She added: “I said to him, ‘You will have to take it a bit seriously at times. If you want Shirley to notice the technique, you have to give it some welly.’

“But I’m sure he will work hard because he’ll want to get things right. He has the drive for it… I’m going to have major FOMO (fear of missing out) watching him perform.”
