Ben Shephard shares health update
Taking to social media yesterday (January 9), Ben shared the unusual method he is using to help heal his knee.
The presenter shared a clip of his leg attached to muscle stimulators from a company called Compex UK.
His leg pulsed in the clip as the stimulators worked their magic.
Always looks like something out of Aliens!
In the caption, Ben wrote: “Had a knee incident over NY so back on the @complex_uk to get the muscle firing!!!
“Always looks like something out of Aliens!”
Ben has certainly had a difficult time when it comes to past injuries.
Last year, the star stepped back from hosting duties on GMB and Tipping Point to undergo surgery.
Ben needed the operation after injuring himself during a football match.
Following the operation, Ben shared: “So they’ve repaired the ACL and meniscus and now starts the rehab – very slow, long, rehab.
“Have to say, the painkillers seem to be doing the job right now!”
He also went into detail on how the injury came about.
“A few weeks ago you may remember I played in the veterans’ cup – my old boy’s league,” he said on GMB at the time.
“Without realising, I have ruptured my ACL, I’ve torn the meniscus and I’ve fractured part of my leg as well.”
Ben goes topless snap on social media
Meanwhile, it comes after Ben shared a topless video of himself on Instagram.
The clip showed the star running into the sea alongside two other people.
He captioned the shot: “Back to work tomorrow, was reminiscing about Christmas and I realised I didn’t post this!
“I’m not sure how yours was, but ours was v soggy, and that was before we went swimming.”
Ben’s co-stars went on to poke fun at the clip on GMB as he return to work.
Gushing over his “similarities” to Daniel Craig, Susanna Reid joked: “I mean frankly you can’t tell the difference between you both.”
