La Roux singer Elly Jackson has revealed that her actress mother Trudie Goodwin gave her advice on how to deal with fame.

Goodwin, who has played June Ackland in ITV's The Bill for 23 years, offered her daughter tips on how to cope in the public eye before the duo rose to fame earlier this year.

"She's really good at saying things like, 'Never have a drink when you do an interview' - which I don't always take notice of! And 'Only give away what you need to give away'," Jackson told Heat.

"And she says that if there's paparazzi, just give them a picture and they'll f**k off."

The 21-year-old added that she is grateful that the paparazzi has so far respected her privacy.

"I think I've probably been photographed twice," she said. "I feel like it's a massive achievement. I just don't think it's necessary for success to have pictures of you all over the place."

La Roux's new single 'I'm Not Your Toy' is out now.
