Ben Shepherd has enjoyed a rare date night with his wife Annie while their two sons are away.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 43, said the date night was a “good excuse” for him and Annie to “remember what we talked about” before their boys were born.

Ben took to Instagram to share a sweet selfie of himself and Annie enjoying a walk along a river.

He captioned the post: “Cheeky night out with Mrs S, boys are away, so it was a good excuse to try and remember what we talked about before they arrived.

“Needless to say we got home early…. oh hold on that doesn’t sound quite right.”

Fans were thrilled by the post and gushed over the couple’s relationship.

One person said: “Such a lovely couple enjoy,” while another wrote: “Hope you had a great time Ben!”

“Love a date night,” a third commented. “Gorgeous pair!”

Ben’s GMB co-star Kate Garraway also commented on the snap, joking: “Presumably you talked about how you have managed to get away with punching above your weight for so long!!”

Ben rarely shares snaps with Annie but when he does, fans go wild.

Last summer, the star shared a selfie of him and Annie enjoying a night out together, in which they ended up helping pull a dog out of the river.

He captioned the post: “Sneaky night out with Mrs S view was surprisingly impressive – sunset wasn’t bad either! Just after this pic we had to pull a black lab out of the river who was struggling.

“The dog was jubilant once back on dry land, sadly Annie’s phone dropped into the river mid rescue. The owner had no idea!!”

Fans were left amused by Ben’s eventful date night.

Meanwhile, earlier this year, Ben opened up about his relationship with Annie and how waking up at 3am for Good Morning Britain has affected his personal life.

When asked if he’s ever too tired for a date night, Ben told The Mirror: “Even when I’m not working on a Saturday I’ll often wake up running around shouting ‘I’m late!’

“Annie has to grab me and shake me saying, ‘It’s the weekend!’.”

When asked what the couple do to relax, Ben added: “She loves gardening. Gardeners’ World is what she pines for…  I woo her with Monty Don-based produce.”
