And if that includes doing an Australian accent, well, so be it.

The 43-year-old continued to use the mock twang - that is, perhaps best described as 'loosely' Australian - which he has picked up over the past few weeks, in his post-match interviews.

And he explained why he has been doing it, saying: “Aussie Ronnie is here to stay, mate! He ain’t going nowhere – he’s here for good!"

When asked if it was something to do with going in the jungle for I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, he added: “No mate, it’s all to do with Netflix… there’s a lot of Aussie shows on there and I’ve just been watching so many of them that I’ve just bloody become one of them, you know!”
