Myleene Klass has revealed her diet secret – drinking her own breast milk.

The former Hearsay singer said she loves to have a splash of it in a cup of tea and thinks it’s completely normal.

“Come on, it’s normal... I made everyone try mine. It tastes just like those probiotic yoghurt drinks,” she told reporters at The Big If London charity event.

Myleene, who is mum to five-year-old Ava and two-year-old Hero, said she doesn’t find it strange because her Royal Navy dad added a dash of it to her tea when she was younger.

“I grew up knowing that he did that so it’s not weird to me,” she added.

The face of Littlewoods described the taste as ‘sweet – but not as sweet as condensed milk’ and not dissimilar to probiotic yoghurt… Delicious.

Myleene – who split from the father of her children Gareth Quinn in June last year - joked that people will now think of her as a hippy.

“I sound like a happy-clappy hippy. Oh well, now you know. We’re that kind of family,” she laughed.

The mum-of-two’s revelation comes just days after Khloe Kardashian refused to drink sister Kourtney’s breast milk.

The youngest Kardashian sister was offered $100 (£66) to drink some of of the fresh milk but Khloe demanded ‘$500 for a sip,’ in the clip posted on video-sharing site Keek.
