Meanwhile, over the past few months, David and his wife Victoria as well as their three youngest children Harper, Romeo and Cruz have been self-isolating at their beautiful Cotswolds home. They have been regularly sharing glimpses of their country walks and outdoor lifestyle.

Earlier this week, David unveiled his latest home DIY project - in which he has been building beehives to make honey! When he first announced the venture at the family's country home, his wife Victoria posted a video of him hard at work and said, "David decided to start building beehives. Is that your new project darling?"

To which David replied: "You'll be very happy when we have our own honey." It comes as no surprise that the idea has already started to attract wildlife, since their home in the Cotswolds is surrounded by two acres of land and has its very own apple orchard.
