Richard and Judy’s daughter Chloe Madeley has apologised for taking drugs, admitting she was ‘stupid’.

The 21-year-old was pictured apparently smoking cannabis from a bong pipe. The pictures, from a party last August, were posted on Facebook and then leaked to a newspaper.

Chloe (pictured, with Richard) issued a statement saying: “I am really sorry.

“I was really stupid. I regret doing what I did and have learnt my lesson. I am really sorry for any embarrassment I have caused my family.”

TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan have previously boasted their children, Chloe and Jack, 22, are vehemently anti-drugs.

Richard, 52, said: “They have friends that do them, but they actively discourage it.”
Judy, 60, added: “If one of our kids’ friends says to them, ‘Let’s do drugs,’ they’ll actually shout at them.”

Following the revelations they issued a statement to the Mirror saying: “We’ve obviously spoken to Chloe and whilst we – like most parents – are aware that kids her age sometimes experiment, it is always a bad idea.

“However, she is an extremely sensible person, and now she knows that too.”
