Andrea McLean has stunned Loose Women viewers after admitting that she used to bite her son Finlay when he was younger in a desperate bid to stop him attacking other children.
The 48-year-old star revealed on the show that she’d give her son, who is now 17 years old, “a little nibble” to teach him that biting “hurts”.
The chat first kicked off when I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Rebekah Vardy shared: “I bit someone and my mum bit me back to teach me a lesson.”
As the audience responded in shock, Andrea confessed that she had done the exact same thing, saying: “I think it’s slightly different if you’re really little.
“I’ve done it! I was like, ‘This hurts, see’… and gave them a little nibble.”
She then revealed that the controversial tactic worked as Finaly never bit anybody again.
Andrea shares Finlay with BBC producer Nick Green and also has 12-year-old daughter Amy with Our House presenter, Steve Toms.
The star since married Nick Feeney in an intimate ceremony last month.
