GMB’s Susanna Reid’s quiet life in South London where house prices are £900,000

Susanna Reid, 51, is seen regularly as the Good Morning Britain’s main host but in recent years, the journalist has branched out to wider television presenting. The daytime host recently sat down with PM Boris Johnson in a heated conversation that was watched by an audience of 1.3 million. Now, Susanna has made a decision to step away from “extra work” in order to spend more time with her family.

Growing up in Croydon, South London, as a young girl, Susanna attended an independent school called Croham Hurst School from 1975 to 1981.

She was then admitted to Croydon High School and later St Paul’s Girls’ School.

After leaving school, Susanna began her successful career in radio before entering the broadcasting journalism industry working for BBC News 24, where she spent two years as a reporter. 

Outside of her career, Susanna lives a quiet life in Balham, juggling being a mum to her three kids alongside her dating life.

Back in 1998, Susanna entered into a relationship with British journalist Dominic Cotton, but the couple decided to split in 2014 after 16 years together.

The pair never got married but share three teenage sons together – Sam, Finn and Jack. 

Prior to moving out in March 2018, Dominic lived with the family, despite him having a new girlfriend, which Susanna said worked for them as it made it much easier for them to “co-parent.”

At the time, she told the Sun: “We still [get] on so well, Dom is such a hands-on dad and we really co-parent. So we live separately but together and happily in the same house. 

“I’m not saying everybody can do it, I definitely think people are surprised that we can do it this way.”

Susanna then went on to reveal in 2018 that she was dating wealthy Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish, who is reported to be worth £45million. However, the pair split in April 2019.

Once known as Clapham’s less-exciting, cheaper neighbour, Balham in south west London has certainly been having a moment of late. 

Twice voted one of Britain’s best places to live by the Sunday Times in 2013 and 2014 and coming in second in Time Out’s 20 best places to live in 2015, the area’s popularity certainly hasn’t decreased since then.

Only five miles from the city with excellent connections, a cultural smorgasbord and a family-friendly vibe, residents also benefit from some of the lowest tax rates in the country thanks to Wandsworth Council.

This short distance into central London makes it the perfect place for Susanna to reside.

Tucked into Zone 3, Balham is ideal for those looking to make their money go a bit further while not settling for the suburbs. 

In fact, over the last 10 years, this area has gone from strength to strength. 

The community has swelled with new arrivals making the most of the abundant green spaces, diverse food scenes and welcoming vibes.

It also boasts an impressive cultural scene, with not only a literary festival but a comedy festival too (held at one of London’s top low-key venues, The Bedford).

When it comes to properties, it runs relatively modern.

The area is now a hotspot for young professionals in the know, which is reflected in the average house price.

Susanna Reid’s net worth is estimated to be £7.3million according to, so it’s no wonder she can afford to live in such a place.

Properties in Balham had an overall average house price of £961,078 over the last year.

The majority of sales in Balham during the last year were flats, selling for an average price of £598,893.

Terraced properties sold for an average of £1,365,926, with semi-detached properties fetching £1,888,776.

Overall, sold prices in Balham over the last year were nine percent up on the previous year and 16 percent up on the 2018 peak of £826,374.
