In the first, his son could be seen ahead of his dad on the path they were running on.

In the second, Ben was gaining on his 13-year-old and took the time to share some of the beautiful scenery they ran past.

Panning his camera, the dad-of-two showed the setting sun over a large, lush field.

He then moved the camera to show his son's back as Ben said: "Now chasing the sun, and chasing Sam. Uphill, as well."

Ben wrote: "The smile says it all - having the chance to get out, soak up some winter sun, and chase my kid around the park keeps my spirits up.

"Him beating me home seems to keep him smiling too!! I should add this was Sam's 100th run since the first lockdown.

"We went 10.8k at 50mins. I’m so impressed and proud of how he’s embraced his fitness, his desire to improve and mostly to try and beat me - which he’s is doing relentlessly now."

Ben and his wife Annie, who tied the knot back in 2004, also share older son Jack, 15.

The star shared his pride in his youngest son's fitness efforts

In October, Ben revealed how Sam and his brother coped during the first lockdown.

The Tipping Point host reflected: "Having boys is like having dogs. You just need to run them every day. If they're stuck inside every day, the built-up energy is extraordinary.

"As long as they feel like they've been able to exercise, then I'm very content with how that comes about."
