He told The Sun at the time: "My dad is not well at the moment so he is having to mind himself but even though he’s not well, my dad would still get up and go to work.

“He would still get up and get showered and dressed and go work against the advice of his doctor or his family. But that’s just the way my dad is. He likes to stay busy and active as he hasn’t been well.

“Before the pandemic he was stuck at home for a few weeks and with the extra weeks of the pandemic he is starting to go stir crazy.

“I think he is looking forward to getting out of the house and go for a walk, you know. He has been telling me for years he is 69 so I don’t think he’s telling me the truth any more. He’s definitely past 70.”
