Davina McCall has revealed she told her eight-year-old daughter that heroin is "fantastic". Before finding fame as a TV presenter, Davina fought a battle with drug addiction but she explained that her experiences showed her she needed to be honest with her children.
"Recently, because of something on Radio 1, we had to have a drugs conversation. Holly asked me, 'What do they feel like?' If I told her that heroin didn't feel nice and then she tried it and it did, she'll think, 'Mum was lying'," Davina told Easy Living magazine. "But if I say, 'Heroin is so fantastic you'll want to take it again, then you'll get addicted, which is horrible', that's honest and more frightening. If you have an open relationship with your children, those really massive conversations, drugs, sex, alcohol, happen naturally."
