Sonny admits to having a soft spot for Gemma Collins, once telling Now magazine: “I love that she’s from Essex and voluptuous. She’s got a great personality, too, which is what counts in a woman.

“She’d look after me and that’s what counts. But I think I also like it because my mum would hate it if I brought an older woman back. Gemma is more like my mum’s age.”

Sonny Jay used to ice skate once a month with his mates at a rink in Romford.
