But now, Julia has hit back and accused Nadia of telling "lies" and called out her "fake tears" on the show.

She wrote on Twitter on Wednesday: "So tired of #nadiasawalha talking about our ‘stormy’ relationship which she created.

"I've kept my privacy for 6 years to protect my family, whilst she talks lies & rubbish.

"You have destroyed our family so don’t sit on TV with your fake tears to gain sympathy & attention."

The former Absolutely Fabulous star added in a separate tweet: "It’s very difficult when you only see the story from one side.

You have destroyed our family so don’t sit on TV with your fake tears to gain sympathy and attention.

"I’m not actually fighting, she is, but paints a very different picture publicly and I’ve had enough."

It comes days after Nadia spoke about her relationship with her sisters on the daytime show.

Nadia opened up about her life as part of Loose Women's new segment, Life Before Loose, where the show will "dig deep" into the lives of those who have been part of the programme for a while to mark 20 years of it being on air.

Nadia said: "Me and my eldest sister Dina were very, very close growing up and then my mum got pregnant with Julia.

"She then had her and I was the classic sibling, wanting to stick bottles in her mouth and wanting to look after her.

"My mum freaked out and sent me away to my grandmother's. I think because of that, my younger sister and I have always had a really stormy relationship."

Nadia added: "She's totally amazing," as she began to tear up before adding: "That took me by surprise."

Composing herself, Nadia continued: "We've always had a really volatile relationship. We've always had periods of time in our lives where we don't speak.

"I always say I have the worst time or the best time of my life with her."
