Susanna Reid is "dreading" the moment she gets back home after dropping her eldest son off at university in a few days time.

The mother-of-three has opened up on the sadness she's experiencing ahead of the big life change, which she's described as a "reordering of [her] entire world".

Writing in her MailOnline column, Reid shared: "It's true I won't miss nagging my son about homework and the mess in his room, but it's hard to imagine the house without his calm presence and his ability to defuse any tension with a hug.

She added: "I tell myself this is just the next step. For my son, it's a natural move towards freedom, but for me it's a reordering of my entire world and, honestly, my heart aches."

However, Reid noted the exam results chaos and government U-turn back in August meant she had been able to suppress her feelings for a time.

The Good Morning Britain host also reflected on how the coronavirus pandemic and social distancing measures had impacted the move as she lamented they wouldn't be able to gather relatives to say goodbye and that she was not permitted to enter 18-year-old Sam's halls of residence.

She said she was "disappointed" at not being able to see where her offspring would be living.

Reid went to say the small age gap between the three sons she shares with former partner Dominic Cotton means it is the start of a "staggered period of saying goodbye".

Her younger sons, Finn and Jack, are 16 and 15 years old, respectively.

"I have to face the fact that what worries me most is my rapidly emptying nest," she said.
