Katherine Ryan reveals the heartbreaking reason she WOULD let daughter Violet, 14, go on Love Island and predicts which famous star from the show she would be most like

Katherine Ryan has revealed the heartbreaking reason she let her 14-year-old daughter Violet go on Love Island.

The 40-year-old comedian revealed she had “nothing against” the ITV dating show – after a number of sons and daughters of celebrities including Gemma Owen invaded the villa.

She sadly recounted that because of the safeguards included in the series, this would likely be “one of the safest places for a teenager to be in a few years.”

Katherine also shared that she thought Violet would be most like Dani Dyer on the show, who turned out to be the Girl Next Door type.

She told The Sun: “As a teenager I did all sorts of dangerous things – sleeping in fields and getting into random cars.” When I was 17 I was dating someone who was 31.

“But I don’t think Violet will make mistakes like that. She probably can't help but internalize my feminist mantras, so I think she values ​​herself more than I did at that age.

“If she wanted to go on TV I wouldn't be against Love Island.” She would be the Dani Dyer type. Because of the safety measures on this show, it will probably be one of the safest places for a teenager in a few years.

“I imagine she's just there to support the other girls, say the right things and be a sweetheart.”

Katherine has two children, Fenna Grace, 13 months, and Fred, two, with her husband Bobby Kootstra, 40, and Violet with her ex-boyfriend Alex Edelman.

This comes after Katherine revealed last week exactly how many times a month she has sex with her husband.

The star explained that she likes to “keep a log” of all romantic activities with her husband of four years, Bobby, in case she gets pregnant.

In an interview with The Times, where she was asked if she was particularly active in the bedroom, Katherine replied: “No, but I should be.” We have sex exactly twice a month. I'm just logging it in case I get pregnant.'

The comedian regularly shares her life as a mother with her 983,000 Instagram followers and emphasizes her parenting style: “I am very confident. I do things my way and never follow what grandma says or what the book says.

Katherine also shared that she thought Violet would be most like Dani Dyer in the series, who turned out to be the Girl Next Door type (Dani starred in the series with her partner Jack Fincham).

“I never attended NCT groups. They tried to lure you, [I] said no. I was 24, pregnant in a foreign country with no family and thought, “I got it!” I got pregnant with Violet on purpose. I joke that she was a surprise, but she wasn't.'

She previously admitted that she and Bobby “argue back and forth about having more babies,” saying: “I'll never let him get the joke!” “I just really love children.”

Katherine and Bobby have been together since 2018, but have known each other since childhood when they grew up together in Canada.

Their childhood sweethearts, the two initially parted ways before coming back to life on this side of the Atlantic.

The couple entered into a civil partnership in 2019 and traveled to Denmark for the ceremony. Katherine previously told The Jonathan Ross Show: “It was a beautiful day. “It's perfect to have a life partner.

“We didn’t have a wedding, I didn’t have to put on a white dress and pretend I was a virgin, that ship has sailed!”
