On The One Show in May, Jermaine revealed that Ellie was expecting again. During a chat with co-star Alex Jones, who recently welcomed a baby girl, Jermaine revealed that his youngest daughter was initially annoyed about the prospect of a new baby.

He admitted, "The four year old hasn't taken it that well to be honest with you."

Jermaine's baby bliss comes only days after he received praise for his compelling documentary that exposed social media's poor response to racial abuse of England's footballers.

The Channel 4 programme warned that we're heading back to the dark ages of racism.

During Hunting The Football Trolls, Jermaine said,"Bananas that were thrown to pitch have turned into monkey emojis sent to people on social media. And the use of the N-word seems to be normalised again. Offenders need to be held to account."
