My mum’s a children’s TV legend but I’ve found my voice in a totally different career | The Sun

TELLY presenter Gail Porter has proven to be a woman of many talents after reaching the heights as a model and actress.

The one time lads’ mags favourite, 52, used to host Top of the Pops and was infamously projected onto the Houses of Parliament in 1999 as a stunt for FHM’s Sexiest Women Poll.

Gail, from Portobello, Edinburgh, shot to fame in 1997 on the BBC kids show Fully Booked before becoming a regular on Channel 4’s The Big Breakfast as well as a host of children's TV shows.

But her personal life also often hit the headlines at the peak of her powers.

She dated musicians including late Prodigy frontman Keith Flint, before going on to marry Toploader guitarist Dan Hipgrave in 2001, having a daughter Honey together, before divorcing in 2005.

And Honey, 21, is now beginning to carve out her own career in showbiz as she follows in her parents’ footsteps.

A talented singer, earlier this year she released her first single with boyfriend Harvey.

The single was titled Let It Sit by Honey and Harvey and released on major streaming platforms.

Gail was delighted to see her daughter begin her music journey and hailed the track.

On Instagram, she said 'So proud' along with a heart emoji in her sweet post.

Gail was chuffed to be asked to appear in a pop video earlier this year – nearly 25 years after her last appearance in a music promo.

She worked with Dundee-based musician Nick Shane for his track Shine Over Me.

It’s only the second time the Scot has been asked to star in a video since a steamy shower scene in singer Ben Ofoedu’s solo single Your Love in 2000.
