However, dad David has spoken out about his disapproval of his daughter's body modifications, telling The Daily Mail in 2019: "I went ballistic when she had the first tattoo. I was genuinely furious and told her she was going to have to live with it forever, but that didn't stop her having more."

He added: "As she's now an adult, living independently in London, there wasn't much more I could say."

David has previously spoken of how his passion for antiques came from his parents. He told The Express: "I've been surrounded by antiques all my life, it's a family passion - my parents would always be hunting around antiques shops and auctions.

"I started collecting coins and stamps at the age of five and bought my first antique at the age of nine. That along with a great love of history, it's always been the perfect business for me."
