In the clip, titled ‘how to run a household budget’ Myleene can be seen holding a glass container filled with pasta.

Picking out handfuls of pasta at a time, with baby Apollo sitting by her side, she shows a quick and funny way to teach little ones the costs of managing a household.

Myleene, who says she’s gained two stone in lockdown, shakes the pasta pot before grabbing out small handfuls for each cost she shouts out, before placing them into an even bigger container which symbolises the house, in this activity.

“This is your money,” she says pointing at the pasta. She then says: “tax, mortgage, electricity, water rates, gas, food, toiletries, phone bill, clothes, car, petrol,” and pours bits of pasta into ‘home’ each time.

She then gets to ‘children’ and pours the entire pot of pasta in the pot in a hilarious manner.
