Richard Keys' sister brands his former wife 'delusional' in fierce Twitter tirade saying SHE was the one who helped unfaithful presenter over emergency heart op after ex slammed him on TV

  • Susan Keys branded ex sister-in-law Julia 'delusional' in a series of online posts
  • Julia gave her account of Keys' affair during TV interview on ITV's This Morning
  • She claimed to have nursed the TV presenter back to health after a heart attack
  • Susan called Julia's account 'a lie', that she 'swanned around Royal Ascot' instead

The sister of football presenter Richard Keys is at the centre of a bitter online feud with his ex wife.

Susan branded her sister-in-law Julia Keys as 'delusional' after she gave an interview promoting her new book on cheating husbands called The MANscript, where it was also revealed that he was still in a relationship with Lucie Rose.

Julia said she was left shattered after her husband, 60, left her for lawyer Lucie, a woman 31 years younger than him and a friend of their daughter Jemma.

Last year, Keys revealed he had cheated death after having a heart attack while back in the UK, and had to have emergency surgery to clear a blocked artery.

Julia, who was married to Richard for 36 years before they split, said she had nursed him after he posted a dramatic picture of himself attached to tubes lying in hospital.

In a tirade, Susan wrote on Twitter: 'So many lies by Julia Keys in her latest attempt to publicise her ridiculous book I hardly know where to start to put the record straight.

'I took Richard into hospital while she heartlessly swanned around at Royal Ascot I stayed with him throughout #lieslies.'

She added: 'Some people may say I hate my ex sister-in-law Julia Keys not true I pity her she's delusional.'

'Embarrassing her kids 90 per cent of what she says is a lie affairs happen she should know #getoverit'.

Earlier this year, Keys was pictured as he walked hand in hand across the beach with Lucie at a five-star hotel in Doha, where he now works as a TV presenter.

This Morning host Eamonn Holmes clashed with Julia when she appeared to discuss her book and he questioned her over a statement during a TV appearance on Friday. 

The father-of-two had previously admitted that he 'deeply regrets' his actions and would not have an affair should the opportunity arise again.

However, Eamonn demanded: 'Excuse me; is that really true because Richard is still with Lucie so he wouldn't be writing that?'

However, Julia fought back: 'No, he did Eamonn, that's 100 per cent true.'

After the interview, Susan wrote on Twitter: 'Eamonn Holmes is a legend. For once there was some balance when interviewing Julia Keys. Good job.'
