Ashley James’ father, Geoff, has slammed his daughter for her posh accent on Celebrity Big Brother.

The 60-year-old parent has claimed the former Made In Chelsea has ditched her “northern roots” and started speaking eloquently because of her appearance on reality TV shows, including the E4 programme. 

He said: “But working on TV, she has to speak the Queen’s English.”

The Hoxton Radio DJ’s parent has revealed Ashley’s upbringing was far from what she leads viewers to believe, as Geoff reveals the blonde-haired beauty grew up in a working class background. 

“I left school at 15 to start milking cows on a farm,” he said. 

“I had to work night and day to send Ashley and her siblings to school, but it was worth every penny.”

Although Ashley has adopted a well spoken manner, Geoff believes she is still “proud” of her family home and is not putting on a different accent because she is ashamed of her past. 

“I’m sure she’s proud of her northern roots,” he added.

“She comes from a tiny little town in the middle of nowhere, but she’s always been independent.”

Ashley has sparked up a romance with Ginuwine during her time on the Channel 5 show, but the star’s father was shocked when he found out she was signing up for the programme.

Although Geoff was surprised to see his child in the famous Elstree abode, he is proud of her decision. 

Speaking to Heat! magazine, he said: “It’s a world away from my life. But I’m the proudest dad in the world.”
