He then gave fans a sneak peek at the menu – prawns in garlic as a starter and a mouth-watering roast with a side of potatoes and greens as the main dish.

It’s no surprise that Gary chose prawns. Speaking to HELLO! earlier this month he confessed it's his signature dish.

Gary cooked his signature dish for his sons and special guest

"Particularly in lockdown, I have also found a love for healthy cooking. My signature dish is gambas al ajillo – prawn in garlic, something I fell in love with during my time playing for Barcelona," he revealed.

His sons would have no doubt loved his cooking – as well as his special guest, who ended up being German professional football manager and former player Jurgen Klinsmann.

The father-of-four posed with his guest in a picture shared on his Stories. The snap sees Gary and Jurgen standing next to each other whilst surrounded by Gary's four sons: George, 29, Harry, 27, Tobias, 25, and Angus, 23.

The presenter is incredibly close to his sons – so much that they were part of the decision of him quitting BT Sports after six years.

Speaking to HELLO! he explained: "My decision to quit BT Sports after six years was something I didn't take lightly. With lots of time to think about what's most important in lockdown, spending time with family is what means most to me now, so not taking on as much in my professional life and freeing up time to see my kids is something I'll do more of in the future for sure."

On how he will utilise his spare time, he added: "I've made no secret of my ambition to follow Leicester City on their European travels next season and I hope to be able to take my four sons with me on this adventure – which I know won't be cheap!"
