Darren, who is dad to four-year-old Flynn, said he’d take his partner, Nicola, 21, as soon as they’re allowed to fly there.

He said: “When I told Nicola she didn’t believe me at first because I’m a bit of a prankster.

“But now she knows it’s real, we're busy planning all the things we want to do when we’re there.”
