He told RadioTimes: "It is very tricky at the moment to be able to say, because we need three or four months to set up a big foreign job.

"And it’s not really well us planning and spending hundreds and thousands of pounds setting up all of these fields, and then all of a sudden somebody says, ‘Oh well, we can’t go there now’ so we are facing some difficulties."

Jeff made a short journey into space earlier today with his brother Mark, 53, physics student Oliver Daemon, 18 and pilot Wally Funk, 82, who became the oldest man in space.

The New Shepard rocket touched down safely after 11 minutes in the West Texas desert.

He follows billionaire Richard Branson, who travelled to the edge of space in a Virgin Galactic rocket plane earlier this month.

Speaking after he landed, Mr Bezos said: "Oh my God. My expectations were high, and they were dramatically exceeded.

"The zero Gs may have been one of the biggest surprises, because it felt so normal.

"It felt like, almost like we were as humans evolved to be in that environment, which I know is impossible, but it felt so serene and peaceful and the floating.

"It’s actually much nicer than being in full one gravity."

The Blue Origin crew members took a number of historic items with them, including the goggles Amelia Earhart used to fly across the Atlantic.

They also took a brass medal made from the first hot air balloon which flew in 1783 – the first time humans left the Earth in control of the flight.

The crew also carried a piece of canvas from the Wright Flyer – the plane flown by the Wright brothers.

During the press conference, Jeff presented his mother with a feather necklace he wore on the flight.
