Who is Susanna Reid dating? Steve Parish is the GMB presenter’s new boyfriend and Crystal Palace FC chairman
SUSANNA Reid has gone public with her new relationship with Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish.
The pair attended the Eagles’ fixture against Chelsea together. Here’s everything you need to know about Susanna’s new man.
Who is Steve Parish?
Steve is the 53-year-old chairman and part-owner of Crystal Palace Football Club.
He is a businessman from Lewisham, South London.
In 2010 Steve led a consortium of four wealthy fans who took over the club to save it from being taken into administration.
Steve was announced as the chairman of the club in December 2015.
He is divorced and has two grown-up daughters, Jessica and Isobel.
In April 2017 it was revealed Steve would be joining TV’s Dragons’ Den, but five days after signing up he pulled out of the show.
He said: “On reflection, I have come to the conclusion that I couldn’t give Dragons’ Den the time and commitment the show needs and that the entrepreneurs deserve.
“Therefore I have decided to give up my Dragons’ seat to someone else.”
Steve is also the former CEO of the brand-building powerhouse Tag Worldwide.
According to his Twitter bio he is a “rubbish but enthusiastic amateur racing driver”.
What is Steve Parish’s net worth?
Steve is worth an estimated £45million.
He began his career working in computer graphics but made his money in business.
He bought a stake in Adplates Ltd and renamed it Tag Worldwide, selling the company to Deutsche Post DHL Group in 2011.
How did Susanna Reid and Steve Parish meet?
The pair bonded over their love for Crystal Palace FC and have been dating since August 2018.
They have been on a romantic mini-break as a couple and been on dinner dates, cinema trips and visits to Selhurst Park to watch their team play.
Susanna and Steve have known each other for several years through their football connections as she is a huge supporter of the club.
Friends have said they began “hanging out” more over the summer and “fell for each other”.
Susanna sat two seats from Steve when Palace won 2-0 at Fulham on August 11 — weeks before they officially got together.
On November 5, the 47-year-old Good Morning Britain presenter was accosted by her co-host Piers Morgan about her new man as he claimed he thought she was confessing her love for him when he read about it in the papers.
