BBC presenter Susanna Reid turned up the heat on her breakfast show yesterday by flirting with a rock star 15 years her junior during an interview.
The 42-year-old star raised eyebrows during her chat with Arctic Monkeys band member Alex Turner, which led to her telling him: ‘I bet you look good on the dance floor.’
After watching Miss Reid playing with her hair during the exchange with the singer and guitarist, viewers immediately took to Twitter to express their astonishment about her ‘flirtatious’ behaviour.
Miss Reid, who has three sons with her long-term boyfriend Dominic Cotton, is taking part in the current series of Strictly Come Dancing.
She was interviewing Turner, who is dating glamorous American actress Arielle Vandenberg, about the band’s album, AM, on BBC Breakfast yesterday.
At the end of the five-minute clip, she urged him to join Strictly Come Dancing, referencing the band’s 2005 hit, I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor.
She said: ‘When I said I was interviewing you, people did say, “would he do Strictly?” because they bet that you look good on the dance floor.’
Turner, 27, replied: ‘Of course... I should have been the one that said you look good on the dance floor.’
