She came in for a fog of criticism last month for smoking round her son Winston – but it’s not been enough to make Billie Piper stub out her habit. The Secret Diary Of A Call Girl star, 27, couldn’t wait to spark up when she left Madonna’s 52nd party at London’s swanky Shoreditch House private members’ club on Saturday night.
Ms Piper was partying with her husband Laurence Fox, 32, alongside the Material Girl, her toyboy lover Jesus Luz, 23, and daughter Lourdes, 13.
But despite club possessing a smoking terrace on the roof, the actress and her Lewis star husband Laurence lit up their cigarettes hand-rolled with liqourice flavoured paper as they left in front of waiting photographers.
Others stars at the party included Paul Whitehouse, 52, and Claudia Winkleman, 38.
Partying parents Billie and Laurence meanwhile were up in good time yesterday to take their adorable two-year-old son Winston to the launch of In The Night Garden Live at London’s O2 Arena.
Former Doctor Who assistant Billie looked almost as pleased as her little boy to meet Igglepiggle, Makka Pakka and Upsy Daisy.
Other stars taking their children to meet their alarmingly-named TV favourites included Sherlock star Martin Freeman, Samantha Morton, EastEnders stars Jo Joyner, Jake Wood and Shane Richie, model Natalia Vodianova, former Footballers’ Wives star Laila Rouass, Mistresses’ Sharon Small and The Royle Family star Jessica Hynes.
The family day out was the polar opposited of Billie’s day job – playing a high-class prostitute.
She’s in the process of gearing up for the fourth and final season of the hit show, after she reportedly signed a £2 million deal to reprise her role as saucy Hannah Baxter.
The series will air on ITV2 in late January 2011.
