Good Morning Britain's Ben Shephard has returned to the show after his leg operation.

Earlier this month, the presenter revealed he had undergone surgery after rupturing his ACL, tearing his meniscus and fracturing his leg during a football match.

On Monday (July 19), Ben returned to the Good Morning Britain set alongside his co-host Susanna Reid for the first time post-surgery, with his leg supported by a chair under the desk.

Ben was welcomed back by Susanna, who noted he looked "slightly uncomfortable".

Explaining the contraption, Ben joked: "I just thought, I've been off for a few weeks, I'm going to start bringing in the changes.

"I feel like I should be able to do the show with my feet up."

Ben's Good Morning Britain return follows him undergoing a hospital stay after his surgery.

He said previously: "So they've repaired the ACL and the meniscus and now starts the rehab – very slow, long, rehab.
