Her father, called Leslie, does nothing in the footage other than holding the piece of footage in front of him.

Amanda put a ‘LOL’ sticker on her Instagram video and told fans, “That’s why I love my dad. He is crazy.

“I don’t know whether he’ll give up or see where the wind is blowing from!”

Amanda has become estranged from her biological father

Leslie is actually Amanda’s stepfather and is married to her beloved mother, Judith.

Her birth father left the family when she was just four years old.

In her 2013 autobiography, No Holding Back, Amanda wrote that his main focus in life is alcohol.

She said, “When he was home [he] spent all of his available money on alcohol, just focusing on where his next drink was coming from.

“Not only that, it was impossible to live with him in any way. He left the house for hours, often stayed outside all night and came back drunk the next day. “

He said that Daily mail: “It’s pretty obvious that I wasn’t a good father – which I regret.

“The stuff in the book was a long time ago and I would like it to be [Lexi and Hollie] and Amanda to spend time with me and get to know me now. “

He went on to explain that he no longer had a problem with drinking.

“Amanda didn’t physically lock me down, but it’s an unwritten rule because, as she says in her book, she never wants to talk to me again,” he said.
