Ben Shepherd and Kate Garraway had quite the laugh on Monday morning’s Good Morning Britain, which led to the presenter hailing his on-air partnership with his pal. As the UK gears up for the new face mask regulations coming into place this Friday, everyone has been trying to nab face coverings and some are more bizarre than others.

Great to be with @kategarraway again this morning – you never know what’s going to happen!!

While many have opted for throw away blue medical ones, others have chosen handmade cotton, with patterns imprinted on them.

Ben and Kate on the other hand, were gifted masks that were even more personalised than ever.

Taking to Instagram after the show had wrapped, Ben posted a montage of snaps he and his co-star had taken on the ITV set.

“These aren’t weird at all,” he wrote, alongside three images of the presenters wearing masks with their own faces on them.

“The no face mask, face mask!! A screen print of your mouth and nose, on the face mask??!?!

“Certainly made us smile. Great to be with @kategarraway again this morning – you never know what’s going to happen!!

“Is it me or do we actually look like a #spittingimage puppets???”

It didn’t take long before fans rushed to the comment section to share their thoughts on the masks that would definitely make you look twice in the street.

“Amazing. Wonder if I could wear one at work in the operating theatres,” one joked.

“You have never looked so handsome,” another added, poking fun of the fact Ben’s mask made his face look squashed.

A third agreed: “Looks like Ben has been in a fight!”

Someone else described the novelty as “trippy” while others commented on how “clever” the idea was.

But most of all, fans were happy to see the duo back together again properly.

Kate has been absent from the show for three months after her husband Derek, was rushed to hospital back in March after contracting coronavirus.

The author was admitted into intensive care and put into an induced coma and his condition was labelled as “critically ill”.

But after sharing Ben’s post to her own Instagram page yesterday evening, Kate revealed she would hopefully be giving an update on Derek’s condition this morning.

“So looking forward to seeing you all on @gmb tomorrow morning (we’ll lose the weird face masks don’t worry),” she wrote.

“After at emotional few days hopefully will have an update for you on Derek. See you at 6 a.m with @benshephardofficial.”

Kate and their two young children Darcey and William, have been congratulating the NHS with weekly claps to show their support for the doctors and nurses keeping Derek alive as they continue to put on brave faces despite the devastating situation.

But to everyone’s relief, she announced he is COVID-19 free and has woken up from the coma, although he still has a long way to go.

The lengthy battle has left him with diabetes and with “clots in his lungs” and “holes in his heart”.

During an interview with GMB ahead of her debut comeback, Kate shared her hopes on the show about visiting her husband soon.

They had not been able to see him properly due to social distancing and lockdown restrictions and instead spoke to Derek over the phone and via video calls.

Fingers crossed she has some good news for her family and fans this morning.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
