Jonathan Ross denies he and wife Jane were 'instigators' of daughter Honey's ... trends now

Jonathan Ross has denied accusations that he and his wife Jane were 'instigators' of their daughter Honey's diet as a teenager.

The chat show host, 63, insisted that he and wife Jane, 53, had taken 'our cues from Honey' and that when their daughter, now 27, had wanted to stop the diet, they had supported her decision.

In 2020, Honey said that her parents had presented her with 'absolutely toxic' diets, after she struggled with body issues as a teen.

The writer and activist said she 'hated her body' and that her parents 'tried to give her solutions to her problem' which was to 'lose weight.'

But in a joint interview with the Times last week, Jonathan pushed back at the insinuation that he and Jane had tried to control Honey's diet.

He said: 'Honey did struggle at school because we found out she was severely dyslexic. She also developed some body issues when she very young and we could see it was making her unhappy. 

'She talked about getting fitter and going on a diet, which Jane and I tried to help her with. Crucially, though, the minute that Honey said she wanted to stop the diet, we said, “Great!” 

'Some of the headlines have hinted that we were the instigators of the diet, but we took our cues from Honey. We loved her dearly and we wanted her to be happy.'

Honey is now a body positive campaigner, and regularly shares stunning photos showing off her curves online.

Jonathan said that it was her decision to share the photos online and added: 'Did I talk to her about the dangers of being in the spotlight? Absolutely not! She’s a smart adult, old enough to make her own decisions and her own mistakes.'

Meanwhile, Honey herself cleared up the claims about her parents' response to
