He said: "After six weeks after Mimi was born Na went into hospital, she had sepsis twice. She spent the better half of a month in hospital because she got really really ill really quickly.
"Na is okay now. I won't lie, at one point we were in hospital and it was a little bit touch and go. They were talking about, particularly, induced comas and stuff like that."
The star went on to praise Naomi as he said: "Na was in a really tough spot but she came back from hospital and within a week she was like, 'You need to go back to work, you need to do this and you need to do that.' As much as I take the Mick, I've got nothing but respect for her.

"So I'm going to be training my mum [how to game], which should be a very very funny experience.

"It's an incredible thing to be a part of, because obviously who doesn't love Cadbury's, but secondly, it's more a case of I love the whole message behind it about bringing people together.
"This year hasn't exactly been the best for anyone if we're being honest. So to be a part of something where it feels like we're bringing people closest in our lives together, it feels like a really nice thing."
