Vogue Williams has admitted that she’s worried her daughter Gigi will end up in purgatory because she didn’t get her christened.

Speaking on the latest episode of her podcast with comedian Joanne McNally, the model said that she and her husband Spencer Matthews never had a christening for one-year-old Gigi because they’ve “passed the date.”

When the topic of religion came up, the 35-year-old said: “God, I haven’t been to Mass in years.

“I was only thinking about getting Gigi christened and I was like we’ve kind of passed the date.

“It’s so ingrained in me that she’s going to live in purgatory that I have to get her christened, I’m like can’t have her living in purgatory, she’s too cute. She wouldn’t like purgatory.”

Joanne agreed, saying: “Oh god no, she’d hate purgatory. That wouldn’t be Gigi’s vibe at all. Flying around with those headless babies with the wings? No, she’s got great legs, keep them on her, you need to get her christened.”

Joanne then told Vogue that she had been celebrating her godchild’s communion recently and was “enraged” by how boring the priest was.

She said: “I was incensed by the lack of performance on the part of the priest. I was incensed. I was like, ‘You’re literally giving us nothing. You’re not even selling the stuff anymore.’

“That’s because they know they’ve got an audience who want to get into the afterlife, like he’s not competing with anyone else.”

Vogue interjected: “I have to disagree. Some priests put on a great show.”

“This lad didn’t and I was enraged by it,” Joanne protested. “First, you couldn’t hear him and then halfway through he said, ‘Look, I’ve had my vocal chords removed because they had cancer.’ Okay fine. But there could have been a bit more physicality on the selling of the prayer.”

“Use your hands more! Use what you have!” Vogue laughed.
