Mark Wright will "never get over" his grandmother's passing.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star was present last week when 80-year-old Pat Brooker, known on the ITVBe show as Nanny Pat, was laid to rest and admits the family is still coming to terms with their loss.
He told the Sun Online: "You know, life moves on. We're still very upset, I always will be. I'll never get over what's happened. But she'll always be remembered and I love her very much.
"It meant a lot to me that everybody was there and my nan was a very loved lady. She was very nice to everybody she ever met, so the fact there was such a big turn out just proved the special person she is."
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old television personality - who is married to former 'Coronation Street' beauty Michelle Keegan - previously admitted he was heartbroken at the news.
He wrote on Twitter: "My heart is broken but so overwhelmed by your support. To know good ole Nanny was loved by so many is the best feeling in the world Thankyou (sic)."
Whilst sister Jess, 30, added: "Heart broken does not even come close to how my family & I are feeling. Thank you so much for your support my Nan was so loved an angel (sic)."
