Lily Allen has named her baby daughter Ethel Mary, according to reports.

The Smile singer sparked speculation that she'd been inspired by EastEnders with her choice of moniker, as Ethel May Skinner was the name of Dot Cotton's friend in the BBC One soap.

The Sun said that Lily's mum, film producer Alison Owen, revealed her granddaughter's name to a friend on Facebook.

A spokesman for the star refused to comment on the report.

Lily, who married building boss Sam Cooper last summer, gave birth to their first child in November.

But she's kept tight-lipped about the arrival, saying little except to tweet last month to say that it was "very touching" to receive "all the flowers and lovely messages".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
