FERNE McCann has ‘begged’ Sam Fairers for a ‘secret meeting’ following the voice note controversy.
Die werklikheidster, 32, first came under fire for the voice notes when an anonymous account leaked the audio which alleged was Ferne speaking.
A woman could be heard bashing The Only Way Is Essex star Sam Faiers, calling her overweight and a “narcissistic b*tch”.
And now it’s reported Ferne has been ‘bombarding’ Sam with messages asking to meet to discuss the damning audio clips.
“Ferne has been desperate for a meeting with Sam and has been bombarding her with messages – as well as speaking to Billie [Sam’s sister],” a source told Closer magazine.
“She and Sam almost came face to face at the Pride of Britain Awards recently, and Ferne thinks it’s only a matter of time before they rub shoulders again.
“She doesn’t want to cause a scene, so has instead been angling for them to have a private chat in secret where Ferne can go over everything that was said and try to straighten things out.”
Ferne was hit with another voice note controversy last month when audio leaked of her making vile remarks about acid attack victim Sophie Hall.

The scandal erupted last month when the messages appeared on an Instagram account.
In the voice notes, a woman is heard mocking Sophie before adding: “She is one ugly f***ing c***.”
Despite calls for Ferne to be sacked from her ITV job following the scandal, the broadcaster has backed her.
