us to do it our way.

"The commitment and wanting a family unit for the children is our priority."

Susanna’s representatives have declined comment.
