The former Big Brother host has previously been open about her close relationship with grandmother. She was raised by her paternal grandparents after her parents split at the age of three.

Of her rocky relationship with her own mother, Davina previously said on Jonathan Ross: "She was incapable of mothering so I was always trying to get her to do motherly things. But it never quite happened and it left me yearning for more all the time.

"I was so confused, I didn't know how to be around her but I worshipped her and I know she loved me too but not in a conventional way."
