"Not quite sure how/why she puts up with me but very glad she does! Hopefully, this'll make up for the grief I got for posting the hard helmet pic #mrss," he cheekily captioned the post, which referred to a picture he posted earlier this week of Annie wearing a helmet during a trip on an RYA powerboat.

The family have spent the week in Devon

The beautiful photo sees the interior designer looking into the distance whilst posing in front of a gorgeous coastal backdrop. The family-of-four spent the week in Salcombe in Devon.

In the caption, Good Morning Britain host Ben remarked: "She may look great in a wet suit and hard helmet coasteering - but she scrubs up ok out of the water too! Mrs S may not have had her @fortnums flask but the @salcombegin was on tap!"

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.
