Ben Fordham isn’t known for breaking the rules.

The 42-year-old just could not help himself and one day attempted the show’s course – something he’d been told not to do.

‘I was told not to but I had a go when I thought nobody was watching,’ Ben told the new issue of TV Week. 

‘I took some kids along to have a look behind the scenes and it was during the afternoon, so I didn’t think anybody was watching. I pulled the covers off and started to run up it [the Warped Wall],’ he added. 

Ben explained that producers ‘pulled him aside’ to have a word after the incident – the TV star having no idea that he could be seen on camera.

Ben then admitted that he ‘didn’t get anywhere near the top’ of the Warped Wall obstacle.  

It comes after Ben told Talking Honey he tries his best to avoid swearing at all times, especially around children.

The star also revealed the one swear word that he refuses to use, as the panel discussed whether swearing had become socially acceptable. 

‘There’s one word that I’ll never say, which is the C-word,’ Ben said.

‘I just don’t go there. In fact, I was once accused by a colleague of describing him using that word while he wasn’t around and the reaction from everyone was, “hang on, he never says that.”

‘And I was like, “yes, it’s finally paid off!”

Observations: Ben said how when he's around the boys, 'the F-bomb gets dropped more'
