This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby has admitted she has a "strict" rule when it comes to parenting her daughter Belle.

The TV star's confession came after she opened up about her family life during a segment on the ITV daytime show, which saw herself and Philip Schofield discussing whether boys should be allowed to have long hair at school.

During the conversation, the topic of head lice was brought up and how schools, and parents, can avoid outbreaks of them.

Holly was then quick to say, "I've got young children, similar age and my daughter, she's got long hair, she was wants to wear her hair down at school.

"I always say to her, 'You can't darling, you have to put it up'."

She added her reasoning was "because I always hate it when that dreaded letter comes round and there's head lice in the school and they've got all their heads together."

Her comments comes after she revealed whether her brood would be expanding any time soon. The star already has three children, Harry, 10, Belle, eight, and Chester, five.

In an interview with Telegraph's Stella magazine, Holly admitted, "I'm always broody. Part of me wants another baby but part of me thinks that's not a good enough reason.

"Would it make the kids all have to grow up that bit more because there was a new baby in the house? I don't want to put that on them. I've almost decided not to - but not quite."

Hmm, well she's not said no.
