Allen: I can't ban girls from drugs

Lily Allen has insisted she won't judge her daughters if they experiment with drugs one day.

The Sheezus singer - mum to daughters Ethel Mary, two, and Marnie, one, with husband Sam Cooper - has previously admitted to dabbling with drugs herself and said she would be a hypocrite if she told her girls never to touch them when they are older.

Lily said during an interview on Desert Island Discs: "I can't really do anything except be there for them. Quite rightly they would say, 'You were a hypocrite, you went and experimented and you said it was a right laugh. What do you mean I can't?'."

But Lily, who took to the stage at Glastonbury festival at the weekend, said she would warn her daughters about the consequences of illegal substances.

"I will advise them of the downfalls and the risks. But I don't like judging people," said the 29-year-old.
