“I can think of several times I was actually kicked out of the house. They didn’t want me there. They got very hostile and aggressive and asked me to leave.

“The truth can be very painful for a lot of families, yet it does set you free if you can surrender to the process.”

Though Supernanny usually sees Frost helping parents struggling with younger children, this series will see her offering American families advice on how to handle older children.

In an interview with American publication Good Housekeeping, she said of the new series:  "My style is still very direct, and very caring.

"I nurture a family, and support them emotionally through the transition. That certainly hasn't changed, because it's worked for 30 years, being able to do that with family.

“Certainly, new challenges present the opportunity for me to look at different ways to help. That means different advice, different techniques, it means certainly different tools to go in that toolbox."

Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
