As well as diving with sharks, the jolly gift-giver also tested his driving skills around the Knockhill Racing Circuit.

Deep Sea World’s Aisling Thornton said: “When he asked if he could dive with our sharks we were only too pleased to help out.

“He enjoyed some incredibly close encounters with our sand tiger sharks and seemed to thoroughly enjoy his time underwater. CHAS is an amazing charity and this is a fantastic way to raise much needed funds for such a worthwhile cause.”
