Another cheekily said: “What do you look like in budgies?”

“Shame we didn’t get to see the full video of you in your smugglers,” joked another.

A fourth posted: “What a great start to the day, Merry Christmas.”

Ben looked in great shape with a toned physique, as he likes to keep fit and regularly hits the gym.

He was recently forced to address claims disgraced MP-turned reality star Matt Hancock would be presenting on GMB.

“We know that he won’t stand in the next election.”

“There’s been pretty short odds that he’s going to be hosting Good Morning Britain in the near future.”

He added: “I’m intrigued to understand what Matt Hancock thinks is the opportunity…

“The transition from parliamentarian, from MP, from cabinet minister into a media life is not a simple transition just because he’s had a go on a reality TV show.”
