Zoe Ball And Fat Boy Slim's Son Woody Cook Says Parents Have 'Cut Him Off' Financially

Speaking to the Mirror during an appearance at the Attitude Awards, the 20-year-old who has appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox with his mum, said: "My parents make it clear that I was born into a privilege they have had to work their ass off to get.

"My parents have cut me off completely. They are like, 'Do you want to be a trust fund child or do you want to work?'

"I want to work, so I am now self-sufficient. I don't have a student loan.

"I am doing it all by myself. The other day I couldn't afford bread, but I'm working through it."

Woody then went on to explain how he isn't like other celebrity offspring, adding: "A bouncer said to me, 'I knew you were coming and I didn't want to like you. I've seen the Brooklyn Beckhams, I've seen the s***, but I met you and you buck the trend'.

"My parents taught me to be myself and not rely on someone else."

Despite claiming he doesn't have any money, Woody still finds the cash to 'get off his nut' at home with pals.

He went on: "I can be a right creature. My poor mum is the one who gets up at half four every morning to go to work on the radio and I'll be off my nut.

"Me and my mates will be stumbling around the house still up and mum is like, 'Hi, I'm off to work'."

Woody, who recently came out as bisexual, wore a monochrome dress to the awards ceremony which was designed by Olli Hull - an advocate for sustainability and social equality.

The floor length, sleeveless dress was part of Olli's 'ACT NORMAL' collection and it featured hand painted graffiti-style writing and artwork.

Speaking about the inspiration behind the dress, Woody said: "My dad inspired me - he wore a bee costume at Glastonbury once and my mum is secretly happy I'm wearing a dress. She loves the fact I'm gay."
