Luckily, Tom’s premature daughters – Roma and Darla – came through after an emergency C-section.

In a thoughtful moment online, Tom told fans how lucky he is to have gotten through the tough times in his life – having found success in business and on TV.

He wrote, “I know I’ve been spamming my social media with pictures of our little twins and my little family for the past few weeks, but I can honestly say they’re my greatest achievement in life.”

“I always think back to where I was in my life many years ago: selling used goods, sleeping downstairs on a fold-out bed on the floor and driving a rickety £500 van.”

“I always dreamed and believed in myself that I would make it, but I never imagined how far I would actually get.

“Having my beautiful family to take care of keeps me going. It just shows you what hard work can achieve in life.”

“Set goals, stay focused and don’t give up. Hard work beats talent every time.”

“Everyone reading this post thinks they can’t do better and it never will happen to them. Trust me it will get better.”

“Hard times don’t last, but tough people do.

“Overcome the fear. Challenge yourself. Dream big. It will happen. Good night and God bless you. bosh.”

Tom is famous for his catchphrase ‘Bosh’ and his viral breakfast at Dino’s Cafe in Spitalfields, east London.

He is best known for the 2019 series The Apprentice, which lasted until the quarterfinals.

He has since appeared on Celebrity Masterchef and recently directed The Weakest Link.
