In March 2012 Scottish actor David revealed he had become a ‘double dad’ after adopting Tyler a year earlier.

The former Doctor Who told Absolute Radio at the time: ‘My baby is almost a year old and I adopted my wife’s boy last year as well so I became a father twice in six months – that’s got to be something of a record hasn’t it?’

Georgia gave birth to Tyler in 2002, when she was just 17. She brought him up alone and has never publicly revealed who the father is.

David and Georgia wed in 2011 and went on to have children Olive, eight, Wilfred, six, Doris, four, and welcomed their fifth child together in October.

Ty spoke of his close bond with the actor, whom he calls his father, and why he would love to be the third Doctor in the family as he appeared on Lorraine.

David met Ty’s mum Georgia when she had a guest role in the 2008 episode The Doctor’s Daughter- and it was then when Ty met his TV hero. 

‘It was great, I was five when I first met my dad, my mum was working on Doctor Who at the time,’ Ty said.

‘I watched him on TV as the hero, and it was crazy how much your life can change.’
