Paul Daniels' son Paul Jr has denied Debbie McGee's claims that the pair have reconciled.

The late magician left the bulk of his estate to Debbie in his will and Paul Jr, one of three sons from his first marriage, claimed back in 2016 that she was a "false witch" who had gone back on a promise to "look after him".

In February, Debbie said she was planning to scatter Paul's ashes near her Berkshire home along with her late husband's sons and that "everything is good" between them now.

However, Paul Jr has now claimed the pair have not made peace. He told the Mirror: "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’."

Yahoo News UK has contacted a representative of Debbie's for comment.

Last month, the former Strictly star had told the publication: "Paul Jr. 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."

Seven months after his dad's death, Paul Jr claimed he was almost made homeless after Debbie sold the Wigan magic shop he worked at after setting it up with his father in 2007.

Speaking to The Sun at the time he branded Debbie as a "jumped-up dancer with no talent".

Paul and Debbie, who had worked as his assistant, were married for a total of 28 years until his death from cancer in 2016 aged 77.

This week marked the fifth anniversary of the star's passing.

The widow shared a tribute to her late husband as she wrote: "Five years ago today I lost this wonderful man. Gosh how I miss the joy he gave me. A day didn’t go by without laughter.

"Huge love to his Sons & Grandchildren ❤️❤️❤️."

The Middlesborough born star was first married to Jacqueline Skipworth, with whom he shared sons Paul Jr, Gary, and Martin.
