A FIRST look at The Family Diaries has seen Sam Faiers return to TV screens after her “fatshaming” row with Ferne McCann.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star has taken to her sister Billie’s ITVBe show for the latest episode – which hit screens tonight.
Leaked voice notes appeared online appeared to show Ferne calling Sam a “fat c***”, describing her thighs as “so big”.
“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 told The Sun yesterday.
“She’s at a loss as to why Ferne has turned on her,” they added, before confirming Sam has since blocked Ferne online and unfollowed her.
However, the shock row hasn’t stopped Sam from appearing in front of the cameras, as she returns to screens on The Family Diaries.
Sam was seen meeting with her sister Billie, 32, in a first-look clip from tonight’s show, alongside her newborn baby Edward.
Sam, who welcomed her baby boy in May, visited her sister and her two children alongside Edward and her long-term partner Paul.
Looking glamorous, Sam had dressed up for her TV appearance in a summery mini dress and dark sunglasses.

“It’s so nice for my sister to come today with the kids and baby Edward,” Billie told the cameras ahead of Sam’s debut.
“It’s one of her first days out, with her and the baby,” Billie added.
The sisters were then seen gushing over one another – as Sam affectionately rubbed her blossoming baby bump.
“The good thing about having a sister that’s just had a third is that I can go to her for all the advice,” Billie went on as the clips played on.
It comes after Billie broke her silence after her long-standing best friend Ferne was accused of calling her sister Sam “a fat c***”.
Sam’s mother Susie earlier today claimed Ferne 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.
