The former Sky Sports presenter openly discussed how he and his son have had to adapt after his wife Gemma died last year.
Speaking to Lorraine about coping with their loss, he said: “The loneliness is brutal.
“You have a lot of time on your own with your thoughts.
“It hurts, it’s a brutal jump from that [normal life] to very much emptiness.
“When [Ethan’s] eyes are shut, the house is quiet.”
Gemma died of Leukemia in November last year only three days after her diagnosis.
