Diana pushed her stepmother Raine Spencer down the stairs

Princess Diana's feud with her stepmother became so strained that she once pushed her down the stairs.

The countess' personal assistant has revealed that Diana (pictured left) even pushed Raine down the stairs after she went into a furious rage over lunch, leaving Raine covered in bruises. A documentary about their fragile relationship, Diana's Wicked Stepmother, airs tonight and reveals the extent of their fighting.
