Susanna Reid Recalls The Time Bradley Cooper Asked Her Out On A Date
Remembering the surreal moment in her Daily Mail column, Reid explained how she'd been speaking to The Hangover star in a live segment while co-hosting BBC Breakfast, where she worked before she moved over to ITV's morning news show.
Sharing the anecdote, 49-year-old Reid wrote: "Actor Bradley Cooper is coping with his out-of-control lockdown locks by wearing his daughter's pink hairband, but I know he has a good head of hair from interviewing him on BBC Breakfast.
"I got the shock of my life when, live on air, he asked me out."
Reid continued to explain how the Hollywood heartthrob had invited her along to the BAFTAs, but her awkward response meant he never followed the offer up.
She said: "Bradley said he would be taking his mum to the Oscars, but had a 'plus one' for the BAFTA awards. Would I like to join him?
"He promised to get me back to Manchester early for viewers the next day.

"'That would be hilarious,' I replied, losing my cool.
"The joke was on me, of course, because he never followed it up, so I didn't get to wear my best hairband for the occasion."
Of course, since then, Reid has been able to interview many other big names - though more recently, she found herself having a right laugh with two unlikely stars.
Earlier this week, Britain's oldest identical twins - 95-year-old Doris Hobday and Lil Cox - made a cheeky appearance on Good Morning Britain, instantly winning over Reid and her co-host Piers Morgan.

During the segment, the twins joked that the secret to a long life was 'plenty of sex', while Lil also revealed she has a not-so-secret crush on Jason Statham.
Piers asked: "I heard I have a love rival - you're rather hot on him?"
Lil responded: "One night with him and I'll die happy!"
Reid could be heard howling with laughter with the cheeky response as the two women burst out into fits of giggles.
