Ben Shephard leaves co-host Susanna Reid red faced on Good Morning Britain as he suggests David Gray's 'tackle is bigger' than his
He's becoming a fan of an innuendo on live TV.
And now Ben Shephard was left hilariously red faced after he cheekily told singer David Gray he had the 'bigger tackle' between the pair.
The TV presenter made the awkward blunder on Thursday's Good Morning Britain as he and co-host Susanna Reid interviewed the famed Sail Away hitmaker, discussing their shared love of football.

Presenter Susanna revealed at the beginning of the interview that Ben and David have a lot in common, having participated in Unicef's first ever Soccer Aid a decade ago in 2006.
Harmlessly, the brunette beauty asked if her co-host Ben had ever taken the 48-year-old music star down on the football pitch with one of his 'legendary' tackles.
She said: 'We've got more with you after the break, including the fact you and Ben Shephard have shared a dressing room and been on the football pitch together.
'Has he tackled you with one of his legendary take downs?'

David coyly answered: 'He's a mighty player but he met his match.'

This isn't the first time Ben was caught up in an awkward gaffe after he was left doubled over with laughter after Holly Willoughby got completely and utterly tongue tied when reminiscing about welly wanging, the sport of throwing a welly, on This Morning in October.
Making the ultimate gaffe, Holly originally meant to say she hadn't played the activity since - but it appeared the sport got her thinking of something rather x-rated.
She declared: 'Funnily enough, I've never w***y wanged since then.'
