Posting a series of old snaps, Wayne wrote, with a heart emoji and the hashtags #family and #brothers: “Happy 60th birthday big bro… I will always be proud of you. Love you lots.”

In 2016, Wayne claimed to have drifted apart from Gary after the pundit‘s marriage in 2009 to second wife Danielle Bux.

He told The Sun: “In my opinion Danielle cost me my relationship with my brother. Sadly Gary is no longer part of my life.”

Happy 60th birthday big bro… I will always be proud of you. Love you lots.

Wayne said the two of them struggled to bond with Danielle on the scene.

Speaking to the newspaper, he said: “They came to Ibiza in August 2008 and it was really awkward. I didn’t spark with Danielle and our relationship was cold.”

Wayne wasn’t invited to their wedding, as he claimed Ana Tanaka – his model girlfriend at the time – didn’t receive an invite.

“Breakup statements can seem impersonal because there is no way to put into words what two people experience together over the years.

“We have had the most amazing, loving and meaningful relationship and [it] has been the best four years, but it has come to a point in both of [our] lives where this is the best option for us and [we] have come to this mutual decision due to circumstances out of our control.”
