Ben Shephard returns to Good Morning Britain for first time in two months as he finishes filming new Tipping Point

BEN Shephard returned to Good Morning Britain today for the first time in two months after he finished filming a new series of Tipping Point.

The 45-year-old had to take time off the daytime TV programme back in August to shoot series 11 of his popular game show.

But with the episodes in the can, Ben reunited with Susanna Reid in the GMB studio.

She greeted him warmly, saying: "Welcome back to the programme."

A smiling Ben said: "It's nice to be back."

"It's a wrap on Tipping Point," said Susanna.

Her co-star told how yesterday he shared a snap from the new look socially distanced studio set.

In the grinning snap, fans of the show got a glimpse of host Ben's counter console as well as four beaming contestants.

So today we completed series 11 of @itvtippingpoint and these are the brilliant constants we had for episode 165!!! (Plus our floor manager Eddie doing a star jump in the background 🤣👌) It has been an immense undertaking for the entire team to put this series together, not to mention the 660 plus contestants who have taken part. We have filmed 165 eps including tons of jackpots, lots of trades, some heart breaking losses a “double double drop” (what even is that!?!?!) ANOTHER DOUBLE JACKPOT WIN 💰💰🎉🍾🍾and maybe my favorite wrong answer of all time #Agathachristie (when it airs you’ll know why!) 😳🤣🤣🤣 I honestly can’t thank the team enough for all their hard work, they have made the seemingly impossible possible – all during a global pandemic, oh and they’ve put up with me too which is no mean feat!! The only thing missing has been the #benhugs but I’m saving them up and they will return!! I can’t wait for you to see them #tippingpoint

Calling it an "immense undertaking" Ben explained how the series features more than 660 contestants and includes "tons of jackpots" and a "double jackpot" but also "heartbreaking losses".

He continued: "I honestly can’t thank the team enough for all their hard work, they have made the seemingly impossible possible – all during a global pandemic, oh and they’ve put up with me too which is no mean feat!!
