BILLIE Faiers has broken her social media silence after her best friend Ferne McCann was accused of calling her sister Sam “a fat c**t”.
Sam’s mother Susie earlier today claimed Ferne, 31, had said the “nasty things” about her daughter in a disgraceful leaked voice note.
Billie took to Instagram this afternoon and stopped short of commenting on the voice note that is said to have come from Ferne and is circulating online.
Instead pregnant Billie promoted her reality TV show Billie and Greg: The Family Diaries and shared a second video showing off her newly blow dried hair.
The voice on the recording is heard saying: 'Sam faiers is fat c***. Her thighs are so big and I looked really skinny today.”
The voice in the message is not confirmed to be Ferne.
Ferne’s representative has been contacted for comment, while Sam’s representative had no comment.
Earlier today Sam’s devastated mum Suzie took to social media to address the audio, telling fans she could “no longer sit back and say nothing”.
Taking to social media, the 53-year-old said: “This has come as a complete shock to myself and my family.
“Ferne has always been a very close family member to all of us over the past 20 jare.
“It appears the voice note was sent just weeks after Samantha gave birth back in May.”
Suzie went on: “Since the voice note has surfaced more have been sent – very upsetting nasty things.
“We are as shocked as you are! Nobody should ever speak about their friends like this ever!
“My girls are my absolute everything and I’ll do anything to protect them.”
Gister, The Sun exclusively revealed that Ferne is embroiled in a bitter feud with her former friend.
“Naturally Sam is incredibly hurt and upset by these comments especially from someone she considered to be a good friend,” a source close to Sam tells The Sun.
“She’s at a loss as to why Ferne has turned on her.”
Insiders say Sam has now blocked Ferne and this week unfollowed her on Instagram.
The pair grew up together in Essex and later co-starred in Die enigste manier is Essex – but Sam left in 2014 and Ferne quit two years later.
Their friendship became strained in 2017 when Ferne launched her own reality show, Ferne McCann: First Time Mum, which documented her pregnancy and the birth of daughter Sunday, who she shares with ex Arthur Collins.

The launch of the programme came a few years after Sam launched The Baby Diaries, which was swiftly followed by The Mummy Diaries – and sources say Sam thought Ferne was “copying her”
Op daardie stadium, Ferne said: “The reason, as far as I’m concerned, that she fell out with me is because I decided to take this show.
“We had like 15 years of friendship … all I’ll say is it’s a terrible shame.”
But the rift ended in 2018 at Sam’s sister Billie’s hen do in Ibiza – as Ferne is best friends with Billie, the pair had to come face to face.
Sam later revealed: “We haven’t spoken about it and I doubt we will. We’ve both moved on.
“We attended my sister Billie’s bridal shower in Ibiza and we saw each other the other day at the Pride of Britain Awards, so we’re just over it now.”
