Jonathan Ross’ daughter Honey has revealed he and wife Jane Goldman presented her with ‘absolutely toxic’ diets when she felt unhappy about her weight as a teen. 

On Loose Women on Tuesday, the writer and activist, 23, said she ‘hated her body’ and that her parents ‘tried to give her solutions to her problem’ which was to ‘lose weight.’

Explaining her struggle to have a positive body image, Honey said: ‘From a young age, I felt I didn’t have any control over my image.

‘I felt I didn’t have a place to carve out my own identity. I found Instagram and I was like, I can express myself and show people who I really am. 

‘It was a way for me to figure myself out better. I have parents who were raised in the same society as all of us.’

Honey continued: ‘They saw me, a teenage girl coming home saying, I hate my body.

‘My advice to parents is keep that as far away from your children as possible, if you want them to have a good relationship with food and their bodies growing up do not shame them.’

Honey was later asked by the panel if she felt there was nothing wrong with using the word fat, to which she said: ‘It’s a descriptor. You would call someone thin.’

On Sunday, Jonathan celebrated 32 years of marriage with Jane by sharing a sweet throwback picture of his pink-haired wife, 50, on Instagram. 

The talk show host, 59, who got married in 1988, wrote: ‘Today I have enjoyed 32 years married to this Alpha Female. We celebrated with Marmite on toast. Here’s to 32 more!’

He shared the snap of his wife perched on vibrant gypsy wagon wearing a kitsch yet chic turquoise and pink dress which showcased her curves.

Jane accessorised with a hot pink pendant and watch that complemented her eye-popping fuchsia tresses which she styled in a natural beachy wave. 

The English rose opted for a natural makeup look that highlighted her delicate features as she posed for the snap. 

Jane is a woman of many talents as she works as a screenwriter, author and producer.

She has co-written screenplays for the Kingsman: The Secret Service, and X Men: First Class, and she accomplished her first solo screen play with the 2012 film, The Woman In Black.

Jane met her husband-to-be when she was 16-years-old at an event when she was a budding showbiz journalist and they married two years later.

Jonathan-who is almost ten years her senior-was at the beginning stage of his talk-show hosting career and struck up conversation with the young journalist.   

She told The Times: ‘I met Jonathan at some sort of promotional event.

‘He’d just started his show The Last Resort. He’d only been doing it for two weeks, I think.’

The pair share three children together, Betty, 29, Harvey, 29, and Honey, 23, who is apparently very curious about the details of their first encounter. 

Jane added: ‘I can’t remember what we talked about. I wish I could. Honey’s always asking me that, but I really can’t remember.

‘I think I invited him to some other thing, hoping to see him again. Maybe I was less socially awkward back then.’

Despite not remembering their initial conversation, Jane recalled that the couple connected through their love of American pop culture, science-fiction and horror films.  

For Jonathan, there is only one leading lady in his life and that will never change. 

He said: ‘Jane’s my ideal, whatever way she is. We’ve grown up together and I become more passionate about her as the years go by.

‘For me, it’s only ever been Jane and it only ever will be.’
