Susanna Reid posts adorable childhood throwback picture with lookalike mum to support Christmas charity

The 48-year-old shared the shot to promote The Silver Line, a charity phone line for older people, which her mum volunteers for.

She posted: "My amazing Mum. A volunteer with @thesilverlineuk helpline for older people.

"We are all lucky to have somebody this Christmas, but please consider those who will have no one to talk to on Christmas Day. For them, this helpline is a lifeline ♥️."

She then invited her fans to donate to the charity.

Many of the Good Morning Britain host's followers were struck by how similar they looked at equivalent ages.

One posted: "What a great mum you have and you can definitely see your mum and daughter from the old picture."

Others wrote: "Good likeness" and "Spitting image of your mum! x"

Another insisted: "Resemblance is uncanny."

This is far from the first time Susanna has brought her mum into the spotlight.

In 2016, she invited her onto Good Morning Britain, only for Sue to speak at length about how "absolutely horrible" Susanna was as a teenager.

Sue said: "She was lovely until she was 13. She was absolutely wonderful. She was a joy.

"When she was 13, overnight she turned absolutely horrible for two years.

"When she was 15 we sort of said: 'Look, hang on a minute. Either we’re going to get on well and support each other or we’re going to make each other’s lives hell.'

"We’ve been best friends ever since. I’m proud of her."

And, as today's post shows, the admiration is clearly mutual.
