Why were Debbie and Paul Jr at odds?

The feud between the two is said to have started when Debbie sold Paul’s magic shop in Wigan after he died.

Paul Jr lashed out at Debbie seven months after his father’s death and accused her of leaving him homeless.

The star’s son, now aged 61, was also reportedly furious after he didn’t receive a penny from his dad’s estate.

It was claimed that he left Paul Jr out of his will because he feared his son would “squander” the money on booze.

At the height of the bitterness, Debbie claimed that Paul Jr threatened to “hit” her.

“I miss him every day”

Back in 2018, Debbie paid tribute to her late husband on what would have been their 30th wedding anniversary.

Tweeting out a snap from their wedding, she said: “30 years ago today I married this amazing man.

“Still miss him every day.”
