He said: ‘Of course TFI Friday is coming back in September. 

Explaining the decision to go online, he added: ‘The thing is, you don’t need a TV channel now. You just don’t need one.

‘It’s amazing what you can do. TFI Friday doesn’t have to be an hour long, it could be longer, we could livestream it.’

Chris added that he still has all of the ‘back catalogue’ from the show’s original run.

Away from his career, Chris is father to Noah, 13, Eli, nine, and three-year-old twins Walt (middle) and Boo with his wife Natasha Shishmanian.

The DJ also has a daughter Jade, 34, with his former fiancée Alison Ward.

Chris and Natasha tied the knot in a romantic ceremony in Faro, Portugal, in August 2007 and they have been happily married ever since.

Billie famously popped the question to Chris on his 35th birthday when she was the tender age of 18.

The former flames went onto tie the knot in a ceremony in Las Vegas at the time.

Prior to his union with the Because We Want To hitmaker, Chris was married to TV and radio personality Carol McGiffin, 61, from 1991 to 1994.
