The message here is 'They couldn't have known!'.
...Louella's parents — the actor John Michie, who plays neurosurgeon Guy Self in BBC hospital drama Holby City, and his partner, former Hot Gossip dancer Carol Fletcher — weren't unduly concerned.
Their bubbly, but sensible, yoga-instructor daughter might have experimented on occasion, but she had what they described as a 'cautious' and 'measured' attitude towards illegal substances.
Besides, Louella was with her boyfriend, aspiring musician Ceon Broughton, whom John and Carol had welcomed into their family over the course of his 15-month on-off relationship with Louella.
Broughton had spent Christmas at the Michies' £1.2 million home in North London, worked with Louella's brother Sam and had been a guest at John's 60th birthday dinner. There was no reason to believe he didn't have their daughter's best interests at heart.Really?
...John and Carol were quick to defend him, despite their grief and rumours that Broughton — who had a previous conviction for supplying drugs — may be implicated in her death.
He had received a suspended sentence for two counts of carrying knives just a month earlier.Yes, clearly they had no reason to suspect a drug-dealing rapper who carried knives...
