Sam and Billie shared a snap of them ahead of the return of their ITVBe reality show The Mummy Diaries. The photo showed Mick wearing a red shirt with brown trousers as he was surrounded by the women in his life, who all wore matching pyjamas.
Sam, who recently surprised her kids with an amazing safari-themed sleepover in teepees, captioned it: “‘#MummyDiaires season finale TONIGHT! Big thank you to everyone who tuned in this series! We a had ball! Bring on series 7 @itvbe 9pm x (ps love u nanny & grandad) x “. [sic]
Just six weeks before, in late January, the sisters lost their beloved Nanny Wendy at the age of 77.
She had been diagnosed with pneumonia before her death, which had come as a complete “shock” to the sisters.
At the time, an insider had told the same publication: “The girls are completely devastated. They were very close with their Nan and her passing has come as a complete shock to the family.”
After her death, Sam paid a heartbreaking tribute as she posted a collage of photos on her Instagram with a message that read: “I will love you forever”.
Her sister Billie, who recently showed off her gorgeous early Mother’s Day surprise, had also shared a sweet tribute with a video of Wendy singing karaoke.
She captioned it: “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. [sic]
