The 61-year-old once admitted “trying every drug around” but now uses testosterone gel to boost libido and energy.

He added: “I forgot to put on my testosterone gel, and as any woman who's gone through the menopause will know, if you forget your stuff you go absolutely mental.

"I can’t leave the house, I can’t make eye contact.”
