Supernanny star Jo Frost has said the new series of her show sees angry American families kicking her out of their homes.

The British star, who shot to fame with the Channel 4 show back in 2004, appeared on ITV chat show Lorraine today (20 July) to discuss her new series.

The new series of Supernanny, which airs on E4 on Monday night at 9pm, sees Frost helping American families struggling to discipline their children.

Chatting to Christine Lampard, who was standing in for Lorraine Kelly, Frost told how some families took exception to the advice she provided.

“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.”

SUPERNANNY - "Jeans Family" - "Supernanny" debuts, MONDAY, JANUARY 17 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the Walt Disney Television via Getty Images Television Network. The premiere, "Jeans Family," spotlights an active family of five in Denver, Colorado. David and Barbara Jeans waited 16 years into their marriage to have kids, and their three girls don't show any mercy on the middle-aged pair.  Andra, who is 4 1/2 years old, dominates the family with her selfish demands, tantrums, and violent outbursts that feature hitting and kicking anything and anyone in her way.  She is running the show and the rest of the Jeans are taking orders.  Three-year-old twin girls Jessie and Leah can't help but learn from their older sister.  Jessie has quickly picked up the aggressive behavior while Leah is a nonstop crier, weeping over every little thing.  Complicating things is David's job as a salesman, which takes him out of town for five days out of every month. The Jeans family needs an answer to their problems fast.  The solution:  Supernanny Jo Frost.  She will observe the Jeans and teach them how to deal with their issues.  Can Jo turn this family around?

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.
