He is the son of acclaimed BBC presenter Zoe Ball and DJ and record producer Fatboy Slim.

But Woody Cook, 20, has revealed that his parents have stopped giving him handouts, and he lives on such a tight budget that he struggles to afford bread.

The star’s parents Zoe Ball, 50, and Norman Cook, 58, are worth a staggering £ 35 million, but they are thought to have stopped giving their son cash, instead encouraging him to make his own money.

Woody told The Mirror at the Attitude Awards: ‘My parents have interrupted me completely. They are like, ‘Do you want to be a trust fund kid, or do you want to work?’ I want to work, so I am now self-sufficient, I do not have a student loan.

‘I do it all myself, the other day I could not afford bread, but I’m working on it.’

The Celebrity Gogglebox star said his parents made it clear that they both had to work their ‘asses’ for their success, which he has reaped the benefits of.

Woody, who competed on Channel 4’s The Circle and came in fifth place, has promised to earn his own way in the world, saying his parents have taught him not to trust other people.

Woody’s comments came after he glared at Wednesday’s Virgin Atlantic Attitude Awards, held at Camden’s Roundhouse earlier this week.

To make sure he lived up to the fun and fuss of the event, Woody wore a dazzling ball gown that scratched at graffiti while leading other partygoers to leave bash.

He was dressed to be impressed in the monochrome dress that featured black writing that scratched out over a white bottom, with a corseted texture, while assembling a handbag and a goodie bag.

Woody took out a show-stop display in the white dress as he twisted that way and that to show the dress in its entirety while giving a look at his coaches downstairs.

He seemed to borrow style tips from Harry Styles – another lover of androgynous looks – as he wore his hair in bouncy curls and had his wrist filled with bands from various festivals.

Woody hit screens earlier this year when he joined his famous mother on Celebrity Gogglebox, with the duo’s cheeky report winning legions of fans.

They let fans cringe after watching an episode of the popular Netflix show Too Hot To Handle Together – and things took an unpleasant turn when the conversation turned to masturbation.

One of the contestants made plans to break the rules of complacency on the show and relieve himself privately, while the reality star moaned that his ‘balls are in a terrible situation’.

When things were already awkward for Woody to watch the scenes with his mother, Zoe then made things worse by turning to him and saying, ‘In fact, he has not pleased himself for so long that his balls swell.’

Zoe then asked her son, ‘Are you going to empty them? I’m a girl I do not know. ‘

With Woody clearly embarrassed, she pressed on: ‘I know what if you do not empty them and then you are surrounded by girls like that, how painful would that be?’

Her devastated son replied, ‘what the hell?’ before he added: ‘Some people they do not have to do it. There are monks and stuff like that, they are celibate. ‘

When he wanted to quickly end the embarrassing chat, he then declared: ‘I do not know! I do not want this conversation with you! ‘

The hysterical exchange came after the host reunited with his son, who returned early with his girlfriend Amber from his year abroad due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The teenager left a break year back in January 2020 with plans to spend a year on global trot with Amber, but returned just months later in May because of Covid.

DJ Norman Cook – whose alter ego is Fatboy Slim – split with BBC Radio 2 host Zoe in September 2016 after 17 years of marriage.

The former couple who tied the knot at Babington House in Somerset in 1999 are also parents to daughter Nelly, 10.
