“When it comes to holidays, I told them: ‘Don’t you dare waste that fing money flying first class from here to New York – we all fing take off together, we all land together; think what else do with money’,” he exclusively told The Sun.

“When they ask if they can pop up to us for some nice food, we say ‘No you f***ing can’t’, so now they take their own picnics on board, and they’re absolutely fine in economy.

“I mean, what 14 year old needs to sit in a reclining chair?”

While his Instagram may look glamorous – think hanging out with good pal David Beckham in LA, exotic trips abroad and endless plates of ridiculously appealing-looking food – unquestionably Gordon is one of the hardest working men in showbiz.

He’s trying to instil his work ethic in his offspring[/caption]

And it is this unrelenting work ethic he and wife of 24 years have instilled in their five kids: Royal Marine Jack, 21, and twin sister, Holly, who is studying at fashion college, 19-year-old TV presenter Tilly, and two-year-old mini-Gordon, Oscar. 

So much so that two of his kids regularly volunteer at Great Ormond Street children’s hospital, whilst they all have London underground passes, in place of an Addison Lee taxi account.

He also refuses to let them have personal trainers.

“It’s so important to Tana and I that they stay seriously grounded and motivated,” he adds.

“The kids use the London underground, they used to walk to and back forth from school, and when we trained for the marathon and enlisted a trainer, we didn’t give them access – you don’t need a PT when you’re 18.

“And for the past four years they’ve been in and out of Great Ormond Street hospital, helping. They’ve been working, working cleaning and just spending some time with the kids.”
