Jamie Oliver bans his daughters from posting selfies online


Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has hit out at parents who allow their teenage daughters to post sexy selfies on social media.

The father of five says he’s quite shocked by the images today’s teens post, describing many as “quite porno”.

And for his two oldest daughters, 15-year-old Poppy and 14-year-old Daisy, they’re completely banned from sharing selfies at all.

"I'm going to generalise massively here, but from my observation so far, at 13 to 14 the kind of pictures girls are putting up, just from what I have seen, are split 50/50 – normal young girl and then their weird hybrid of, dare I say it, quite porno, sort of luscious, kind of pouty lips, pushing boobs out," Jamie told hosts of The Lifestyle News Hound podcast.

He says that when his eight-year-old Petal is older, she’s most likely to follow the same rule, as will his two sons Buddy, seven, and River, 15 months.

“I'm like, 'Oh my god!'" he continued. "I don't even want to look at some of the things my daughter shows me.

"I'm like, 'Really? Aren't their parents all over that like a rash?' We banned Daisy from doing selfies and mainly she doesn't, but a couple slip up.”

The TV chef said he thinks teens getting likes on their selfies is like the "sugar" of social media.

"It's a quick way to get some sort of – forgive me – pat on the back or love," he said.
