Big Reunion star Natasha Hamilton isn't sure she would be able to cope with her daughter Ella Rose following in her footsteps to become a singer.

Mum-of-four Natasha used to entertain the idea of her baby girl taking to the mic and entering the music biz.

But, having now seen Coronation Street's Kym Marsh and her daughter Emilie's experience on The Voice, the Atomic Kitten singer has said she has since changed her mind.

Earlier this month, viewers saw as Emilie performed during this year's blind auditions.

Following her performance of 'Clarity', all four coaches - Rita Ora, Sir Tom Jones, Ricky Wilson and - failed to turn their chairs, meaning the 16-year-old hadn't made it through to the next round of the competition.

Recalling Emilie's audition, Natasha told the Mail Online: "I was thinking it would be nice for Ella to follow in my footsteps, but when I saw none of the chairs turn around I looked at Ella and said 'please don't do that'."

Having been in the business for 15 years, the star knows all too well what the industry can be like.

Explaining the music business can be tough at times, she added: "The rejection is harsh... as a mother I don't know how I'd be able to cope with that. I'd like [Ella] to do it for fun, not professionally."

Although Natasha did insist she would still support her daughter if she was set on pursuing singing, she claimed she "wouldn't be a pushy mum".

Still, her worries are a long way off as Ella is only just four-months-old!

Back in September last year, Natasha gave birth to her first daughter and first child with partner Ritchie Neville. She has three sons already from previous relationships.

After reconnecting while both starring on the Big Reunion, the pair began dating and Natasha announced she was pregnant in April 2014.

Since their little girl's arrival, Natasha and the 5ive singer have been doting on Ella, with Ritchie recently admitting his daughter has "completely melted him".
