Peter continued: ‘We had a great night, then we had a second night.

‘Then there was a knock at the hotel room door and I looked at the lads and they were like ‘get rid’.

Phil then asked: ‘So you didn’t go on a third night?’

To which Peter said: ‘He wrote a letter and put it under the hotel door saying he wanted to go out again and take us all for a meal, but he was full on.

‘He was up for it but we’d had enough!’

Meanwhile, on the show, Peter also explained that he’s ‘really looking forward’ to spending his first Christmas at home with his family after retiring from football.

After years of playing, which saw him having to train over the festive period, the sports star told how he couldn’t wait to have a ‘proper Christmas’, after declaring that ‘Christmas was non-existent!’ 

It comes as Peter’s wife Abbey Clancy appeared on Lorraine earlier that morning with their daughter Sophia, eight, where she discussed the youngster’s modelling debut. 

Despite Sophia’s tender age, the youngster has insisted that she’s ‘always wanted’ a career in fashion while her mum defended her choice to launch her into the modelling world so young.

When asked about Sophia being too young for the shoot, Abbey stated: ‘I know, just think there’s so much bad stuff in world, any excuse have fun with my daughter!… 

‘I’ve never pushed her into it, she wanted to do it! Having four kids, spreading my time is hard, so I appreciate spending time with my daughter.’

Abbey and husband Peter welcomed their fourth child Jack four months ago, and also share daughter, Liberty, four, and son Johnny, 20 months.

When Lorraine asked Sophia what she wanted to be when she’s older, the adorable tot said: ‘I want to be a model’.

Abbey added: ‘I’ve had great career, I have never come across problem or been in uncomfortable situations. Life’s too short, you’ve got to do what you love. If she wants to be a vet, popstar, doctor, footballer…. I just want her to be happy.’
