Lewis and Anthony fell out after the former asked his dad to step down as his manager back in 2010.

At the time, he told the Daily Mail: “It was me who initiated the break.

“He’s got other things to focus on, but I don’t want my dad to be my manager any more. I will at some stage have a new manager, but I am in no rush.”

Anthony shared his thoughts about parting ways with his son back in 2012.

He told The Mirror: “Lewis was right to go his own way.

“And I can honestly say we have both become better people for it. It had to happen at some stage.

“One would have had to say to the other, ‘I’m leaving you’. And it wasn’t ­going to be me. I was so focused.

“I couldn’t think about anything ­except Lewis’s career.”
