Alexa Chung's unimpressed parents

Model and TV presenter Alexa Chung's parents are not impressed by her career choice.
Alexa Chung's parents are not impressed by her career choice.
The 27-year-old model-and-presenter - who was raised in a small village in the south of England by her mother Gillian and father Phil - doesn't feel she is favoured by her parents, as they champion the skills of her siblings instead.
She explained: "When I first got scouted on a beach in Majorca, at the age of 14, I don't think my parents actually believed me.
"But that was the point with my parents; they were the least pushy, least impressed people in the world.
"My dad's still like that. Whenever I tell him about anything I've done, he always goes, 'Ah, yes, but look what Nathalie's done.'
"Nathalie is my dad's favourite. Dom is my mum's. Fact. I tease them about it all the time."
However, Alexa revealed she was "addicted" to modelling when she first started out at the age of 17.
She said: "I was addicted, like a gambler. Yes, I could be making a measly £200 one day but tomorrow I might make a commercial for £300,000."
