If you told me I’d be on my 33rd album, I’d expect to be in an old people’s home in a rocking chair! I saw the stats recently and I’ve apparently made 26 more albums than Beyoncé but two less than Elton John, so that’s now my challenge. You’ve recorded a song on your new album with your son Lucas.

How was that? It came out of the blue because I’ve heard him sing around the house, but he’s never wanted to sing professionally. But he turned round one day and said, “I think my voice is going to break soon and it’s a shame we haven’t sung anything together,” so he came to the studio and it was a real tear-in-the-eye moment for me.

You did Strictly Come Dancing in 2004. Do you still dance?

Not in any formal sense, but before Strictly I’d never danced at all, not even on my wedding night. Now, once I’ve had a few too many sherbets, I turn into the Welsh John Travolta. I’m on the dance floor giving it large, but I don’t remember any of the moves from the show. 

What’s the biggest misconception about you?

Even now, at the age of 46, people still think I’m a whiter-than-white choirboy and I’ve never been that. I’ve always just been a normal person and not an angelic little boy who spends 99 per cent of his time in churches.

When was the last time you cried?

When I did Going Back Giving Back recently. It was such an emotional show that I cried on 15 of the 22 episodes.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?

Terry Wogan told me, “Spread yourself as thinly as possible because it makes it more difficult for people to get rid of you.” That’s why I do everything I’m asked to do. 

What’s on the cards for you work-wise for the rest of the year?

I’m touring Australia, then I’ll be back here promoting the new album. My Weekend show is back on ITV at Christmas, too, and I’ll be carrying on with my Classic FM show and Songs Of Praise. I’ll be keeping busy!

One Voice: Believe is out now.

Aled tours the UK from November 17.
