The 56-year-old television presenter - who was dramatically sacked from 'Top Gear' in 2015 after arguing with one of the show's producers - has led his life in the spotlight and his 23-year-old daughter says she has paid the price and has had nasty comments chucked at her about her size since she was 17.

Opening up about being the daughter of a celebrity in her new book 'Can I Speak To Someone In Charge?' she says:

"There's only so many of these you can read before you want to lock yourself in a room and cry until you can't any more.

"I used to squeeze my eyes shut, cross my fingers and wish that when I woke up in the morning I would be thin. I did this every single night.

"Every day I would look at my reflection and grimace. Sometimes I would look at it and cry.

"I would grab fat rolls on my stomach and squeeze them together so tightly there were finger marks.

"There were times when I was so unhappy that after eating I would cry to the point where I was sick."

She goes on to reveal she's always struggled with her weight and her "enormous father" is probably to blame for her size, explaining: "I also know I will never be thin. I wasn't built that way. I have bosoms, rather large ones.

"I have an enormous father and some of his genes."

Emily, a size 10, is now happy with her body image but says her school days were particularly difficult because she hit puberty earlier than the other girls.

She explained: "I would look at my classmates, and all of them were so much thinner than me, and I wish that I had their bodies.

"Did it occur to me that the reason so many of them were so thin was they hadn't hit puberty and grown boobs or hips


"No... all I saw was ironing board upon ironing board."

Emily's debut book is out now and Jeremy previously admitting that he'd had "warm fuzzy" feelings over his daughter's huge success.
