While it means getting up and out of the house very early in the morning, it also means he gets to spend the day with his kids, four-year-old Emma and one-year-old Jamie.

He said: “That’s the beauty of the show. It’s true that I get up very early, but I don’t come home until the afternoon and I go home to pick up the kids and take my daughter to swimming lessons or my son, so that’s the reality. really good for taking my time and that’s the beauty of it.

“The problem is that I often have to go to bed before my child is four years old.

“On Halloween, we were partying at a friend’s house right around the corner and she was having her time with all her neighbors and friends by her side and it was half past eight and I really have to take her home, no. for her, but because I have to work in the morning.

“It’s pretty sad every time you have your four-year-old house because you need to go to bed before she does.”

And Tommy, said he had to tell his kids he was doing his homework when he studied notes at night.

He said: “We get all our notes sent to us the night before maybe six or seven o’clock, that’s when all the notes show who you’re going to talk to. , the topic you will talk about.

“So two kids are in the tub and you’re trying not to drown them and I’m trying to read my notes to make sure I know what we’re going to talk about the next morning.

“My daughter would try to play with me and I would say to her ‘no, this is you doing homework, I tried to get you to do your reading earlier.’

“It’s funny with this show but it’s great, it means I’m home in the evenings and afternoons spending quality time with my kids and my wife, which is great.”

SPORTS CLAN

But even though he no longer plays rugby, Tommy still wants his kids to have a sport in their lives.

Speaking during the launch of Virgin Media’s new schedule, he said: “I’d love for them to get into a sport of some sort. If Emma or Jamie wants to be in rugby, I’ll support 100%.

“I think the benefits you get from sport in general are huge. Whether it’s rugby.

“I think I’ve learned a lot about making friends, winning, learning to lose and being able to move on from failures, so 100% I want my kids to be in a sport of some sort.

“My daughter, she’s swimming, she’s doing ballet, she’s scouting, so whatever she loves, I’ll try and push her to participate as much as I can because I think its benefits are huge.

“And that’s one of the big challenges that I’ve seen with this pandemic, is that a lot of the activities for the kids and the classrooms and schools are closed, and I think the impact that’s had on the kids. It’s huge for kids to miss out on those extra-curricular activities.”
