In view of his 473,000 followers, the star shared the stomach-churning picture of his son mid-leap before crashing into the water.

Ben wrote: “It’s a bit of a rite of passage in our family jumping off the gut at Port Gaverne and this year Jack followed his big brother off the top and nailed it!!”

The ITV star revealed that despite Jack loving the jump, his mother wasn’t as pleased.

He continued: “It might be that his bro was the perfect marker buoy/target that got him over the edge, as you can imagine he was buzzing all day afterwards – as for his mum she wasn’t quite so thrilled.”

Another commented: “Brave of him. Or mad. I could never do that.”

“Absolutely no way,” added another social media user.

Months ago the star opened up on how his children have found the past year.

Speaking on GMB, Ben paid tribute to his personal heroes: “I think it has to go to the boys, Sam and Jack, I just think they’ve been extraordinary.

“I think – undoubtedly there will be people at home who have got kids that are having to home school…”

“The resilience they’ve both shown… Sam’s doing his GCSEs – or is supposed to be doing his GCSEs this year – Jack has adapted brilliantly.

“I’ve got so much admiration for how they’ve gone about it,” he added.

Ben continued: “They’ve kept their spirits up, got on brilliantly, we’ve had a really good laugh.”
