Good Morning Britain’s Ben Shephard shows off incredible Christmas tree transformation in his huge Essex home
BEN Shephard put his family to work as they all came together to decorate their huge Christmas tree.
The Good Morning Britain host, 45, boasted about his decade-old tree as he shared a time-lapse video of his family working hard to make it look as festive as possible.
Posted to Instagram, the video showed the big effort it took to decorate the tall tree with baubles and lights.
Ben set the tree up by the kitchen table in his large Essex home and laid out the gorgeous decorations, alongside cute red and white stockings.
As his kids – Jack and Sam – worked hard to put the decorations up, Ben could be seen wrapping some big presents in blue wrapping paper.
He credited his wife, Annie Perks, with also helping to make the tree look fantastic.
Ben captioned the video: “It’s done! 😅 We’ve had this tree 10 years and it’s still doing the job – most importantly it doesn’t drop needles!!”
“Think @mrsannieshephard has done a great job, as ever ably distracted by me and the boy. 😜 Right now for the eggnog!!!”
Ben was probably inspired to get into the festive spirit after he and GMB co-host Kate Garraway were left in hysterics over a Belgian city’s penis-shaped Christmas lights.
Oudenburg’s festive decorations have made headlines for all the wrong reasons and even prompted an apology from its mayor.
But the rude light display has made many people smile, and they have a fan in GMB’s Richard Arnold.
Today he said: “I may be strangely drawn to it actually, for obvious reasons.”
He then joked: “If you do see that waking up this morning boys, I can give you Dr Hilary’s number.”
