Guy was discussing parenting his own son during lockdown and asked Dermot when he was due to become a dad.

Dermot replied: "End of June, sort of early July-ish. That's exciting isn't it? I can't wait!"

Guy then joked Dee and Dermot should name their unborn child after him, saying: "Guy is a nice name".

Dermot politely replied: "It's very majestic."

It came after Dermot had been talking about the fact he was still annoyed about having to give Dee a bigger slice of fish for dinner last night.

Dermot said: "I let my wife have a bigger portion of fish than me last night.

"Even though she's carrying my unborn child let me tell you that really stuck with me. It was hake!"

Dermot and Dee announced they were expecting their first child together in February, when he posted a photo of a floral wreath wrapped around a message which read, "Koppang O’Leary productions presents ‘New Arrival’ coming soon."
