‘I stopped dating them because it was too weird’: Gillian McKeith’s daughter Afton reveals she does not go out with English men because they know her mother as the ‘Poo Lady’
Gillian McKeith’s daughter Afton has revealed she does not go out with English men because they know her mother from You Are What You Eat.
The nutritionist’s role on the show involved studying other people’s poo and saw her labelled the ‘Poo Lady’.
Afton, 23, told the Mirror: ‘I get nervous dating men from England as they know my mum from TV. I stopped going out with them because it was too weird.’
Meanwhile, her elder sister Skylar, 28, revealed she was bullied at school because of her mother’s role on the show.
She said: ‘I was at secondary school in London and I had people shouting down the hallway, “Skylar, I saw your mum sniffing poo on TV last night.” They were horrible and made fun of me. I really struggled.’
