Sam and Billie Faiers are said to be ‘absolutely heartbroken’ following the death of their beloved granddad Mick.
The Towie star sisters’ grandfather died on Wednesday following a long battle with cancer, just six weeks after the death of their Nanny Wendy.
A source told the MailOnline: ‘The girls have been grieving the loss of their nan and now that their grandad has passed away in such short space of time, the girls are absolutely heartbroken and devastated.’
Sam and Billie are yet to speak out on the news.
After losing their grandmother in January, Sam penned a heartfelt tribute and wrote in her Instagram stories: ‘Nanny Wendy, a week today the lord called you home to heaven. I will love you forever nan, you was such a huge inspiration to Billie and I.
‘From day one we was your “Miss Worlds” you spoke positivity over us our whole life. You loved us unconditionally. You truly was the best nan ever.
‘I can hear your voice everyday, ‘hello my darling, how are you’. You would call us almost everyday for a chat, you would come to all the parties and events with us, I have thousands of special memories with you, nan you are a legend [sic].’
The Mummy Diaries star continued: ‘I’m so blessed that I had you in my life, you was infectious, everyone loved you.
‘I will continue to make you proud nannny. Until we meet again.. for a “coffee and doughnut” or a “Pína colada” [sic].’
Billie shared her own tribute alongside a video of Nanny Wendy doing karaoke and said: ‘I struggle to understand why you have been taken from us so soon.
‘All I can hold onto in my heart are the many amazing memories with you nanny and this one has to be one of my favourites that I will cherish forever ❤️ Here you are in the Maldives just 2 days before my wedding, singing your favourite song, only you could capture a crowd like this my precious nanny wendy ❤️’
The mum-of-two continued: ‘I am so grateful I had you in my life for 31 years, you have been the most encouraging, loving, funniest, one of a kind, special nanny that we could ever wish for…
‘Your “Miss worlds” you would always call Samantha and I, I know how proud of us you are, you told us every day. I miss you terribly and I’m heartbroken. I will love you forever and ever ❤️.’
Billie was forced to miss episodes of Dancing On Ice due to bereavement after Nanny Wendy’s death, before being forced to leave the show completely after suffering concussion.
