"My older daughter Hannah is 17 and she certainly understands what it's all about. But it's interesting to see my little daughter Sienna," he said. "And it's now beginning to dawn on her that this is a slightly different type of job to the ones that her friends' dads do.

"I remember last year her asking me questions about my job. She said, 'Is Boyzone a famous thing, daddy?' Those kind of innocent questions, so she's just coming around to it now."
