Gordon and his wife Tana, who have been married since 1996, are doting parents to five children – Megan, 22, twins Holly and Jack, 20, Matilda, 18, and little Oscar, one.

Gordon will no doubt be feeling emotional as he has previously admitted to being a "mess" when his twins Jack and Holly left the family home for university back in 2018.

Speaking of the moment he dropped them off at their university halls of residence during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, the doting dad said: "Tilly, Tana and myself took Jack down to the college last week. Man that was hard. We put him in his little room, left him some fettucine and pasta for him to cook, student food.

"Left him there and I got in the car and I was a mess. My best mate has just left me. And then the next day we put Holly into University. I was like, 'Man this is tough!'" As to what he'll do when 16-year-old Tilly also leaves home? I'll cry."
