Debbie McGee ‘makes peace’ with Paul Daniels’ son after five-year family feud

Debbie McGee has made peace with her late husband Paul Daniels' eldest son after their furious feud over the magician's estate.

The 62-year-old radio performer and ex-ballerina confirmed the pair have made up five years after their bitter row.

Paul Daniels Jnr had accused his stepmum of cheating him out of his father's £1.5million inheritance.

At the time, he called her "a false witch" and "a jumped-up dancer with no talent".

In a recent interview with the Sunday Mirror, Debbie spoke about paying tribute to her late husband five years after his death, and revealed Paul Jnr will be invited.

She told the publication: "I'm planning to scatter some of Paul's ashes near here because he loved the water – and I would like to get a plot in the local church. It will be a nice way to mark the five years.

"Paul Jnr will be invited and everything is fine between us now. He was always a naughty boy!

"Of course what he said was hurtful so soon after his dad died, but I don't hold grudges.

"He was obviously in extreme grief as well and took it out on me, but everything is good now."

Paul Jnr, 61, lashed out at Debbie in October 2016, just seven months after his father had died of a brain tumour aged 77.

He accused Debbie of leaving him homeless by closing The Paul Daniels Magic Party Shop in Wigan, which he ran.

Debbie said: "He's got a job and he's pulled himself together. I just wish his dad was here to see it.

"He's managed to pick up the pieces and that's good."

Debbie was married to magician legend Paul for 28 years and was left devastated after his tragic death.

She was Paul's stage assistant for a decade before they tied the knot, and required counselling after he passed away.

However, Debbie told the publication she's now reached a happy place.

Debbie hasn't had a relationship with anyone since Paul, but has said she "could definitely see" herself "finding love again now".
