Kids tune Jonathan Ross into music

Jonathan Ross has revealed that his kids help influence his music tastes.

Thanks to his three teenage kids, Betty Kitten, Harvey Kirby and Honey Kinney, with his screenwriter wife Jane Goldman, the chat show host gets to keep up with the current trends.

"I know all the new Jessie J and Nicki Minaj stuff because of my kids," he said.

"In the same way that I'll watch almost anything, I'll listen to almost anything. But it's great having my kids to help steer me in the right direction."

Jonathan - who is back on our screens with The Jonathan Ross Show - returns the favour by sharing his favourite classics.

"I make them listen to old music, which sometimes they really enjoy and sometimes hate," he joked.

The 50-year-old christened his new sofa on ITV1 with Sex And The City star Sarah Jessica Parker, Formula One racing champion Lewis Hamilton and multi-platinum selling artist Adele, who performed Turning Tables from her chart-topping album, 21.

"Adele is just about the biggest music star in the world right now, but also a lovely and very funny woman with a great story," he said.
