The daughter of one of Britain's first gay dads has revealed her parents will spend £200,000 on Christmas gifts this year.

Saffron Drewitt-Barlow, 21, claims her dad Barrie, 51, is "crazy about Christmas" and always goes "over the top" during the festivities.

It comes after Barrie split from husband Tony, 55, last year and got engaged to Saffron's ex-boyfriend Scott Hutchison, 25.

Bisexual Scott and Barrie, from Manchester, welcomed a baby back in September, a daughter named Valentina.

Now the daughter of the gay dads Saffron has revealed the family's mega Christmas plans this year.

Firstly, there will be a custom-made Bentley supercar under the tree, while Barrie purchased a Range Rover for Scott.

She told Closer magazine: "In total, dad and daddy will spend about £200,000 on everyone's gifts.

"Valentina isn't even one yet but she'll be getting a custom made baby white Bentley.

"For my first Christmas I got a baby Mercedes so it's a bit of a tradition in our family.

"Dad and Scott are also going to invest in some diamond rings and put them in a safety deposit for her when she's older."

Saffron lives with Barrie, Scott, dad Tony, twin Aspen and her younger siblings Orlando, 17, twins Jasper and Dallas, 10, and Valentina.

The family are currently based in their £6 million 10-bedroom mansion in Florida, US.

She said her household always looks forward to the festivities and begin planning the big day in October.

They also splash heaps of money on Champagne and food, spending around £50,000 on their Christmas "prep".

On Christmas, the family's dinner will be cooked by a team of professional chefs, and the clean-down is managed by the housekeeper.

Saffron understands most families can't spend anywhere near what they do and they try to give back by donating food and blankets.

She added: "Dad talks about how he grew up with no money, so he goes over the top to make sure we have the best Christmas ever

"We know how lucky we are, especially when so many are struggling financially due to the pandemic."
