The world’s most famous Nanny, Mary Poppins, is furious at ‘Supernanny’ Jo Frost’s self imposed title and has challenged the childcare expert to a ‘nanny-off’.
‘Supernanny?’ said Poppins, ‘what does she know about nannying?’ ‘Does she carry a large bag around with her? If so, I’ve never seen her pull a single household object from it: not so much as an ironing board – doesn’t sound very super to me.’
Miss Frost has hit back by suggesting that Miss Poppins has had her time. ‘She needs to stop and think about what she’s saying. Nannying is no longer about Cockney’s dancing on rooftops – things have moved on. Perhaps some time on the naughty step would do her good .’
The two are set to have a nanny-off later in the year: starting with a thrilling airborne umbrella race and culminating with some sort of activity chart.
