Ferne McCann has allegedly branded Sam Faiers a “narcissistic slut” in a shocking audio clip leaked on social media on Wednesday night.
It comes hours after Ferne, 32, was accused of branding her former TOWIE co-star a ‘fat c***’ before appearing to shame her in another shot, describing her thighs as ‘so big’ described.
Describing Sam, 31, Ferne reportedly said in the voice memo: “The kind of girl she is she’s just a narcissistic bitch she honestly won’t give a damn.”

Ferne appeared to come to another message and say: “It’s an exact copy. It just sucks at people who worked so hard. Because she has a huge following, that’s just ridiculous.”
The Instagram account wrote alongside the clip: “@FerneMcCann what a jealous bitter woman talking about your so called best friend @Samantha Faiers who you have known for 20 years.
“As a friend, you should support your friends not to run to other friends and pawn them.”
MailOnline has reached out to a Ferne representative for comment.
The voice messages were reportedly sent remotely on WhatsApp to a friend in June, just a month after Sam gave birth to their third baby, Edward.

After the first clips circulated online, Sam’s mum Suzie was so horrified by the news that she posted it to her Instagram page this morning, which is accessible to her 270,000 followers.
Suzie wrote: “Well after a few days of pain and excitement I can’t sit back and say nothing.
“The vile voice memo has been doing the rounds on social media and now press articles are calling it a ‘feud’, which it isn’t.
‘Sam at a loss’: The voice message was reportedly sent remotely on WhatsApp to a friend in June, just a month after Sam gave birth to their third baby, Edward (pictured July 2019).
‘Shocked’: After hearing the first clip, Sam’s mother Suzie posted a statement on her Instagram account on Wednesday morning, saying, ‘No one should ever talk about their friends like that.’
“It was a complete shock to me and my family. Ferne has always been a very close family friend to all of us for the last 20 years.
“It appears that this voice memo was sent just a few weeks after Samantha was born in May. More has been sent since that voice memo popped up – very upsetting nasty stuff.
“We are just as shocked as you! No one should ever talk about their friends like that!
“My girls are my everything and I will do anything to protect them. I have nothing more to say about that.”

A source told MailOnline: “Obviously Sam is incredibly hurt and upset by these comments, especially from someone she considers a good friend. She’s at a loss as to why Ferne decided to make such derogatory statements about her.”
Sam unfollowed Ferne and blocked Ferne on Instagram after hearing the message, which read in full: “Sam Faiers is a fat ass her thighs are so big and I looked really skinny today and um yeah.”
Reality TV stars Ferne and Sam have been close friends and part of each other’s lives for more than two decades.
In their TOWIE heyday, the pair partied at the Essex haunted Sugar Hut and supported each other through their dramatic storylines, including Sam’s split from boyfriend Joey Essex.
They have celebrated important birthdays together, the arrival of their children, and Ferne is also a close friend of Sam’s sister Billie, 32, who attends her hen, wedding and baby showers.
Ferne shared an emotional tribute to Sam on her 30th birthday in 2021, declaring her love for her former co-star on Instagram.
She said: “Wow it was emotional looking back at all those pictures. So many laughs, parties and special memories. You my love have given me so many memories that I will cherish forever.’
Ferne even sang at Billie’s 2019 wedding in the Maldives, with the reality star saying her best friend’s surprise performance was a moment she’ll never forget.
Sam and Ferne’s relationship has been shattered by various fallouts in the past – but they’ve always managed to make amends.
They fell out over their competing TV shows after Ferne landed First Time Mum following the success of Sam’s ITVBe series The Mummy Dairies.

In 2018, Sam confirmed the couple had put their differences aside, saying, “To be honest, Ferne and I have disagreed on a number of things over the past few years and sometimes as friends you just drift apart.
“I’m in Hertfordshire with my family and she does her thing with her family. There was never a big argument, we just drifted apart, but actually it was nice because my sister’s bridal shower was fine and we caught up with the babies and it really was.
Sam, who gave birth to son Edward in May, is also mother to Paul, six, and Rosie, four, who she shares with longtime partner Paul Knightley.
Ferne is mother to Sunday, four, from her relationship with Arthur Collins, who is currently serving a 20-year sentence after being found guilty of an acid attack in 2017.
That same year, it was reported that Sam advised Ferne to end her romance with Arthur and their friendship suffered from his imprisonment.
She got engaged to fiancé Lorri Haines in July after a whirlwind seven-month romance, telling her followers on Instagram, “So happily ever after.”
Ferne’s representatives declined to comment when approached by MailOnline, but a source close to Ferne suggested the partial recording, which was released publicly, may have been edited or taken out of context.

Fallout: Ferne is also close friends with Sam’s sister Billie, but relations between the two have soured after the shocking admission
Sam joined the cast of TOWIE as an original in 2010, while Ferne became a regular show three years later.
Ferne is currently starring in the C4 series Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
During Sunday night’s episode, she confessed she was known as ‘b****’ during her time on TOWIE – but insisted she behaved differently away from the cameras.
She said: “I think on TOWIE I was probably seen as a b**** but in real life that character doesn’t fit who I am.
“I don’t like confrontation. I find it very difficult.’
Moving on: Ferne, who is engaged to Lorri Haines, is a mother until Sunday from her relationship with Arthur Collins, who is serving a 20-year sentence for an acid attack in 2017
