Amanda Holden has revealed that she’s banned her 16-year-old daughter from going on Love Island.

The Britain’s Got Talent star said Lexi is a big fan of the ITV dating show, but that she’s already warned her that she can’t sign up as a contestant.

“This is becoming a bit of an obsession with my teenage daughter at home now," she said on her Heart radio show.

Holden – who is also mum to 10-year-old Hollie with her husband Chris Hughes – said it “worries” her a bit, given that football star Michael Owen’s daughter Gemma is a contestant this year.

“I’m like, you ain’t ever going on it,” she said.

Holden’s co-hosts Jamie Theakston and Ashley Roberts started to tease her, saying that Lexi, who is a budding model, would be absolutely perfect for the programme in the future.

But the star, 51, shut them down fast, saying: “She is not.

“Mama said no!”

“She loves me too much, she won’t do it," she added.

Holden isn’t the only star who has forbidden their child to go on the programme.
