David Cameron reveals crush on supermodel Cheryl Tiegs

London, May 3 (ANI): David Cameron has revealed that he had the iconic 1978 Sports Illustrated poster of the American supermodel in a pink bikini on his wall when he was young.

The Prime Minister opened up about his first celebrity crush and the unexpected death of his father during an interview for a magazine.

On being asked about his first celebrity crush during an interview for Tesco Magazine, Cameron said: "I'm afraid, like everyone else, I think I had that poster of Cheryl Tiegs on my wall," the Daily Mail reported.

Cameron has talked openly in the interview about his family life, saying he plays 'good cop' with the children and loves making rhubarb crumble.

He also spoke of his family's struggle to deal with the death of his father Ian in 2010.

"It was a very big shock to everybody, obviously, and to mum, because they were married for more than 46 years," he said.

"I think mum still feels lonely. But the good thing is that she's got lots of grandchildren. She's a pretty active granny. If you want any support with childcare, you've got to book in pretty early."

The 45-year-old said he and wife Samantha sometimes used the 'good cop, bad cop' routine to help control their son Elwen, six, and daughter Florence, who is nearly two.

"I'm usually the good cop, Sam's brilliant at just playing with the children and having a great time," he said.

"I'm more of a typical dad - let's go and plant the vegetables, let's go on a cycle ride, or let's do a structured activity. My biggest obsession with the kids is cooking. It's brilliant.

"I do a lot of cooking anyway but I've got into more child-friendly cooking such as pancakes, baking, rhubarb crumble - anything that involves getting messy and licking the bowl.

"As a kid, that was always the most exciting thing," he said.

The premier praised his high-flying wife as 'super-organised' and said he tries to spend lunchtime with the family in the flat above Downing Street.

"I know if I spend time with Florence, I get more out of her,' he said.

"She appears when I walk into the flat and pats the sofa, as if to say 'now, sit down, don't just come up here and eat your lunch'.

"She's worried I'm going to rush in and out, which is what I often have to do.

"I think a framework is also important. I do believe in structure - if children know what's expected of them in terms of how to behave, how to eat, what time bedtime is, it works. Routine, structure, boundaries," he added. (ANI)
