Speaking in special magazine This is Davina, she said: "There were no boundaries. Wearing make-up, short skirts, high heels at 13, drinking... eventually, I even took drugs with her."

The former Big Brother host - who was raised by her grandparents in England - went on to explain that although she doesn't blame her mum for her substance abuse, she realises her relationship with Florence was "screwed up".

"I was just a kid and... I thought she was cool because my granny, Pippy, and my dad never let me do any of that in England. I realised years later it was because they were normal, responsible adults."

Davina cut her mother out of her life in 2000 when Florence sold a story about her daughter suggesting she was about to relapse the day before her wedding to Matthew Robertson.
