Linda Robson admitted she thought her "national treasure" status meant she could park anywhere she wants.

The Loose Women panellist appeared on today's edition of Good Morning Britain. The Birds of a Feather star told Susanna Reid and Ed Balls how she had racked up thousands of pounds worth of parking fines, which has prompted her family to take away her car keys.

She said: "I’ve just paid £3,000 worth of parking." She added: "They've taken my car keys off of me, my kids, they're taking control of my money and my car.

"So I'm not allowed to drive anymore because I just go, ‘Well, I'm a national treasure - I can park wherever I like.'" The former 'I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!' star also said she receives "pocket money" twice a week, because she "can't be trusted" to spend responsibly.

She added: "I get pocket money on a Monday and a Friday because I can’t be trusted with my money either!" Linda has three children and the 66-year-old said she spends money on her family and expensive candles.

She added: "I like candles, so I buy expensive candles. And I like treating my family, my kids and my sisters." The TV star also shocked fans when she revealed former 'EastEnders' actor Joe Swash lost his virginity in her house.

She explained: "Joe lived, like, opposite me. Joe actually lost his virginity in my house!"
