"One of the benefits of being ill is that people send you lovely things like this Biscuiteers First Aid Kit box that has come from my colleagues at work," Ben told his followers.

Ben is no doubt delighted to be recovering from his injury in his beautiful Richmond home that he shares with his wife Annie and their two sons, Jack and Sam. 

The Good Morning Britain presenter explained: "A few weeks ago you may remember I played in the veterans' cup - my old boys league... Without realising, I have ruptured my ACL, I've torn the meniscus and I've fractured part of my leg as well.

Ben has been given several gifts following his leg surgery

"I carried on playing for 25 minutes. It turns out I severed all of my nerves which is why I carried on playing."

The TV star continued: "They've repaired the ACL and the meniscus and now starts the rehab, the very slow, long rehab. However, I have to say, the painkillers seem to be doing the job right now."
