Ryan explained: “I just don’t say no to anything and in the meantime I do civil construction.

“I’m about to start doing civil construction and I have to do what every little boy dreams of and learn to drive trucks and diggers and dig big holes, so it’s a great adventure.”

When asked how much contact he’s had with cast members like Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan, Ryan joked, “Well, it’s very limited because that’s what the ordinance of the court says I am allowed to do.”

As for regrets, Ryan insists he doesn’t have many.

‘I wouldn’t change anything. Probably the biggest downside is trying to manage, like all that kind of fame and attention,” he said.

“It’s something I have to deal with, but when you realize your family has to deal with it as well and they weren’t brought up with it and they’re not trained in it and They have kids – kids don’t want all that attention on them.

“I was at the gym with my daughter and before you know it we have a whole exercise group that wants to take pictures with me and she’s like, ‘oh my god.

“It’s things like that that you kind of say ‘I’m grateful to be leaving’ at that point, in that maybe my kids can just go under the radar a little bit more and just enjoy having a little more dad instead of the famous tv guy.

Ryan already said The Daily Telegraph of his new career: “I’m not ruling anything out. I am taking a civil construction course which involves driving excavators and building roads.

“I like to play with this kind of machines. I like to do earthwork, all that kind of manual work. I’m there, but who knows where it will all end.

Ryan also revealed he had a commercial pilot’s license and said he “may come back to fly when the time comes”.

‘I did and enjoyed it very much. I was born there, I have my family there, aunts and cousins,” he said.

“I went back in 2000 and I went back in 1999, it’s a great place.

“The Brits, the UK – it’s a wonderful place, they hug the neighbors like big, big warm hugs. It’s nice.’

“These are things you probably wouldn’t normally see and hope to see a kangaroo bounce on camera one day.”
