Mel B has uploaded a photo to Instagram of one of the tyres of her Range Rover, which she says has been 'slashed'.
Her parents, David and Claire - an IT consultant and schools' administrator - don't seem to understand the depth of her wretchedness and can't convincingly explain why all that she knew and loved was torn down. Daisy herself appears fearful of getting to the bottom of things, perhaps because she knows there is ugly stuff down there. It was, she fears, the expense and challenges of child-rearing that led to the collapse of the relationship.'When I was ten, they told me the time was right [to split], but I thought: “I don't think it is, this can be sorted out”,' he says - a typical reaction among children, unwilling to accept the finality of a decision way out of their hands.

Filmed alone in his flat, the fling that wrecked his marriage obviously forgotten, the slim, flirty young DJ with long hair and trendy clothes is long gone.
Today he is grey, dull, and still woefully incapable of facing up to his actions that 'crazy night'. 'Self-preservation kicks in and you have to vote with your feet,' he says, before adding, in a final blow to his heartbroken, daughter, how having children felt like 'a big life experiment'.
Now in his 40s, he says the split of his parents when he was 16 cast a long shadow over his life, resulting in years of therapy.
