Encouraged by co-host Alex Jones, who was pregnant with daughter Annie at the time, Jermaine said: “I have a baby on the way, and it’s a boy! Very excited in our house.”

He later laughed: “The four-year-old’s not took it too well though if I’m honest with you.

“The eight-year-old is already practicing, the four-year-old just put a face on her like, ‘I’m the baby in the house, let’s not be doing this’.”

“It was love at first sight when I saw her, but not for her,” he told Belfast Telegraph. “She wasn’t impressed by this cheeky, cocky guy who thought she’d be bowled over when I drove up in my Ferrari. She actually made me get rid of the car because it was too noisy!

“She’s told me she thought when we first met that I was a bit of an over-confident idiot, but I won her over finally.

“She’s down-to-earth, not interested in football and was never impressed by any of the flashiness of it. She stabilised me, calmed me down, helped me grow up and mellow, and was totally supportive when everything was going downhill through my injuries.”
