Singer Myleene Klass has written a scathing retort after receiving a “bonkers” email from school mothers suggesting parents donate money to buy their children birthday gifts including a Kindle.

The Classic FM presenter posted two emails received “from some school mums” on her Instagram account, shortly before displaying her own tongue-in-cheek reply.

The 36-year-old mother-of-two described as “madness” the messages detailing the parents’ preferences for “a class gift for their daughters this year” – namely a desk and a Kindle.

The group mail suggests a donation of £10 each, adding that there is no obligation to join in.

The former Hear’Say singer who lives in north London entitled her reply “Let’s put the fun back into Bdays!” and suggested her daughter Ava might like a Unicorn as her birthday gift.

She added that money could be donated at fictitious site www.getwhatyouregivenandendthismadness.com.

Klass was roundly praised for her reply, with many followers saying the email demands were “crazy” and hitting out at so-called pushy parents.

Last month the father of a five-year-old boy criticised a mother who sent him an invoice for failing to give notice that his son wouldn’t be attending her child’s birthday party.

Derek Nash said his son Alex was invited to a party just before Christmas at a dry ski slope in Plymouth, Devon.

But after his son did not go to the event, the birthday boy’s mother sent him an invoice for £15.95 saying that Mr Nash had left her out of pocket and had not informed her that Alex would not be attending.

While Mr Nash said he did not have contact details for the boy’s mother, she said in a statement that all details had been on the party invite.
