Meanwhile, Jeremy himself previously told Loose Women: “I’m quite excited about being a grandad. My daughter said I should be ‘Grumps’!”

Jeremy is also dad to his three children with second wife Carla Germaine, Alice, 14, Ava, 12, and Henry, nine.

He proposed to girlfriend Vicky Burton during a romantic holiday in the Caribbean earlier this year.

But it didn’t go exactly to plan!

Appearing on Loose Women, he explained: “So, it was in the Caribbean and I’d been carrying the ring around in a dry bag for days.

“I thought, ‘This is the moment, on the boat to the island. It will be perfect!’

“Then it starts to rain and isn’t looking good. I think, I need to find somewhere to shelter and found somewhere I thought was exclusive looking but it was a shack, basically.”

“So I went down on one knee but there was glass on the floor,” he continued.

“I opened the ring and she said, ‘It’s upside down, will you just get up, I can’t even see the ring!”

“I tried to be romantic and failed miserably!”
