He said in a video: “The big news is I’m writing a book. Here’s a question for you, what unites this lot? An old fella who looks after a memorial, Shirley Ballas, a police office who specialised in knife crime, Gary Speed, a coronavirus frontline hero, a girl from a beach in Brazil and a pensioner called Terrence?
“They are just some of the people I’ve spent time with over the years and theirs are the stories I would love to share.
“I’ve learnt so much from all of the people in the book and in a world of increasing uncertainty, those lessons become more important every day.
“While you’re watching this, I’m beavering away finishing things off so thank you for all your support and I really hope you’ll enjoy reading it.”
