“Thank you very much,” Ben replied.

Susanna pointed out, “You look a little uncomfortable – I’m just going to take the mini camera. “

She then zoomed in on Ben’s leg, which was supported by a chair.

“I was just thinking, I’ve been gone a few weeks, I’m going to start making the changes!” I feel like I should be able to do the show with my feet up! “

He then explained how he had injured his leg “while trying to pretend [he] was still 25 years old ”.

Ben previously shared a photo and videos of himself in the hospital on his Instagram Stories, saying, “The operation is happening today !! so far so good – arrow on the right leg @andipeters on tv + super stylish socks on. ”

Hours later, tired Ben addressed his fans saying, “Hello everyone, thank you for all the amazing and adorable messages. For those who didn’t know, I ruptured my ACL and tore my knee meniscus while playing soccer. “

He then shared a look at his leg, which was wrapped.

Ben continued, “This is what it looks like at the moment. It’s not a fake tan by the way, I promise, despite my roots in Essex. “

Pointing to the orange-yellow color of her legs, he joked, “I didn’t pretend to tan before my surgery.

“So they fixed the ACL and the meniscus and now start the rehabilitation – very slow, long, rehabilitation. I have to say the pain relievers seem to be doing the job right now! “

Tagging his co-stars Kate Garraway and Susanna Reid, he added, “Can’t believe I released on pain relievers like this a few years ago!
