Davina: Kids won’t inherit TV fortune

Davina McCall has "painstakingly" told her children they won't receive her inheritance.<br/>The 47-year-old actress has helmed a number of presenting roles in the past and is currently hosting documentary Long Lost Family.<br/>Her success saw her earn a whopping £1.25 million a year while working on Big Brother in the past, but she doesn't plan on passing all her money down to her offspring. Davina has daughters Holly, 14 and 12-year-old Tilly, as well as son Chester, eight, with former Pet Rescue presenter husband Matthew Robertson.<br/>“I read an article recently that said girls of working mothers go off and have a great work ethic themselves," she told British newspaper The Sun.<br/>“I look at my daughters now and have painstakingly told them they won’t be inheriting any money. Me and Matthew plan on spending every penny!"<br/>Davina added that although she'll treat them to fun holidays throughout their lives, when the time comes, they'll have to "stand on their own two feet".<br/>It isn't just Long Lost Family she's been busy with recently; the TV personality also shot the series Life at the Extreme. During filming, Davina travelled around the globe to witness how humans and animals cope in various hostile areas.<br/>“I have this name for myself, Davina ‘Extreme’ McCall, but I am the most risk-averse person," she laughed.<br/>“Production companies think, ‘Davina in tatters - amazing. Let’s get more of that’. For the pilot they had me running with cheetahs and that sounded interesting."<br/>It was a struggle to be away from her family for so long at the beginning, but eventually Davina found herself caught up in the "amazing" experience.
