Sam Faiers Breaks Silence Over 'War Of Words' With Ferne McCann
Earlier this week, it was reported that Essex besties Sam Faiers and Ferne McCann had become embroiled in a 'bitter feud'.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said: "Their fallout first started when Ferne told Sam that she had landed her own pregnancy reality show.
"Sam felt like Ferne was trying to emulate her success by launching a rival programme - and it made things awkward between them."
The source added: "Ferne was never going to turn down the show as it was an opportunity for her to make money for Sunday but without Sam's support the breakdown of their friendship was inevitable."
The same publication also claimed that Ferne had been left 'hurt' over reports that Sam had apparently warned her off ex Arthur Collins months before he carried out an acid attack in an Essex nightclub.
"A close friend of Ferne's has said how devastated she is over the reports that Sam warned Ferne off Arthur," said a source, reported The Sun.
They continued: "She never did, that conversation never took place. They were still friends way after Arthur was off the scene - Sam was at Ferne's birthday party in August and she posted a picture of her and Ferne on Instagram.
"Ferne feels hurt that Sam didn't come out and set the record straight."
However, according to OK! Online, a representative for Sam has now rubbished the reports, and claims that there is no truth behind rumours of a fallout.
Earlier this week, Ferne came under fire over a festive image of herself on Twitter.
Under the photo of herself looking snazzy in sparkles, she wrote: "Tis the season to wear sequins tra la la la la...."
Tis the season to wear sequins tra la la la la....:snowflake:- Ferne McCann (@fernemccann) December 18, 2017
However, the 27-year-old was met with criticism, as one follower tweeted back with a reference to ex Arhur Collins.
The response read: "Tiss the season for your boyfriend to be jailed for 20 years for throwing acid at my daughter & other innocent victims tra la la la la ....."
Ferne is yet to respond to the tweet.
