Magician Paul Daniels' son hits out at Debbie McGee amid £1.5m inheritance feud

PAUL Daniels' son has hit out at Debbie McGee amid their £1.5m inheritance feud.

Debbie, who was married to the magician for 28 years before his death in 2016, has been branded "jumped-up" and a "false witch" by her stepson.

Paul Jnr, 61, has lashed out at Debbie after she said the pair had "made peace" following their very public feud and his claims she'd cut him out of his famous father's £1.5m estate.

In a recent interview, Debbie, 62, revealed the family's plan to reunite to scatter Paul Snr's ashes to mark the fifth anniversary of his death and the former ballerina insisted: "Paul Jnr will be invited and everything is fine between us now."

But in a new chat with The Mirror, his son retorted: "First I’ve heard of it.

"She doesn’t have my phone number, email or address so how is she going to invite me?

"It’s just more of, ‘Look how nice I am’."

He went on: "I’m sure if we had made up she would have allowed me to have a memento of dad, which she hasn’t, not even a pair of cufflinks."

Paul Snr died of a brain tumour in 2016 at the age of 77, and Paul Jnr lashed out at Debbie seven months later.

He accused her of leaving him homeless after she sold his dad's magic shop in Wigan after she inherited it from her husband.

The Sun revealed at the time that Paul had been left furious that he didn't receive a penny of his dad's estate.

She also explained that Paul was left out of his dad's will because Paul Snr feared he'd squander the money on booze.

Paul Jnr is one of the magic man's three sons from his first marriage to Jacqueline Skipworth.

Debbie famously worked as Paul Snr's assistant in his magic shows.

The former ballerina has since appeared on a range of reality shows including Celebrity MasterChef and Strictly Come Dancing.

But Paul Jnr slammed her decision to appear in a kitchen TV ad using camera tricks.

"My father never used camera tricks," he commented. "So I think that she’s being disrespectful to him by doing it."

He complained: "I know that if my dad was still alive she would not have been allowed to do the Kitchen Magic TV ad.

"The only person she cares about is Debbie McGee."

Debbie is yet to respond to Paul Jnr's latest comments.
