Ben Shephard badly hurts leg in football game

OHMYGOSSIP — Ben Shephard suffered a horrific leg injury during a game of football – but nerve damage meant he didn’t feel any pain.
The 46-year-old presenter fractured his leg, tore his meniscus and ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) but carried on playing the match as he didn’t realise how badly he’d been hurt.
Opening Thursday’s (24.06.21) episode of ‘Good Morning Britain’, co-host Susanna Reid said: “I wish I had taken a photograph in my dressing room this morning, because Ben came in with quite the get up on your leg. You had a sort of holding device?”
Ben clarified: “Quite the outfit, yep. A brace.
“A few weeks to go, you may remember I played in the Cup Final of the Arthur Dunn veterans cup, my old boys team.
“We won the Cup Final, but I started with two legs and ended with one.
“Without realising, I have ruptured my ACL, I’ve torn the meniscus and I’ve fractured part of my leg as well.”
The show’s medical expert, Dr. Hilary Jones, said Ben had suffered a “nasty injury” but laughed off Susanna’s question as to whether he’d “prescribed the brace”.
He replied: “No, but I approved of it! It’s not a great look, let’s be honest.”
Joining in with the light teasing, Ben laughed: “It looks a bit Robocop-esque.”
The presenter then recalled how not only did the injury not stop him playing, but it didn’t make his game any worse.
He added: “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.”
Hilary clarified: “Basically, this is the ligament that holds the lower leg on to the upper leg, so it’s very dramatic!”
Ben replied: “It was flapping about a bit! The sad thing is it didn’t affect my standard of football!”
