Speaking up in her defence of her nan – who is also grandmother to her brother Joey and TOWIE star cousins Chloe, Frankie and Demi Sims – Frankie reached out on social media after drawing a blank with other methods of communication.

The upset star wrote: ‘Can’t believe @RedbridgeLive have ignored that fact that my Nan has no heating for over 4 WEEKS!!!!!! It’s vile she’s 82 years old!’

When told by a representative to get in touch if she’s had any issues reporting the problem, Frankie then tweeted: ‘I have messaged If you had looked at the previous messages this isn’t the first time she has been left without gas and central heating.’

In response to another message informing her they’ll chase up the issue, Frankie hit out once again, ranting: ‘Yes it’s been reported I was on hold for 40 mins yesterday and today and haven’t got anywhere.

‘How can a 82 year old lady be left without hot water and central heating when the temperatures are this low!’

Redbridge council blamed a ‘higher than usual volume of call-outs’ and since learning the boiler was broken, have arranged for a new one to be fitted for Linda.
