Lily Allen has announced she’s ditching the Internet after spending a staggering seven hours per day on it.

The mother-of-two took to Instagram, ironically, to explain her decision, telling her followers in a video shared on Sunday night: “Guys I’ve got some sad news. Well it’s good for me… My sad news is that I’m on holiday and I have decided that when I get home, I am getting a burner and throwing away my iPhone.”

When one follower asked if she was drunk, Lily hit back: “I’m not wasted, I haven’t even had a drink, you fucking loser. Anyway I’m done with this dead arse app and Twitter and email and WhatsApp. All of it can go and suck its mum’s… I just wanted to let you know that.”

The Smile singer added she’s going to miss the “Taylor Swift, Scooter Braun, Kim Kardashian, Kayne West news” and the “dick pics”, and explained: “I’m going to miss it so much. But what I’m going to do is read some books and gain some knowledge. More knowledge because I have some. I’m going to miss everything. But not that much because if I was going to miss it that much then I wouldn’t give it up.

“But I do think, that shit has got pretty real recently. I don’t think sitting, staring at my phone for four hours a day, lie, seven hours a day is doing the world any good.”

The declaration drew mixed comments from her fans, with one telling the 34-year-old singer: “This is why I’m giving up the Internet. I don’t need this shit.”

She then showed fans her hair, which apparently had a few grey strands in it, and concluded: “That’s what the Internet has done to me. I care about the world and I care about creating things and I don’t really care about the validation that comes back any more. There was a time when I did but I think I’m too old for that now.”
