She's had a great year, though, hasn't she? It's a bit of a tradition in our house to watch the queen's speech, and I think this year will be extra special."The Jubilee was amazing, though - just such a brilliant, special day with some amazing people."Gary - who has three children, Daniel, 12, Emily, 10, and three-year-old Daisy, with wife Dawn - can't wait for Christmas and is looking forward to spending lots of time with his family.He said: "It's a really nice cosy family affair - lots of food and drink and just good quality time with the family."
