However, some people were quick to complain about Reuben drinking Coca-Cola.

Fans were quick to jump to Jack’s defence.

One person said: “Those of you complaining because his little boy’s holding a can of coke, behave you’ll make yourselves poorly letting it get to you, what is wrong with giving your kids some fizzy drink especially when on holiday, it’s a treat for crying out loud…”

Another commented: “Ignore some of [the] comments, boring people!!!” while a third added: “It’s a can of coke, what is the problem with giving your kids a proper fizzy drink now and then.”

Meanwhile, Jack is soaking up the sunshine in Greece and has been sharing photos from their family getaway.

Another shows Jack holding Reuben and Nyla up in the pool while a third sees Hanni falling off of a banana inflatable.

Jack captioned the post: “Fun and frolics all round. A completed day. Well done team!”

Last month, Jack and Hanni enjoyed a break in the Dominican Republic but they were left terrified when “quite a few people died” after some were “poisoned from minibars”.

He told The Sun: “I went to the Caribbean, to the Dominican Republic, it was really nice but while we were over there quite a few people died.

“There were a lot of people whose drinks were all poisoned from minibars. A few British and they died. Nowhere near where I was, but it was a bit hairy, but I survived and we came back.”

The FBI had launched a poisoning probe amid concerns victims may have drunk alcohol which was contaminated with methanol or insecticide.
