The Chase star Anne Hegerty said she no longer speaks to her “Granny Smith” as she reflected on “hostile” behaviour from her in her younger years. The 63-year-old claimed “it was war” from the moment she and her nan laid eyes on each other.

“I think one problem is, her mother died when she was a baby,” Anne claimed.

“I think the reverberations of that has affected four generations of our family.”

The quizmaster said that her nan was brought up by “not very nice housekeepers” and claimed she “had an obsession with locking up little kids”.

Recalling one of her memories, she alleged that her nan once locked her in a room after telling her she hadn’t tidied up properly.

She claimed: “I was being a bit slow about putting things away, to this day I’m not very good at putting things away.

“I’m never sure where people want things put or in what order.”

Anne alleged that her nan and grandad held the door closed and told her she wasn’t going home unless she tidied up properly.

Eventually, she claims, her mum heard a banging noise from her pushing the door and got her out.

The Governess star also claimed that her nan had told her mum that she was going to lock her in a cupboard when she was naughty.

“I think because of what had happened to her, she kind of acted it out on all little girls,” she claimed adding that she always had a problem with the “littlest girl”.

“She had three daughters, so she took it out on mum until aunt Jill was born.”

Anne went on to say her family members had “different ways of dealing with it”.

The Chase star reflected on the memories as those she wanted to erase on Michael Fenton Stevens’ podcast My Time Capsule.

She went on to say: “I think something went horribly missing when she was a baby and she never managed to recover it.

“It’s quite possible that her hostility towards me probably didn’t last longer until childhood.

“We might have been friends in my teens if by then I hadn’t been so traumatised by her, but I just thought I don’t want anything further to do with her.”

Anne has a younger brother called Jon, who she appears to be close to.

She lost her mum before rising to fame on The Chase and her dad died back in 2017.

In 2018, she began fronting her own game show Britain’s Brightest Family. 

The Chase continues tomorrow at 5pm on ITV.
