The dad-of-two took to Instagram, where he uploaded a snap taken from behind that showed himself and his sons Sam, 16, and Jack, 14, as they walked down what appeared to be a busy London street.

Ben had one arm around each of the boys as they walked and the trio were clearly deep in conversation.

Ben and his wife Annie are doting parents

Ben is a proud dad who shares his teenage sons with his wife, Annie, who he married back in 2004.

Last month, the star made his fans laugh as he shared a snap of Jack having his hair cut and couldn't resist making a "dad joke" as he did so!

A recent episode of Ben's daytime quiz show was playing in the background and the down-to-earth presenter captioned the snap: "We've finally found Jack's trimming point [laughing face emoji]. This could be my fave dad gag ever! @itvtippingpoint."
