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

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
