Myleene Klass has furiously hit back at a troll who criticised her decision to throw a RuPaul’s Drag Race themed party for her daughter Hero’s 10th birthday.

The presenter, 43, responded to the troll who insisted that drag ‘is for adults’ and she should ‘let kids be kids,’ by insisting her daughter chose the party’s theme and simply wanted to celebrate its themes of ‘inclusivity and diversity.’

On Monday Myleene took to Instagram to share a glimpse of the vibrant and fun party she and fiancé Simon Motson threw for Hero, complete with its own runway, lipsync battles and a recorded message from queen Bimini Bon Boulash.

After sharing her first post of snaps and videos from the party, one user commented: ‘Drag Queen bday for a toddler?’

The mother-of-three was then quick to respond, writing: ‘You work in the arts! I would set that judgement.’

The troll then elaborated: ‘I am sorry my dear, but ”drag” is entertainment for adults, so better to let kids be kids first and don’t worry they gonna get there! I love kids as much as I love my artwork! Regards!’

Myleene then hit back: ‘Some drag acts might come with an age limite, but the enjoyment, diversity, inclusivity, skill and zero judgement, only joy, doesn’t.

‘The kids who came didn’t see limitation, they saw vibrance and celebration for being exactly who you want to be.

‘My daughter chose the theme, she’s been raised by her drag uncles and the LGBTQI community since she was born. She chose to celebrate in technicolour and her family dived right in to back her.

‘Again, you work in the arts. You should know better than throwing this out there.’

On Sunday Myleene celebrated daughter Hero’s birthday in style on Sunday as she threw the RuPaul’s Drag Race themed bash for her. 

The radio presenter, her daughters Hero and Ava, 13, as well as her fiancé Simon Motson, 46, got all dragged up for the occasion.

Making the day extra special for her little girl, Myleene set up a runway in the garden where they had lipsync battles, while Hero also had a special cake, and received a special message from Drag Race UK season two queen Bimini Bon Boulash.

Hero even took on the drag name Hero Hun Houlash in honour of the nonbinary queen, who was runner-up to Lawrence Chaney in the reality competition show but is clearly a favourite of Myleene’s daughter.

The garden was decked out with a red carpet runway as well as a gold-frame that had streamer curtain for Myleene and her family to make dramatic entrances.

Hero took to the stage in one moment to enjoy a lipsync battle against Ava, while Simon even stepped out while wearing a black dress, heels and a blue wig.

Myleene looked sensational in a pink wig and sparkling make-up which Hero and Ava also wore, and she dressed up in a striped black-and-white maxi dress.
