Beginning the video with the camera pointing at his feet, the 52-year-old said: "Now sometimes I like staying in my hotel because I like staying in exactly the same room. Whenever my hotel sometimes says: "Jay, why don't you try another room?' and 'I'm like, 'I don't want to do that because I'm a stickler for having everything exactly the same.'

Jay gave his followers a 'behind-the-scenes' look at his hotel room

"But, they showed me this room and I said, 'Ok, this isn't bad," he added as he began giving his followers a tour of his glamorous room which boasted a huge living area decorated with a floral, gold-framed painting and a sculpture of Queen Victoria's head

The room also flaunted beautiful oak furniture, a stained glass window, tall ceilings and glass walls surrounding the shower and king-sized bed. 

Moving towards the door, Jay added: "What I do want to show you is this," he said while panning the camera to show an incredible reception room with marble flooring, a circular glass ceiling and marble columns.
