The daughter of a Hong Kong tycoon who has offered 500 million Hong Kong dollars (£40 million) to any man who can woo her away from her lesbian partner said she is not upset with her father.

But it is unlikely Gigi Chao will be accepting any of the marriage proposals flooding in.

Ms Chao said she is on "very loving terms" with her father, Cecil Chao.

He made world headlines this week when he offered the marriage bounty after learning that his daughter had eloped with her partner to France.

Mr Chao is the chairman of Hong Kong property developer Cheuk Nang Holdings and has a reputation for being a playboy.

He said that he has received hundreds of offers from suitors while his daughter has had thousands.
