Sam and Billie Faires ‘devastated’ as beloved grandad dies just weeks after nan

Billie and Sam Faires have been left "devastated" following the news that their grandfather, Mick, has died, less than two months after they lost their Nanny Wendy.

Mick is believed to have passed away this week after enduring a long battle with cancer.

A source claims that the sisters who found fame on ITVBe's The Only Way Is Essex are heartbroken after saying goodbye to their grandad.

Speaking to the MailOnline, an insider close to Sam and Billie said: "The girls have been grieving the loss of their nan and now that their grandad has passed away in such short space of time,

"The girls are absolutely heartbroken and devastated."

Samantha, 30, and Billie, 31, had a close relationship with their grandparents and took to social media to share a family photograph as they celebrated the return of their hit ITVBe show, The Mummy Diaries.

Their beloved grandfather could be seen smiling towards the camera as he was surrounded by his famous family including his late wife, Wendy and Sam and Billie's mum Suzie.

"My mum idolised my daughters as she did all of her grandchildren. She thought of Suzanne as a daughter, they were very close.
