It is unclear whether Georgia referred to her maternal or paternal grandmother, whom neither of them has mentioned publicly.

In August last year, Georgie went to Instagram to scare the social media giant up and write: & # 39; Shocked and disgusted by this scam, using my image to endorse a face cream, under the guise of a news story. & # 39;
