Supportive: Susana, 50, told GMB viewers this morning about Ben's injury, adding 'lots of love to you Ben, get well soon'
'He watches us still from the hospital bed and I am sure he will be watching the game from there this evening. Lots of love to you Ben, get well soon.'
Last month, Ben revealed he had suffered the horrific leg injury while playing football - but nerve damage meant he didn't feel any pain.
He said: 'Interestingly, I didn't realise I had done it quite so badly. I carried on playing for 25 minutes before I thought, 'it feels a little bit unstable, perhaps I should stop.'
'It turns out I had severed all the nerves which is why I couldn't feel any pain, and just carried on playing.'
Before Tuesday's surgery, Ben captured his injured limb and wrote: 'Op happens today! so far so good - arrow on the correct leg @andipeters on the tv + super stylish socks in place.' [sic]Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
