Jeremy Clarkson was an especially proud dad after attending his daughter Emily's book launch on Thursday night. The Grand Tour presenter joined his ex-wife Frances Cain for the special event, which saw Emily officially release her new book, Can I Speak to Someone in Charge. Jeremy shared a photo of his daughter's book at the launch, writing: "Only one copy left at the launch." He then shared a second snap, simply writing: "No copies left."

Emily, who is a popular blogger, also shared a photo from the event on Twitter, writing: "Today has been beyond anything I ever thought possible. Thank you. Thank you." The 23-year-old's new book is a series of open letters in which Emily discusses issues women face every day, including dieting and media scrutiny. Speaking about her latest project, she said: "Being asked to write a book was probably the best thing that's happened to me – up until that point I was gravely concerned that my mum was the only person reading my blog."

Emily shared a snap of herself with her book

She continued: "I hope this book will speak to a range of women, and men actually. I hope it will make people laugh, but more importantly I hope it will open people's eyes to the fact that we've got a lot to do if we want to make growing up in a good and kind world a possibility for our daughters." In her book, Emily spoke about her struggle with weight while growing up, writing: "I would grab at rolls on my stomach and squeeze them together so tightly there were finger marks. There were times when I was so unhappy that after eating I would cry to the point where I was sick."
