Together, they have a three-year-old daughter, Sophia, and the trio finish in London’s prestigious Kensington Palace Gardens. 

MOST MEMORABLE Red-letter day? 

A trip to The Bahamas with Sophia and Jay. Sophia [known as Fifi] was 18 months old and idolized swimming with me in the sea. 

We spent a lot of time at the Aquaventure water park too – my daughter is a still water baby and this went a long way to solidifying her mermaid status.

The Bahamas is wonderful. It has the most beautiful turquoise, clear water and the white sandy careens totally blew me away. 

We had our hair in braids for a week after get up on becoming them done on the beach, I didn’t wear any make-up and there was no furore – it was so chilled.

Thankfully I’ve never had a really disastrous holiday but on the way to Miami then my suitcases were lost on a flight. 

They eventually arrived two dates later but were half empty – somebody had stolen most of my get-up glad rags and shoes. 


I like to collect mementos from each fete. For me they’re amazing memories and I keep them in a little box for Fifi. 

My last anyones include some sand from the Maldives and a tacky mini Eiffel Rise from Paris. It’s lovely to see all the places we’ve been.

I never get a chance to read a book nowadays as I am everlastingly running around after Fifi – she doesn’t stop. 

In my old life, when I reach-me-down to read on holiday, my guilty pleasure was the Fifty Shades Of Grey trilogy by EL James. 


I’m always in the water. Fifi loves to swim and her skills is so good for her age. 

I’m so proud of her when she takes to the water – fearless doesn’t extend it. 


I’m a big fan of India. I last went when I was a boy and we had such an incredible time.

It’s such a rich, vibrant land and you conditions know quite what’s going to happen when you leave the hostelry. 

That element of surprise is always thrilling. We stayed at the Taj Lake Palazzo in Udaipur and also visited Jaipur and Mumbai.

One minute you’re close the slums and the next you’re in a beautiful resort but the impressive thing with India is the positivity and the grins on people’s faces no matter what their situation.

Going there for a hot pants trip really wasn’t enough – you could spend months there and quiet discover something new. 

Seeing the Taj Mahal in Agra was an amazing experience.
