The heartbroken daughter of Dennis Waterman, Julia, has shared details of the tumultuous childhood she endured when her father moved between the women and the family.

This 43-year-old woman was one of two daughters of the actor later Minder – who died in May at the age of 74 and after a short battle with lung cancer.

He was diagnosed with the condition three months before his death – but Julia says she’s grateful for the time to properly reconcile with her father.

Julia explained that she was heartbroken when Dennis – who has been married four times – left her mother, actress Patricia Maynard, 80, and then married Rula Leska, 74, when she was 7 years old.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Julia paints a difficult and tumultuous childhood under the care of her father.

“Being with Dad and Rula is the Technicolor whirlwind of an experience with frenzied screaming battles,” she explains. If you’re a kid, they’re amazing.

“I heard Dad and Rula shouting at each other. Rula would go on a lot and he would say: ‘Stop it. Shut. I don’t want to hear this. ‘ Then he would leave the house.

“He will probably go to the golf course or anywhere. She hates that. Then there will be doors slamming in the early hours and the music will be playing very loud. “

She went on to explain that she hated her stepmother right away – and bit her one evening while she was reading a bedtime story to her.

Julia recalls: “It happened. I just remember Dad standing in front of me, saying ‘Why did you do that?’ I said: ‘I don’t like her.’ I have never regretted that. I really, really hate her. “

Julia – herself a failed actress who started her career in financial services – explains that she ‘drinked a lot’ during college and when her father and Rula divorced.

She told a friend at the time, “I feel like I’ve had my childhood stolen” – but was later encouraged when Dennis married his fourth wife, Pam Flint, who he remained married until his death last month.

Julia went on to explain that she was able to reconcile with Dennis following his diagnosis earlier in the year.

Dennis’ death was reported on 8 Mat, with a statement from his family saying: “We are deeply saddened to announce that our beloved Dennis, passed away peacefully at his home in London. Spain.
