Out of all their children, it seems Buddy is showing an interest in his dad's profession, learning those key culinary skills at an early age. In a previous interview with HELLO!, the doting dad-of-five opened up about his boy's love of cooking. "He feels that cooking starts with potions," he joked.

"The potions that he makes ends up with a massive cauldron in the garden with mud and all kinds of horrible stuff mixed with stuff that I don't want to talk about." Jamie continued: "He goes off and steals some of my most expensive ingredients and he's just glugging it all in."
