One fan replied: "Portrait tattoos are a dangerous game! You’re a brave man! Xx", while a second typed: “You’re having a laugh!”

Meanwhile a third quipped: “That’s a joke, right???” And a fourth chimed: “One word. Why?”

A handful of people also doubted the tattoo’s likeness to Ronaldo, saying “Was his teeth really that bad???”, with another user exclaiming: “What’s up with his teeth?”.

It’s not Roman’s first tattoo tribute, as the radio host previously had an image of a dove inked onto his body in August 2020.

Roman copied the tattoo from his friend, radio producer Joe Lyons, who passed away.

He opened up about his reasons for getting the tattoo, saying: "Joe had this tattoo and I always used to say it was awful and looked like a pigeon. So I got it in the same spot…”

He uploaded a photo to social media of himself laying on a tattoo bed, having the design inked onto his leg.

Roman previously opened up about his battle with depression, releasing his own self-help book called Are You Really Ok?

Speaking about his time on I’m A Celebrity in 2019, he told of how he was helped by ITV bosses with his mental health struggles.

He said: "Just before I went into I’m A Celeb there was one who was amazing.

"She was part of the reason that saved my life and it was ITV and I’m A Celeb who gave me her. I struggled hugely when I came out of there.

"Doing this book has been like therapy. I found myself crying as I retold parts of my life — not parts that were even sad but memories and talking about them."
