The country crooner (53) and his wife (55) have revealed they received two speeding tickets during filming of their hit UTV Ireland show, Daniel and Majella's B&B Road Trip.

But the Strictly star was quick to condemn speeding on our roads.

"We got two speeding tickets," he told Highland Radio.

"I think one of them was when we were driving in Carndonagh in Donegal and I'm not sure where the other one was.

"I certainly wouldn't be in favour of anyone speeding and I have to say that I think we were doing 70 in a 60 zone, it was just one of those things. I can't even remember if we were detected by a speed van or what it was but we were caught twice."

Their latest programme has emerged as UTV's most popular show by a landslide, earning an average of 230,000 viewers per episode and 15% audience share.

It has been commissioned for a second series, set to air next year.
