Myleene Klass: My kids won't be sexualised

Myleene Klass won't "allow" her children to be sexualised.

The television personality has insisted she will do all she can to avoid her kids, Ava, seven, and Hero, four, from being exposed to things they shouldn't and has banned them from having mobile phones or iPads.

She said: "My children don't own mobiles or iPads. I won't swear in front of them and I don't let them watch pop videos because there is so much in them they shouldn't see yet. I don't need to be fast-forwarding their lives.

"I would rather explain things to them in their own time than have them watch someone on TV with their crotch out, legs akimbo.

"I am hugely aware of over-sexualisation of kids and I won't allow anything in my range that can be sexualised. Cherries, for example, are banned and I have a team specifically looking out for all that and making sure nothing inappropriate is put out."

The 37-year-old star - who has her own Baby K Mothercare line - has also defended her decision to include black and lace outfits in her clothing range for the children's retailer.

She added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "My kids' range is inspired by the Mediterranean, where they wear a lot of lace and a lot of black. I also happen to think black is very practical for young children who are playing, eating and spilling stuff.

"It has been going 10 years and sells in 32 countries. I must be doing something right."
