Chatting to The Mirror, Gazza spoke of his son opting to take on ballet lessons instead of picking up some football boots, he said:

“Yeah, he was going to do his dancing lessons in London and I did have a little sly look in and just choked up a little bit watching him dance, seeing how good he was and how much he enjoyed it.”

“It got me emotional seeing him enjoying himself. And after seeing videos from Dancing On Ice training that he’s showed me, he’s good, he can win!”

Although he was proud, he did state he would like to see Regan do a Gemma Collins!

“I’d quite like to see him do a Gemma Collins and fall over! But he’d probably turn that into the worm dance or something, he’d style it out rather than be embarrassed, but it would be funny!”
