Myleene Klass reveals she saved both of her daughters from choking in terrifying incidents – ahead of release of new book on what to do in emergency situations

Myleene Klass has stressed the importance of teaching first aid in schools after saving both her daughters from choking.

The radio presenter, 44, recalled the moment she was caught off-guard when her daughter Ava, 14, choked on calamari while on holiday four years ago, and when Hero, 11, got a plastic star stuck in her throat when she was 18 months old.

Excerpts of her new book They Don’t Teach This At School were published in The Sun on Monday ahead of the tome’s release next Thursday, with the former Hear’Say star outlining the importance of basic survival skills in the text.

She wrote : ‘A couple of years ago we were relaxing on holiday and my defences were down, so when Ava started to choke on calamari I didn’t immediately realise.

‘Hero choked on a small plastic star when she was one and a half.’

The Smooth Radio host went on to describe the mechanics of what to do if someone is choking, and even shared a step-by-step guide to performing CPR.

Myleene’s book also touches on treating jellyfish stings and recognising the signs of a stroke.

She also reminds people to ‘stop, drop and roll’ if they become engulfed in flames, recalling the moment she jumped to the assistance of a woman when her hair extensions caught fire at the launch of one of her classical albums, and when the same happened to a member of a rival pop band at a nightclub.

The former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! campmate has also shared her advice in some handy video explainers on Twitter, recreating emergency scenarios with her children.

In a post to her 430,000 followers last month, Myleene spoke of the importance of being prepared for dangerous situations. 

She wrote: ‘Just found out we helped a Mother save her baby’s life yesterday after she watched our video on choking.

‘We are all feeling very emotional and relieved after hearing this news.

‘All my safety vids are on TikTok but going to post here too. My book contains all this information BUT *DISCLAIMER* This is a DEMONSTRATION. DO NOT attempt or try this on anyone that doesn’t require actual CPR.

‘Stay safe, informed and empowered.

‘NB. The rescue breaths are most relevant to children regarding CPR as the majority of accidents where this is required/used happens around water/pools.’

Myleene, who also shares Apollo, two, with beau Simon Motson, has been vocal about the importance of teaching first aid in schools in the past and was a part of an awareness campaign with St John Ambulance last year.
