The TV presenter, who could be seen in his hospital gown as he said: “I have to say though, the painkillers seem to be doing the job right now.”
Ben previously revealed the “dramatic” moment he severed nerves in his leg playing football – and kept going for 25 minutes.

“We won the cup final, but I started with two legs and ended with one.
“Without realising, I have ruptured my ACL, torn the meniscus and fractured part of my leg as well.
“Interestingly, I didn’t realise I’d done it quite so bad. I kept playing for 20 or 25 minutes before I thought, ‘it feels a little bit unstable, maybe I should stop’.
“It turns out I’d severed all the nerves, which is why I couldn’t feel any pain, so just sort of carried on playing.”
