FERNE McCann’s fiancé Lorri Haines appears to have taken aim at Sam Faiers amid the ongoing ‘leaked voice notes’ scandal.
Lorri, known as Lozza, has taken to Instagram and shared a cryptic message as the drama rumbles on.
The message warned: “A wise man once said, ‘Be careful who you let on your ship, because some people will sink the whole ship just because they can’t be captain’.”
The messages, posted on Instagram, were allegedly sent by Ferne and called Sam a “fat c***”.
Another saw mum-of-three Sam being branded a “narcissistic b**ch”. Ferne has not publicly commented on the leaks.
The Sun exclusively revealed that Ferne has spoken with authorities in a bid to unmask the person sharing the private conversations on social media.
A source said: “Ferne was visited by the police on Thursday night after having her life turned upside down by a fake account that has launched a malicious smear campaign against her.
“Officers spent a few hours with her and gave reassurances that they are prioritising this case, tracking the parties responsible.

“Having taken statements, the police are currently in the process of tracking the fake account’s whereabouts.
“The Online Safety Bill was discussed as they clamp down on cyber crime.”
A spokesperson for Essex Police told The Sun: “We are investigating a report of malicious communication which was made to us in Brentwood on Thursday 29 September.
“We have spoken to the victim, a woman aged in her 30s, and our enquiries are ongoing.”
Ferne has quit Instagram in the wake of the drama.
Her decision to go silent came after the account also released a clip of a woman it alleged was Ferne slating Sam’s sister Billie, who happens to be her best friend.
In that clip, the woman moans about Billie calling her son Arthur, the same name as Ferne’s ex Arthur Collins – who was jailed for an acid attack.
The public Instagram account which has been sharing the damning voice notes had more than 19,000 followers before it was suddenly erased.
The mystery poster had threatened to leak a further 36 recordings in the coming days.
