In the caption, the 46-year-old TV star joked that his little boy, who turned two in December, appeared to look like former US President Donald Trump with his blonde quiff.

"Fear not people of America. We've found you a presidential replacement complete with turbo quiff," he teased. "Although less than two years old I'm confident his policies and demeanour will be a vast improvement - as long as there’s plenty of snacks! #pointymanforpresident #uspresident."

Opening up about the guilt he feels when leaving his wife at home with their children, he told fans: "25 hours of travelling to get back to the family for a couple of days.

"Workdays are full-on but if I'm honest it relieves the guilt I feel from leaving their mum on her own to hold the fort…. Plus times with this fella are rarely anything but good ones."
