Kirstie Allsopp has revealed that she bans her sons from using the internet in their bedrooms and accused charity the NSPCC of not doing to enough to prevent children from viewing porn online.

The Location, Location, Location star spoke out after a report for the NSPCC’s ChildLine service found that 12 per cent of children aged 12 to 13 have made or been part of a sexually explicit video.

Kirstie, 43, who has two sons, aged eight and six, tweeted her feelings on the matter.



After listening to Peter Liver, the director of Childline Services, on Radio 4′s Today programme Kirstie said that the charity needed to do more.



Her comments come after screen stars Damian Lewis and his wife Helen McCrory revealed that they forbid their two children from using computers during the week.

The couple also impose a ’10-minute rule’ for weekends, fearing their nine and eight-year-old boys will be unable to express themselves if they overuse technology.

Peaky Blinders actress Helen told Stella magazine: “I want the children I meet to be less interested in staring at a computer screen and more interested in talking to me.

“There’s a whole generation of children growing up who don’t seem able to express themselves.”
