Anthea Turner’s sister has opened up about the family rift

Anthea Turner’s younger sister has opened up for the first time about the rift with the former Blue Peter star – after not speaking to one another for almost two years.

Wendy Turner Webster, best known as a presenter on Channel 4’s Pet Rescue, is said to have borrowed a substantial amount of money from the former GMTV host.

And now Wendy, 51, has claimed the feud with Anthea, 58, which reportedly began after the tens of thousands of pounds was loaned, drove her ‘to the edge of’.

She told the Mirror: ‘I’m profoundly hurt my own sister could behave in a way that has taken me to the edge.

‘It’s why I’ve had to cut all ties with Anthea – and it gives me no pleasure to have to say that in public.’

Anthea’s sister has also claimed her poor credit rating means that until recently her family has been living in a West London Travelodge.

Yet a close friend of Anthea’s told the publication that she would be ‘devastated’ to hear ‘Wendy’s twisted version’ of events ‘when she has consistently supported Wendy financially over decades’.

The friend added: ‘Their elderly parents will be heartbroken to read Wendy’s twisted version after ­everything Anthea has done to help.’

Anthea’s team declined to comment when asked by the Mirror. MailOnline has contacted representatives.

The veteran presenter lent a large amount of money to Wendy and her husband Gary Webster, while the former Minder actor waited for his pay from a business deal, the publication reported.

Yet when the commission – now the subject of impending legal action – reportedly didn’t arrive when expected, the couple had to borrow more from other family and friends to keep themselves afloat.

Earlier this month it was reported that Anthea had ‘furiously cut all contact’ with her younger sister after she was allegedly forced to pay £5,000 in debt for the couple after they ran into difficulty paying rent for a home in West London.

A friend of Anthea’s told The Sun on Sunday that the former GMTV host had decided ‘enough was enough’.

The source told the newspaper that she had ‘snapped’ and ‘severed all ties’ amid the family feud.

They said: ‘She has helped Wendy and Gary out endlessly over the years, and propped them up financially time and time again.’

It is reported she had acted as a guarantor for the couple and ended up having to pay after a county court ruling.
