Midfielder Josh, who has played for Gillingham and Leyton Orient, wrote: "Thoroughly deserved through hard work and determination.

"Can't wait for the rest of the journey. Love ya bro x."

The radio host's cousin, Elliott Wright, spoke of childhood memories on the post, saying: "So proud, the memories of us as kids playing in the garden, too see both of you playing a professional game together, makes you realise, cherish every moment in life, it's too short…

Playing in the Spurs academy, he captained the youth team and played alongside Jamie Redknapp in the reserves.

However, following a summer of eating and drinking, he came back out of shape and was let go – which left him broken and in tears.

With a chance of FA cup tie ahead, The Only Way Is Essex star wants to stick it to Good Morning Britain presenter Piers.

Mark said while on the morning show: "The buzz was nearly as much as the buzz you had when you beat us on penalties in Soccer Aid – it was an incredible moment.

"Obviously I only got a few minutes. It was sensational to come on and make my professional debut and my brother making his debut.

"It was a memory I'll never forget and my family will never forget."
