SAMANTHA Faiers looked downcast as she kept focused on her phone – hours after ending her friendship with Ferne McCann.
سام was today pictured for the the first time since the explosive showbiz bust-up was revealed.
The voice on the leaked recordings – allegedly sent by Ferne to a third party – يقول: "Sam Faiers is a fat c***. Her thighs are so big and I looked really skinny today.”
The voice in the message is not confirmed to be Ferne.
Fans have been left shell-shocked by the alleged revelations, with insiders since opening up about the pair’s rocky relationship.
قال مصدر لصحيفة ذا صن: Ferne was said to be “jealous of Sam’s perfect life”.
قالوا: “It’s like Ferne was jealous of how perfect Sam’s life was – she’s got the perfect house and kids and partner, while it’s fair to say that Ferne has struggled in the past.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if it was jealousy that was driving the rivalry.”
Both Sam’s and Ferne’s reps have been approached for comment.
