During the interview the star also spoke about his recent weight loss, which he said stemmed from his decision to adopt a vegan diet for the sake of his son Eric, five.

He explained: ‘I went to see this doctor in London. We did some tests. And then a month later he said, ”You have the worst diet I’ve ever met from any patient.” 

So I went, ”Okay, out of the smoking, the drinking, and diet, what do I have to drop?” And he said, ”The diet.” So I said, ”I’m in!” 

‘It was easier than I thought, and part of the reason I did it was because of Eric. I realised if I didn’t sort myself out physically, I wouldn’t be able to catch up with him. 

‘Because the minute he gets up to the minute he goes to sleep… their energy, you forget, at five-years-old, is phenomenal.’
