The protective father of five has revealed he keeps a watchful eye over Poppy, 16, and 15-year-old Daisy with a live GPRS tracking app.

Jamie Oliver monitors the movements of his two eldest children using a smartphone app. 

He and wife Jules are also parents to Petal, nine, Buddy, seven, and 22-month old River Rocket.

Jamie revealed: “We used an app to keep track of our kids’ whereabouts.

“The older girls, Jools and I are all on an app called Life360, which means we can see exactly where everybody is and the route they’ve gone. 

He added to Woman magazine: “So if one of the girls says, 'I’m going to Camden Town' and I can see they’ve gone to Reading, then we have a problem. 

"They can check on me, too, and see how fast I’m driving. It’s brilliant.”
