The pair could be seen enjoying a stroll on Richmond Hill with doting dad Ben explaining: "Got some fresh air with Sam (who won’t blooming stop growing) along with, seemingly, the rest of the world!"

The Good Morning Britain star added: "It’s Jacks birthday tomorrow another lockdown extravaganza - any suggestions for ways to make it fun gratefully received. To be fair if he gets to play #cod #codwarzone for 24hrs it’ll be the best birthday ever!"

Sitting down with his good friend Kate Thornton for her podcast, she opened up about Ben's impressive – but unexpected – credentials. 

"He is one of those people who can literally turn their hand to anything!" Kate said, as she introduced Ben to her listeners. "I'll give you an example – ballet. Yes, he's got a Masters, a degree, in dance and ballet as well as also having Honours in rugby and football."

Later on in the podcast, the conversation circled back to Ben and his time at university – where he first met his wife, Annie. "I fell into television, I'd been at university and I'd done a degree in dance and I think in my head I was going to go on to drama school and I was going to get into acting at some point down the line," he shared.
