A D-DAY veteran who flirted with Melania Trump has turned his charm on Susanna Reid on ITV’s Good Morning Britain, declaring her as stunning as America’s first lady.
Thomas Cuthbert, 93, amused Donald Trump last week when he said of Melania: ‘She’s nice isn’t she? If it wasn’t for you [Donald] and if I was 20 years younger.’
And ITV co-host Piers Morgan said he was up to his old tricks yesterday when he gave Reid ‘a big hug and a kiss’ and ‘basically did the same to her’. Mr Cuthbert, who lives in Essex, replied: ‘She’s as beautiful as her.’
When Morgan pointed out Reid, 48, was single after her split from Crystal Palace owner Steve Parish, Mr Cuthbert said: ‘Is she? Well it shouldn’t be too long.’
Daughter Carole Monk joked her dad was a ‘lost cause’ but had vowed to stay single after the death 25 years ago of his wife Joyce, who he wed in 1945. ‘My mum was the love of his life,’ she said. ‘There have been some women at the bowls but he’s just not interested.’
