Janet Street-Porter blasted Romeo Beckham's first ever Vogue cover.

Proud mum Victoria Beckham, 46, was ecstatic when her son, 18, graced the cover of the fashion magazine this week.

It was Romeo's first solo L'Uomo Vogue magazine cover.

But Loose Women's Janet, 74, slammed the famous offspring's efforts when she fuelled the heated discussion on Wednesday's panel.

In an impassioned spiel, the journalist spat: "The kids of famous parents have it easy".

She said: "Well, isn't it a lot easier if your mum and dad are both well known. Both your mum and dad have been themselves on the covers of thousands of magazines.

"Watching this programme there will be plenty of men who would like to be on the cover of a magazine but they've got to start at the bottom.

"The kids of famous parents have it easy."

Of course Romeo's parents Victoria and David have had their faces plastered across lots of magazines during their high-flying careers.

Janet dealt a blow when she claimed Romeo only landed the gig because of his parents.

She added: "You can't tell me they put him on the cover because he's any old joe. He's on there because of his famous parents. Advertisers want that famous connection."

However, the Loose Women panel weren't all in agreement.

On the other hand, Brenda Edwards insisted modelling and posing up a storm was "hard work".

The Loose Women star, 52, asked everyone to give Romeo "credit" for modelling and being successful at it.

She said: "It's hard work to do something like that. Got to give him credit for doing that and being successful.

"You can be crap and rubbish at doing it. More important to support your children."

It comes after Victoria gushed over her son when he landed his first Vogue cover.

She wrote: "Proud of you @RomeoBeckham."
