Ollie confirmed that he and Gareth have secured a surrogate and that the trio are set to travel to the USA to start the process - once the current travel restrictions (opens in new tab) have loosened.

'After many months of planning, legal formalities (I can’t believe it has been so difficult) and building the next stage to our home, we will soon be travelling to America (as soon as we can, sadly fertility is not essential travel!!) With our surrogate and hopefully become pregnant.'

Thanking his fans for their ongoing support, Ollie promised to share each step of the journey, adding, 'Whatever happens and through the ups and downs, we are going to take you all on our journey.
