Nine-tenths of television is watched when it is broadcast despite the rise of on-demand services and new technology, according to new figures.

He said of second wife Andrea: “She is very supportive and was fine with it when I asked her. It’s not like it’s a Love Island situation, which she wouldn’t have been happy with me doing. “This is very different.
