GMB presenter Ben Shephard dons tiny gold shorts live on air!

The heatwave is prompting some unusual fashion choices for some TV stars. Check out Good Morning Britain presenter Ben Shephard in tight, gold shorts!

As the summer weather in Britain continues to hot up to record-breaking highs, Good Morning Britain presenter Ben Shephard found an interesting way to keep cool in the studio, by wearing super-tight gold shorts live on air on today’s programme!

But Ben’s co-presenter Kate Garraway and Love Island guests Ellie Brown, Charlie Brake, Stephanie Lam and Josh Mair couldn’t quite keep their cool at the site of Ben in his gold shorts, along with his shirt, tie, jacket and West Ham socks pulled-up over his ankles.

And there was no hope for anyone in the studio or viewers watching at home once Ben started twerking towards the camera to show off his metallic wear!

“I feel like Goldmember”, Ben cheekily declared, referring to the Austin Powers villain, as co-host Kate and the reality TV stars fell about in fits of giggles.

GMB presenter Charlotte Hawkins shared a snap on Twitter of Shephard with his leg up on the chair while reading his notes.

She joked: “So the overwhelming majority of you this morning voted for @benshephard to wear these on @GMB… good work everyone!”

Ben and his co-hosts had been discussing whether it was acceptable for men to wear shorts to work in the heatwave and, for fun, viewers had voted in a poll that declared Ben would have to wear the gold pair on the programme.

Fans were highly amused by the unlikely fashion show, with many commenting on Ben’s legs, and others saying they are glad he wore the shorts rather than GMB presenter Piers Morgan.
