Traditionally when a rich successful husband leaves his wife for a woman almost half his age, his family are - to put it mildly - unlikely to wish him well.

And so it was, when eminent surgeon Prof Basil Ammori, 53, broke up with GP Almira Al-Abadi after 26 years of marriage then set up home with single mother Hayley Pritchard, 30, the move led to a bitter feud with his three children.

But after a series of text messages, a violent confrontation ensued on the doctor's doorstep in Altrincham, Greater Manchester when Ammori's daughter Huda, 22, turned up and began trading insults with her father.

Ammori - a Consultant Bariatric and Laparoscopic surgeon based at Salford Royal Hospital who carried out a stomach operation for the hit Channel 4 TV show Embarassing Bodies - screamed "wild bitch" as he ranted about his former wife also 53, as Huda labelled Miss Pritchard a 'wild whore.'

A medical tribunal heard the argument erupted into violence when the surgeon grabbed economics student Huda by the neck, punched her in the face and threatened to kill her.

The alleged attack left Huda with mild concussion and she underwent x-rays in hospital complaining of head aches and neck pain. She later developed problems with her eyesight amid fears she had a detached retina.

Police arrested Ammori over the incident but took no further action against him.

He was later reported to the General Medical Council and this week at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester Huda relived the bust up with her father - and revealed her anger towards his new partner whom he has since married.

Ammori denies wrongdoing.

Cavendish Press' coverage of the hearing - which continues - featured in the Daily Mail, Daily Mirror, Daily Express, The Sun and The Times and a range of other newspapers and websites.
