Fresh from winning the show, he gushed over Sandra once again, confessing: ‘She’s my life. We’re 54 years. Four years going out. Only just 17 when we started going out and we’ve never been apart. I don’t care what people think, I love her like mad. 

‘(Son) Jamie always says to me, “dad, how did you pull her? You punched so hard above your weight its scary” and he’s not wrong.

‘We just get on so well together. I love being with her every day. love being in her company. Couldn’t have a row with her if you tried. She’s so placid and so easy going. I’m very lucky’.
