Following the birth of Emilia two years ago, Eamonn revealed that his granddaughter had been born at 7 lbs 6 oz and added: "So that's the first grandchild, my mother's a great-grandmother."

He went on to joke: “It surprises people because they think, 'He's too young to be a grandfather' and already I've got people getting in touch with me about glamorous granddad competitions and that kind of thing.

“But my friend Bill, he's anointed himself 'Papa'.”
