Chloe Madeley: Judy Finnigan is 'stubborn'

Chloe Madeley claims Judy Finnigan is "the most stubborn person in the world".

The 28-year-old fitness trainer revealed her mum - who is one half of presenting duo Richard & Judy along with her father, Richard Madeley, 59 - will never accept any help or advice, which meant it was very difficult when she recently tried to nurse her back to health after she sustained a stress fracture in her foot.

Asked if her mother took exercise advice following the injury, she said: "No - she doesn't listen to me. She doesn't listen to anyone. She's the most stubborn person in the world. If ever anything like this happens I'm like: 'Do you want me to help?' And she's like: 'Maybe later.' So I leave her to it."

However, the former 'Dancing on Ice' contestant admitted she is still very close to her mum, even though the 67-year-old presenter has become "obsessed" with Chloe's boyfriend, English rugby player James Haskell, aged 30.

Questioned on whether they get on with each other, Chloe told Bella magazine: "Oh my God, she's always trying to sit next to him and hangs on his every word.

"Mum is a bit obsessed with him - but it's really cute. She really likes him. He's a ladies' man and she's not exempt from his flirty ways! My dad finds it funny."
