During the live broadcast on Tuesday, Susanna and her GMB co-host Piers Morgan were speaking to mum Charlotte Campbell, whose 15-year-old daughter Olivia had been missing since the explosion.

"I cannot image the agony." Susanna told her. "I cannot imagine what parents are going through this morning."

Susanna then had to pause while visibly holding back tears.

"It doesn't help anybody if I get upset," she continued. "You don't have to be a parent to imagine what people must be going through this morning."
