He elsewhere spoke about how Linda has been offered so many deals with him which they’ve had to turn down.

‘We’ve been offered hundreds of things. We got asked to do a travel show and the chance to go here and go there. It would be hilarious, but she’s just not well enough to do it,’ he told .

‘Gogglebox is enough for us. She feels comfortable doing that show ­because we’re just sat in my kitchen.’
