In a new interview, GMB and Tipping Point star Ben has opened up about the abuse he receives on social media.

The presenter said that people would be “amazed” at the vile comments he’s subjected to online.

The abuse has got so bad that he changed his settings to filter it out.

Ben opened up about the abuse in a new interview with OK! magazine.

“Social media can be an incredibly important tool for debate but what I don’t need is the mindless horrific vile abuse from people,” he said.

“You’d be amazed – people just want to get a reaction out of me, so I’ve changed my settings on my social media. I just want to be drawn to positivity and optimism and hope,” he added.

Ben then went on to say that he’s his own worst critic as it is.

He then went on to speak about how he lost his first job at Channel 4 back in the 1990s.

He described his firing as “brutal”.

Despite going on to establish a career with ITV, hosting GMB, Tipping Point, and Ninja Warrior, Ben admitted that he still doubts his abilities.

“I still constantly question if I’m good enough. I’m always trying to improve – that’s one of the brilliant things working alongside Susanna ReidKate Garraway and Ranvir [Singh], and Charlotte [Hawkins] – I feel like I’m learning all the time. Nobody is more critical of me than I am of myself,” he said.

In a new interview, the 51-year-old confessed that she has a crush on her co-presenter.

She made the surprising admission during a chat with OK! recently.

“Nobody has to whisper about their crush on Ben like they have to whisper about their crush on Matt Hancock,” she said.

“Apparently people do [fancy Hancock] but that’s for them!” she continued.

“Ben lifts my spirits, whenever I’m weary he makes everything better,” she added.

In the same interview, Ben went on to praise Susanna, describing her as an “incredible journalist”. He also confessed that he can never beat her in an argument.
