Mum of 2 Rochelle Humes might have a varied CV when it comes to her TV presenting career… but there's one show she just won’t stick on when she’s at home.


The 28-year-old star, who shares 4-year-old Alaia-Mai and 7-month-old baby Valentina Raine with husband Marvin, told MFM that she’s banned her eldest from watching the cartoon series Horrid Henry!

All thanks to, she explains, Henry’s rather horrid influence…

“He’s just this little boy, like, this absolute terror,” she admitted. “It wasn’t a massive thing - I watched it with her once and I was like ‘I really don’t like this’.

“She was starting to want to not eat her dinner because it was ‘yucky’ and all of that and I was like ‘no’. We have got rid of that.”

(Emmerdale’s Adam Thomas recently did exactly the same thing – and it seems a fair few parents have followed suit, too.)

Interestingly, she also confessed that – much like The Saturdays bandmate Una Healy – she’s not majorly convinced by the recent craze for YouTubers, either.

Particularly, YouTube videos featuring little ones unboxing toys or munching on sweeties.

“I’m not into this whole ‘children unwrap toys’ scenario,” she told us. “I don’t like it when she’s just watching other kids unbox toys or eating sweets.”

“There’s a thing they do – YouTube Kids – where it’s only stuff that’s vetted and suitable for little ones…

"I like the kind of things she might already watch. Or something a little more educational.”

Are there any kids’ shows you’ve barred in your house? Perhaps you’re also not keen on YouTube vids or limit how many toy-opening vids they can watch?
