He added: ‘As of next year I won’t be on the show. I’ve made a decision to move on to other challenges. This is actually quite difficult but I’m moving on.’

Byron went on to say, ‘it’s been hard to get up at 4.30am each day’ as he hasn’t been able to do ‘much else’.

‘It’s just hard… It’s not because I don’t love being it but I just can’t do seven things at once. This has not been easy,’ he said breaking down in tears.

‘To be able to do some other things I want to do, I can’t do this as well because I just don’t have the energy,’ he explained.

‘Hopefully how I set up my life now, I’ll have more flexibility to spend time with my son and my beautiful girlfriend Alex.’
