Ben Shephard: GMB host’s ‘agony’ in recovery update after surgery left him hospitalised
Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard has updated his fans on his health following his surgery on his leg which he admitted was going to be a “long and slow recovery”. The ITV host had to have an operation after he badly severed the nerves during a football game.
The 46-year-old underwent ACL reconstruction surgery on his right leg and was forced to have an operation over a week ago.
The broadcaster gave an update of his progress from his home where he could be seen with his leg attached to a machine.
Speaking to the camera, he gestured to a Physiolab machine around his knee, with his leg propped up on a table covered in a support.
In view of his 474,000 followers, Ben began: “Hello everybody. Just wanted to give an update on how I’m getting on with my physio.

In a lengthy Instagram caption, he penned: “If you didn’t know I essentially b**gered up my right knee playing football- (that’s the technical term) a few months ago. I’m about 11/12 days post-op now.
“I can’t thank you all enough for the messages you’ve sent, asking how I am and wishing me well. I’m sorry I can’t respond to them all, but I do try and read as many as possible.
“There’s lots of you going through similar, or waiting for ops, and some great advice from those who’ve been through ACL surgery too. Thank you for every single one!”
He added: “Physio has begun with @symmetryperformance Mo, my Physio, got me through about 5 @socceraid matches over the years, so he knows how broken I am everywhere, he’s certainly got his work cut out!
