But parents Frank and Debbie told their 24-year-old footie ace son that they were already in it – the small three-bedroom home where the star grew up, the Mirror reported.

Debbie, 50, told a family pal that she thought it was very generous of Gareth but the couple liked being where they were with good neighbours.

She and retired school caretaker Frank, 54, had bought the former council house in Cardiff for 12,000 pounds more than 30 years ago, and the house is worth 170,000 pounds today.
