Speaking to, the Tipping Point presenter said: "My leg is alright, it’s 80 percent."

He joked: "Not up to Strictly that’s for sure."

It comes after Ben appeared to make an I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! slip-up live on air.

Andi Peters revealed on GMB that he'll be making his way to the famous Australian jungle for journalistic purposes to report what will be taking place in the camp.

However, when Ben told ITV viewers that Andi will be making his way "into the jungle" Andi quickly piped up to correct him.

Before leaving the studio, Andi said: "Stop saying it like that Ben, I'm going to the jungle not into the jungle," he then added "for journalistic reasons".

"And now I'm going to breakfast, alright."

But this wasn't the only time Andi took a swipe at Ben on the breakfast programme.

Joking that he would take over the show alongside co-star Vic Hope, Ben chimed: "Everyday an audition, Andi."

Andi replied: "Well, you've survived every audition!"

Appearing red faced, Ben told Andi to get on with the competition as he tried to brush the awkward situation off.

Although they laughed it off several times, the awkward exchanges between the two men did no go unnoticed by viewers at home.

Taking to Twitter, one viewer wrote: "Getting bad vibes from Ben Shepherd towards Andi Peters."

Another chimed: "Oh for Gods sake , stop all that sycophantic fake giggling. Nobody’s falling for it any more."

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am
