It appeared to be Dan's son Joe wearing the unusual accessory, although it was so large that it wasn't entirely possible to tell.

One of Dan's daughters sat in the background with her feet up during the video, which the BBC Breakfast presenter captioned: "You buy your kids  expensive toys and then…" The down-to-earth star finished with three crying-laughing emojis.

Taking to his Instagram Stories, the star shared a series of amazing snapshots of iconic landmarks including the Colosseum, the Vatican and the Trevi Fountain.

"Rome is officially a lovely place to visit," he remarked, later adding: "Perfect family half-term escape."

The devoted family man later wrote on the social media site: "Well… we've had a lovely little family trip to Rome during half-term. I've been there covering sporting events before but never had a good look around. It's basically like a giant museum!"
