But on Friday, the star, who is celebrating his 27th birthday, shared a beautiful picture of his young son and also revealed his name, Jimmy. Pete shared a photo from his bathroom with Jimmy appearing to have a small cry, although he looked adorable in a lion onesie, and the birthday boy looked thrilled in the photo.

The star shared the news of his son's birth at the National Television Awards after the show scooped the award for Best Factual Show.

"It's a bit overwhelming, got it all going on at the moment!", he explained to press, adding: "I've been up all night, I slept on the train here - got suitcases under my eyes, you just got me at a good time now."
