The Loose Women star, 66, opened up about the hefty bill she owes while discussing her upcoming film Bermondsey Tales: Fall of The Roman Empire.

Ms Robson said her kids no longer allow her to drive and have taken control of her finances too.

She said: “They've taken my car keys off of me, my kids, they're taking control of my money and my car. So I'm not allowed to drive anymore because I just go, ‘Well, I'm a national treasure - I can park wherever I like’.”

The TV star said she now receives pocket money on “Monday and Friday” from her kids, after they took control of her finances, she told Good Morning Britain.

Asked how she spends the bi-weekly stipend, she said: “I like candles, so I buy expensive candles. And I like treating my family, my kids and my sisters.”

Discussing the financial arrangement on Lorraine, Ms Robson said it was set up by her daughter Lauren, who explained: “I just have her money, it goes into an account I have access too and I give her money every Monday.”

Linda added: “I ask for more, I say I’ve run out of money, and she says “no you’ve had your spending money.”

Lauren finally joked: “It's like role reversal because I am like the parent.”
