Ben, 45, shared a rare photo of his wife, Annie, with his 389,000 followers on his official Instagram page yesterday.
The television star seemed to frustrate his other half by taking selfies with her while she was wearing no makeup.
Posting the snap on Instagram on Wednesday evening, Ben joked that he had cheered his wife up by heading home from their romantic stroll to watch the football following its return since the coronavirus shut-down in March.
Captioning the image, Ben wrote: “Early evening Pre-kick-off promenade with my hairdresser who’s not happy with my selfies apparently she’s not got make up on…
“I didn’t like to say I hadn’t noticed!! Anyway back in time for the footy which has cheered her up no end.”
In the post, Ben was referring to the lockdown haircut Annie gave him last week.
Taking to the photo-sharing site to share a video of his new look, the TV personality unveiled his trimmed down hair.
“I’ve got a bucket of coffee that I’m slowly going to make my way through to try and wake myself up,” he joked.
“Mrs S has had another go at the old barnet, a couple of holes here and there.”
Looking unsure, he then quipped: “But she’s getting better, isn’t she?”
Susanna, 49, brought up Ben and Annie’s selfie on the Thursday edition of Good Morning Britain.
She said: “You shared a photo of Annie on your walk and she wasn’t happy because she didn’t have any makeup on.”
Ben joked: “She’s not best pleased. Minging.”
Susanna quipped: “You what?”
Ben laughed off his cheeky comment and continued to discuss the return of the beautiful game.
Ben and Annie have been married since 2004 and tend to keep their relationship private.
They have two sons called Jack and Sam, and Ben often shares sweet family insights into their life at home.
The Tipping Point presenter announced last summer that he was going to be stepping down from his Goals on Sunday presenting duties – after a whopping nine years – in order to spend more time with his children.
He told The Mirror. “Now they’re teenagers, Sam is taller than me and Jack is not far behind, which I’m trying to come to terms with.
“They’re consumed by schoolwork all week, the weekend is the only time I can spend with them.
“What tends to happen is that after doing the breakfast show on Thursdays and Fridays, Saturday comes and I’m shattered.
“Doing Goals on Sunday has been amazing, but I can see that not only will we all benefit as a family but I’ll benefit too from being more involved in their weekend life.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am
