Her new TV husband Ben Shephard

Ben Shephard joined Susanna on the show in 2014 and, like her, has remained as a presenter on GMB ever since.

The 46-year-old Tipping Point star’s career took off back in 1998 when he started presenting The Bigger Breakfast on Channel 4.

Ben went on to serve as a regular This Morning presenter up to 2014, when he took the Good Morning Britain job.
