Betty became a sensation on the internet with fans branding her a “granny warrior” and the “legendary granny” after she had fans in hysterics for waving her walking stick to defend herself.

Jeremy explained that Lucy holds Tracy “responsible” for Betty’s death.

As Tracy walked out onto the stage she opened up about her mum’s death.

She told the host: “I stepped up and moved in with her August last year and became mum’s carer.

“She had a leg amputated two years ago and then sadly she passed away.”

Lucy was on the show to accuse her mum of being “the worst mum” ever and only caring for Betty “to get hold on her money”.

Tracy hit back labelling her daughter a “prostitute” and then accused her of “robbing off my mum”.

She then started a row with Lucy’s ex partner, who was in the audience, calling him Lucy’s “pimp”.

Lucy then came out on stage and confronted her mum.

She shouted: “You’re dead to me, I don’t want anything to do with you!”

Turning to Jeremy, 52, Lucy added: “She’s never been a mother to me.”

She went on to insist that she looked after her nan Betty up to her death and not Tracy.

Lucy accused her mum of “abusing” Betty for her money.

Tracy was quick to hit back at her daughter’s claims saying: “I never hit my mum.”

Breaking up the heated row Jezza paid a heartfelt tribute to Betty.

He said: “This woman was unbelievable. One of my favourite guests of all time.

The show then played a clip of Betty on the show as her daughter and granddaughter watched on.

After the video Lucy broke down in tears.

Jeremy added: “She loved you both. What would she be thinking right now? To think that you two are on this program again screaming insults against each other.

“Why can’t you draw a line in the sand in memory of that lady?”

The pair then agreed to discuss their issues with each other off camera as they left the stage together.
