The 35-year-old rapper moved in with a family in the country for W’s reality series Famous Babysitter – which sees him take full parental responsibility for three boys in the Cotswolds – and he “didn’t have a bloody clue” what to do.

He said:

‘I had to worm sheep, which obviously doesn’t happen on a council estate in Hackney.

‘We had to get the eggs out of the hen house and I didn’t have a bloody clue.

‘One of the chicken had thrush. I was like, “Get me out of here”. I didn’t know chickens could get thrush, I didn’t want chicken thrush’.

Pro – whose real name is Stephen Manderson – also explained how life on the family farm presented other unexpected challenges, as the middle child has Down’s syndrome.

Opening up about the experience to Irish News, he said:

‘There was mum Caroline, dad Andy, then there was James who was the eldest at 17, Alex [15] who had Down’s syndrome and William [12].

‘I’d never encountered a child or adult with Down’s before, so that was something that I had to learn about very quickly.

‘Caroline and Andy are raising him to be somebody who’s independent and able to live independently. They want to give him a life as normal as possible, and why shouldn’t they?

‘But I had to learn how to best communicate with him, when I needed to push and when he needed space.

‘The last thing I wanted to do was walk in and upset everyone. Although inevitably there were some tears!’
