It would normally be a time when a family unites to start planning the big day. But amid the excitement of Bindi Irwin and Chandler Powell’s engagement comes the sad news that not everyone is celebrating their upcoming nuptials.
New Idea has learnt exclusively that Bob Irwin – father of Crocodile Hunter Steve – has reignited a longrunning family feud by refusing to extend his well-wishes to his estranged granddaughter and future grandson-in-law.
