Joe said: “My eldest Harry is really keen on acting and performing, he is also interested in the other side of TV – behind the camera.

“The others are too young, so I’m not sure what they’ll be doing. As parents we can only support them, we can’t steer their direction, we’ll let them find their feet and support them in whatever they want to do.

“I’d also love to do some more acting this year as well.”

Joe then revealed he would go back to EastEnders.
