Afterwards, during the competition segment, Andi joked about getting him a present as he confirmed 'it is Ben's last day tomorrow.'

It comes after Ben paid an emotional tribute to Good Morning Britain co-host and 'on-screen wife of 20-years' Kate.

The Tipping Point host said no longer presenting alongside pal Kate was the 'hardest decision' ahead of agreeing to take on the role of Phillip Schofield's replacement.

The telly favourite, who has hosted GMB since 2014, also revealed that the adjoining studios would make it easy for him to call in for a catch up.

Saying: 'One of the hardest decisions of course is knowing that my mornings with Kate, my on-screen wife of nearly 20 years, is coming to an end'.

Touching on her recent loss of beloved husband Derek Draper Ben continued: 'Her journey has been well documented, and I think we would all agree how remarkable she has been over the last four years'.

'I won’t miss the mess but I’ve learned so much from her, as I have from all of the people I’ve been lucky enough to work alongside'.

Following the news Kate took to Instagram to congratulate Ben and Cat, while admitting just how much she would miss working with him.
