Frank, 58, said: “I told him that your grandpa is coming and nanny Sandra is coming.
The West Bromwich-born star told listeners to his Absolute Radio show that it meant not being able to pass on his roots.
A few months after his son Buzz was born in 2012, Frank Skinner’s relationship hit problems. His long-term partner, Cath Mason, was struggling with the demands of their baby. She felt that Skinner, who was 55 when he became a father, wasn’t doing enough. There were rows. She thought that perhaps they should split up.
“What I love about Cath is she is so honest,” says Skinner, 56. “She thought if we split then I would have Buzz three days a week and she’d have some time off.”
The 55-year-old comedian became a father for the first time in May after his girlfriend Cath Mason gave birth to Buzz Cody.
“Getting a laugh or a smile out of them is hard work, it’s like doing the Brits.”

Frank and his long-term partner Cath Mason haven’t revealed when the baby is due, or what the sex is. Although, the cheeky star did urge his listeners to “get knitting”, joking he’d at least be up earlier for his radio show.
I n the national tour that brings his new show to London on Monday, Frank Skinner no longer asks himself the stand-up comedian’s existential question: what’s it all about? Showbiz is, he admits, a concept album without a concept, unless it is conceptual to wish to amuse. “I want it to be well crafted,” he says, sharing a nearby sofa after a photo session, “but sometimes I think I’m just one level above tickling as a means of making people laugh.
“The theme is me and things that have happened to me. People write a show about their wife’s major illness and stuff like that. That’s a popular Edinburgh theme. Personally, I want jokes. I can’t resist ringing the bell at every possible opportunity.”

Skinner said: “I have something of an announcement to make . . . I’m going to be a father.”
