GMB's Ben uploaded this sweet picture of his wife Annie

Prior to the most recent snap, Ben shared another rare image of his beloved - but this time, Annie could be seen at the front of a boat wearing a full wetsuit and helmet as she held a turquoise Fortum and Mason flask.

Ben captioned the picture: "There are many reasons why Mrs S is special but amongst the most important are her insistence in maintaining style and standards at all times, regardless of the circumstances or environment."

The couple share two sons together

He added: "So of course the @fortnums flask of tea came with us while coasteering with @salcombeseanshore!?!?! [shrug emoji]. (I did insist on her leaving the cup and saucer on land!) who by the way were brilliant guides and hosts, while all the family threw themselves off stuff."

Ben tied the knot with his long-time love back in 2004 and the couple went on to welcome two sons: Sam, 16, and Jack, 14. His family has been supporting him during his recovery from surgery after he fractured his leg and ruptured his ACL back in June.
