Sharing a couple of snaps on the social media site, including one of him behind the mic, he said: "Those of you that know me or have watched me reintroduce myself back into football over the last two seasons will know that I've travelled a lot of miles, learnt from a ton of mistakes and dedicated a lot of time to at least appear like I know what I'm talking about."

Jeff, whose ex is late reality star Jade Goody, continued in the caption: "Today was my fifth appearance on @talksport but my first time hosting and I'm grateful for the opportunity and proud of the progress.

I've travelled a lot of miles, learnt from a ton of mistakes.

"Still much to learn but I'm loving every minute."

His friends and fans congratulated him in the comments, as one wrote, "You're doing great" alongside a thumbs-up emoji.

Someone else commented: "Good for you, Jeff. Whether you're winging it or owning it, carry on enjoying it. May have to tune in one day."

A third said: "Well done, Jeff. Enjoy."

"Solid again mate. Grassroots [football] stuff was [great]," wrote a fourth.

It follows reports that Jeff and his wife, Kate Dwyer, have been experiencing marriage problems just one year after tying the knot.

The couple got married in September last year in Portugal and their special day was exclusively covered by Hello! Magazine.

But recently, fans noticed that the pair had unfollowed each other on Instagram. In response, Jeff's rep revealed the couple have had "some difficulties" and are "doing their utmost to work through them together".
