Bobby tweeted the sad news in response to a negative comment on Twitter [ITV]
Bobby Norris didn’t seem to be himself during Tuesday night’s episode of Celebs Go Dating — and viewers noticed.
Taking to Twitter, one unimpressed viewer tweeted the reality star, saying: “@BobbyCNorris is being a bit rude on #CelebsGoDating … interested or not no need for rudeness #cringing”.
Bobby quoted the negative tweet, and responded with: “My grandad had just died..”, to the shock of his fans.

To add insult to injury, another, unsympathetic fan tweeted back to Bobby’s sad admission with: “Maybe shoulda took a day off then!”.
Bobby once again quoted this new, insensitive tweet, and added: “Unfortunately TV doesn’t work like that”.
The tweets have now been deleted, but not before some caring fans reacted to Bobby’s unfortunate news with messages of support.
