After she missed last week’s episode of Dancing On Ice following the death of her Nanny Wendy, Billie Faiers has shared an emotional tribute to her.
The mum-of-two, who has started renovation plans on her new home, took to her Instagram feed to share a video of her beloved Nanny Wendy singing while on holiday.
The 31 year old penned: “My beautiful nanny wendy,” with a red heart emoji.
“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.”
Billie 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,” she concluded.
After Nanny Wendy’s tragic death, the reality star took a break from Dancing On Ice last weekend so she could grieve for her grandmother.
A spokesperson confirmed to OK! Online: “Sadly due to a family bereavement this week Billie Shepherd is taking a break from the ice and won’t be on Sunday’s show.
“We look forward to her returning next week and send her all of our love at this sad time.”
Nanny Wendy was 77 and had been diagnosed with pneumonia, which came as a shock to Billie and sister Sam.
A source told MailOnline: “The girls are completely devastated. They were very close with their Nan and her passing has come as a complete shock to the family.
The publication also reported that they have taken time out from filming The Mummy Diaries as they mourn.
Billie, who recently celebrated her birthday, was super close to her nan and often posted pictures with her on her social media accounts.
She was the mum of her biological father Lee Faiers.
