Another hilariously added: "Lovely picture of you guys. Your dad is all that and a bag of chips!!"

Jamie is really close to his parents, dad Trevor and mum Sally, and in the past has praised them for their work ethic, which he says he has inherited from them.

"My dad put me to work in the [family] pub as a young kid to earn pocket money, a pound an hour," he told The Guardian back in 2013.

"My parents had a really strong work ethic that they've passed on to me. When I tried to sleep in, my dad would aim the hose at my bedroom window to wake me up at the crack of dawn."

Of their personalities, he added: "My mum is funny, bright, full of energy, a bit all over the place, a great mum. My dad was always the stricter parent, but I always felt that he loved me.

"The only time he ever gave me a hiding was when I left off stink bombs in the pub on a Saturday night and about 30 people left without paying. I deserved it, but my dad felt so guilty after that he bought me a fish tank."
