"I think like every other person's Christmas - it will be very normal," he laughed. "We open presents, we enjoy ourselves, we have a traditional Christmas dinner. So we're exactly the same."

The former England captain has a conventional outlook on the special day, insisting it's best to be at home with family. "We always spend Christmas in London because it's home and all our family are here, so we're very traditional," he said.

The happy couple, who have been married 16 years, are known to treat each other to lavish gifts but when asked if Victoria was hard to shop for, the 40-year-old gave a surprising answer.

David and Olive are getting ready for the festive season

"She's not actually. I think when you've been with someone for so long, people do say that. They turn round and say "It must be so difficult to buy for Victoria" because she has a lot of things you'd think about going to buy for your wife or your girlfriend.

"But actually, I know her so well and I know the simple things she likes and enjoys, so she's okay to buy for," he shared.
