Vogue Williams’s husband Spencer has joked that he has never “known a more irritating kid” as he admitted struggling with the couple’s two-year-old Theodore. 

Vogue revealed on their podcast how Theodore is driving Spencer Matthews "up the walls at the moment" as, according to her hubbie, he's "quite spoilt".

"Theodore is driving you up the walls at the moment,” Vogue said to which her Made in Chelsea husband replied: "I have never known a more irritating kid.

"He's quite spoilt, he just whinges all the time and without drawing attention to the fact that I spent many months in Africa doing incredibly lovely charity work, none of those kids cried none of them.

"Of course if they hurt themselves they might cry but I have spent time with loads and loads of two to ten-year-olds in Africa and they have nothing they never cry.

"Theodore cries in his mountain of toys because he can't find something."

Vogue who also shares daughter Gigi (11 months) with Spencer defended Theodore, saying that he was just like any child his age.

She said: "I don't think you understand that is what a two-year-old does and the problem with Theodore was we were away and everyone kept giving him TV which he's not allowed and he turns into the moodiest little naughty boy and that is why."

However, Vogue recently revealed how she had to warn her Theodore “that he is going to live with another family” because of his naughty behaviour.

The presenter told Joanne McNally on their podcast My Therapist Ghosted Me, that her son is “so aggressive and mean” after hitting the “terrible twos”.

Joanne asked, “Are we going to talk about Theodores anger issues?” and Vogue responded: “I thought he hit the terrible twos at like 18 months but now I really think he has hit it.

“He is so aggressive and mean to all of us in the house and I told him yesterday that he is going to live with another family if he keeps treating us all like that.”

Vogue also detailed some of the methods she has tried to try and calm her son when he is angry.

When Joanne asked: “Does he take that on board though?”, Vogue replied: “Nope. So I got a timer and I turned the timer upside down and he stays in his room for three minutes, that’s his time out.

“And he goes absolutely berserk in the room and I know when the time is up because he literally goes, ‘The time is up mummy!’ and screams the place down.

“He slaps me I don’t know what’s gotten into him lately he’s really quite naughty.

“He takes everything off Gigi and he tries to knock her hands over when she is crawling along so she falls on her face.”

Vogue revealed that ultimately Theodore is a very loving big brother, telling RSVP that little Gigi, who will turn one this summer has slotted into family life perfectly.

Brother and sister now have a special bond after an initial bit of jealousy from the couple’s eldest child.

As for baby number three, Vogue said it is not on the horizon for now.

“We would love to be able to have more kids but it is not something that we are thinking about right now,” she said.
