Susanna’s vaccination comes amid controversy on Good Morning Britain after an explosive interview with EastEnder’s Patsy Palmer on Wednesday.
Bosses have reportedly held a crisis meeting over the handling of the interview after the actress stormed off the show.
After receiving backlash for her actions on social media, Patsy angrily told ‘trolls and haters’ to ‘go f**k themselves’ for judging her, after ‘working hard to remove negativity from her life’.
And ITV bosses are reportedly concerned about the show’s reputation following the awkward interview.
A source told The Sun: ‘On Thursday, the GMB production team were summoned to a meeting about the handling of Patsy’s chat.

‘Her interview was viewed as a disaster as obviously upsetting anyone is the last thing anyone would want.
‘It was made clear to some members of the team that this was a crisis meeting as there were issues that needed addressing quickly.’
MailOnline contacted ITV for a comment at the time.
On Wednesday, the ex-soap star hit back after she declared she was ‘doing a Piers’ and shut down the interview, ranting ‘my issues I had years ago were talked about by me many, many years ago and it’s over’.
Susanna and her co-host Ben Shephard apologised to Patsy on air for the offending strap line, but explained ‘addict to wellness guru’, was a quote she used herself in her 2007 book All of Me: Love, Life and Addiction.
