Katie Perrior claims women should hire men or ugly women as nannies to avoid cheating partners

Jane McCartney says nannies hired for childcare sometimes have an agenda

Katie Perrior has suggested that women hiring nannies should choose men or an "ugly one" in an attempt to stop their partners cheating on them.

Her comments came after Dr Ichak Kalderon Adizes claimed men often become attracted to the nanny looking after their children as they're naturally attracted to the carer of their children.

He claims this is because they serve them and look after their bloodline, rather than their wife who is probably focused on a career.

Psychologist Jane McCartney told Mike Graham and Katie Perrior that she doesn't think the idea is wrong "but there’s also plenty of blokes who have got together with people who’ve they’ve been in relationships with in offices."

Therefore it's more about "the exposure [to that person], you get to know somebody."

She also said that some nannies have an agenda, particularly if the man is rich or handsome, and Katie suggested families should "hire a guy or get an ugly one" as a nanny, and in fact she'd pay twice the price for someone who fits their description..

But Mike asked whether it could simply be that men like to have more than one relationship, prompting McCartney to ask whether this was his "personal experience."

Mike claimed it was his "personal experience of an awful lot of men" and he was free to stereotype men as, well, he is a man.

The psychologist said: "I think deep down, scratch the surface and you’ll find a lot of blokes that flip from a relationship to a relationship to get their egos pumped have got chronically low self-esteem."
