Karen and Greg spoke in training about the disco number, with the latter explaining his late sister would ‘always have banging disco music on whenever you came round.’

‘Family is fantastically important to me,’ Greg continued, ‘I feel very fortunate – Emma [Thompson] and I, that we’ve moulded a family over the years.’

He went on to explain his sister’s illness, telling viewers: ‘My sister was first diagnosed with breast cancer and she had the brutal treatment of chemotherapy but I don’t think she was ever out of the woods

‘She had got bone cancer and she died just over a year from her diagnosis.
