• Steve Irwin’s father, Bob, hasn’t been back to Australia Zoo in more than ten years, after ‘an explosive feud’ with daughter-in-law, Terri.

The 77-year-old conservationist, who started the animal park with his first wife in 1970, revealed the astonishing fact to New Idea, as he opened up about his estrangement from his famous grandchildren, Bindi, 18, and Robert, 13.
