    He also revealed he didn't get to walk his daughter down the aisle during the secret ceremony in France at the weekend - that job went to Brad and Ange's sons, Maddox and Pax, instead.

    "The kids must have had a wonderful time at the wedding because they all had their things to do," he said. "It must have been very beautiful, I’m very happy for them.”

    But despite not actually being at the ceremony, the 75-year-old said he was looking forward to helping the happy couple celebrate soon.

    “She’s working now with Brad and I’ve got a couple of things to do too but as soon as we can we’ll get together, it’s going to be exciting,” he said.
