Linda and Pauline – who played Tracey Stubbs and Sharon Theodopolopodous – have been friends for more than 50 years and starred together in 12 series and two Christmas specials of Birds of a Feather.

But Pauline was absent from the 2020 Birds of a Feather special – sparking rumours of a fallout.

Thrilling fans by showing they’ve made-up, Linda cuddled up to pals Lesley and Pauline for lunch in London’s Covent Garden.

She wrote on Instagram: “A lovely lunch with my beautiful friends in the @thedelaunay.”

The Sun previously revealed the co-stars suffered several backstage barneys before Pauline was “snubbed” from the reunion.

A source close to Linda said the atmosphere on set between Pauline and the cast became more hostile.

The source said: “The nadir came during one astonishing row at Teddington Studios, culminating in Pauline and Lesley squaring off.

“They were basically pulled apart by stunned crew members. Things went rapidly downhill from there.”

Linda explained that she and Lesley, who starred as Dorian Green, weren’t ready to stop filming despite Pauline’s being missing from the show.

Speaking out about her relationship with Pauline previously, Linda shrugged off suggestions they’d stopped speaking.

Instead she insisted Pauline was busy focusing on her work with The Pauline Quirke Academy of Performing Arts, which she set up while Birds of a Feather was off-air.

Linda said “People say Pauline and I have fallen out. Obviously I couldn’t see her during lockdown but I’ve seen her since.

“She just doesn’t want to act anymore. She’s had enough – it’s long hours.”
