The teen daughter of a BBC star has been expelled from boarding school after allegedly being found with drugs.

Sources close to the family told The Sun, the girl got into the party scene during the summer holidays and did not settle down in time for the new term.

According to the Mirror, staff at the unnamed school – which charges £20,000 a year for fees – found drugs in her possession.

The parents, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were told of the findings over Zoom and asked to pick her up the following day.

The source said: “The celebrity mum is disappointed and upset as she loved the school and has an incredibly busy work schedule.

“Both parents begged to let her stay but the head has a one strike and you’re out policy.

“It’s a shame as she was popular and bright even if she was distracted by extra-curricular activities.

"The star had her own issues with partying so doesn’t blame her. She just doesn’t want her to throw her opportunities away.”

The girl's parents are understood to be keen to find another school for their daughter as soon as possible.

Earlier this year, former BBC radio producer Alexander Parkin befriended clients from his interior design business and sold drugs to them at sex parties, a court heard.

The famous voice from Radio 3's show Late Junction, won nine Sony awards for his work.

The 45-year-old was first convicted of drug dealing back in 2016 and admitted selling GBL to celebrity barrister Henry Hendron after the death of Hendron's boyfriend Miguel Jimenez, 18.

Hendron was sentenced to 140 hours of unpaid work after pleading guilty to possession with intent to supply.

Parkin also faced a trial in 2017 over claims he had been selling crystal meth, ecstasy and 'liquid ecstasy' GBL from his Marylebone flat, but was cleared.
