Last month, the kind-hearted star penned a supportive message in honour of his co-star Kate Garraway, expressing his admiration for her strength, talent, and sense of humour, especially in light of her husband Derek's battle with COVID-19.

Ben is a huge supporter of his friend Kate Garraway

Uploading a snapshot of the pair at the Loose Women studios, he sweetly wrote: "I've spent the last twenty two years working with @kategarraway, learning from Kate, cleaning up after Kate, but mostly laughing with Kate."

"The last few years have been so so tough for her, Derek and their family. It's incredibly brave that she's sharing their story but one that she's sharing for those that don't have a voice."

The star is also a devoted family man

The host of The Tipping Point went on: "I couldn't be more proud to call her a friend, and to be able to support her in any way I can. Thank you for all the messages I promise I'll pass as many on as I can."

"Very moving but so very inspirational. So very brave of Kate," one of the star's fans commented. Another added: "What an amazing lady she is and so are her loyal friends."
