In voice memos leaked earlier this month, she is said to have labeled her former TOWIE colleague Sam Faiers as “fat c***” and “narcissistic b**ch.”
And after the pair risked an awkward confrontation at the Pride Of Britain Awards Monday night, Ferne McCann, 32, revealed she was going on holiday the next day.
The reality star told her Instagram followers that she was heading for a “much-needed break” with her daughter Summer, her fiancé Lorri Haines and his young son.
“The much-needed break!” On Tuesday, Ferne McCann, 32, revealed she was flying with daughter Summer after she reportedly labeled Sam Faiers, 31, a ‘fat c***’ and ‘narcissistic b**ch’
“And we’re going for some half term fun and a well deserved break,” Ferne wrote alongside a photo of her daughter Summer and Lorri’s son aboard a flight.
A short time later, she uploaded a clip of herself kissing and hugging her little girl as they rode in a golf cart.
Ferne tagged her husband, posted a photo of him enjoying a beer by the beach and wrote: Cerveza time.’
Then the mum-of-one shared a selfie video of herself pouting into the camera and flinging her dark brown locks, adding, “When your wet-look bob takes you from the red carpet to the beach.”

The mixed family holiday comes after Ferne reportedly branded her former TOWIE co-star Sam Faiers, 31, a “fat c***” and “narcissistic b**ch” in leaked voice notes.
Just last week, Ferne broke her silence following the shocking voice notes scandal.
Fresh off completing Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, the former TOWIE star, 32, revealed on Instagram that she had “encountered difficulties in her life” during the experience.
The reality star wrote: ‘What a journey. Joining @sas_whodareswins was one of the most humiliating and hardest things I’ve ever done.
“I can honestly say it has changed my life. The whole experience makes you look at every part of yourself – your strengths, your weaknesses, your deepest fears.

‘It taught me resilience, self-acceptance and that every moment is an opportunity for change. It has given me the confidence to finally face the difficulties in my life, deal with them and move on.”
She added: “Moments will get to you, you’ll screw up, but you have to find that resilience and grit to pick yourself up and go again.
“Just when you think you’ve got it all figured out, life will always throw up something else, and as the DS says, it’s how you handle it that matters,” she added in part of her lengthy post.
Breakout: Ferne is embroiled in an ongoing feud with Sam Faiers, 31, after audio leaked in which Ferne allegedly called her boyfriend a ‘fat c***’ (pictured together in 2019)
Pride of Britain Awards 2022: Ferne had a VERY awkward red carpet reunion with Sam in London on Monday
Ferne made headlines earlier this month after the audio footage was posted from an Instagram account.
Sam and Ferne, who co-starred in The Only Way Is Essex, were friends for over 20 years before the drama.
Ferne is reportedly devastated by the leaked notes and “can’t stop crying” as she has received comments online from fans after the audio appeared to show she was calling Sam a “fat bastard.”
‘Her thighs are so big and I looked really skinny today,’ ... continued – cutting to other clips that allegedly describe Sam, Ferne said: ‘The kind of girl she is, she’s just a narcissistic bitch, she won honestly doesn’t matter.’
The Instagram account wrote alongside the clip: ‘@FerneMcCann what a jealous bitter woman talking about your so called best friend @SamanthaFaiers you’ve known for 20 years.
Friends on social media: Sam unfollowed Ferne on Instagram, but Ferne still follows Sam
“As a friend, you should support your friends and not run to other friends to beat them.”
The voice messages are said to have been sent by Ferne to a friend on WhatsApp in June, just a month after Sam gave birth to her third baby, Edward.
But sharing that Ferne “don’t know what to do,” a source explained: “She’s in a living nightmare and wants this to stop. People don’t know all the facts. All eyes are on what might appear next on this Instagram account.”
“If those voice memos were made by Ferne, that’s incredibly damaging. She is currently seen as a little poisonous. No one can believe she would say such things.’
Sam unfollowed Ferne on Instagram during the drama, with her sister Billie reportedly calling her former co-star to find out about the situation.
According to The Sun, Ferne has now contacted Essex Police to see if they can locate the anonymous person behind an Instagram account who shared the shocking voice notes.

A source said: ‘Ferne was visited by police on Thursday night after her life was turned upside down by a fake account that launched a malicious smear campaign against her.
“Agents spent a few hours with her and assured that they are prioritizing this case and following the responsible parties.
“After taking statements, the police are currently tracing the whereabouts of the fake account. The Online Safety Bill was discussed as they curb cybercrime.”
The voice messages also reportedly show Ferne lashing out at Sam’s sister Billie, saying it was “weird” that Billie decided to name her son Arthur – the name of Ferne’s ex Arthur Collins, with whom she shares a daughter on Sunday.

Arthur, 29, is currently serving a 20-year sentence after being found guilty of carrying out a brutal acid attack in 2017. Ferne was raised as a single parent on Sunday.
The voice message says, “It feels so weird saying ‘Arthur’ I can’t believe it, it’s like having a little boy and calling him Greg, anyway, whatever.”
However, many fans have flocked to Ferne’s defense, insisting that everyone make comments “behind closed doors” and claim the feud should be resolved privately.
On social media, one fan said: “Always two sides to every story. You never know what happens behind closed doors. Fact.’
Another wrote: ‘I really don’t agree with this but can’t get it resolved privately, I think Ferne will be in a very bad position here, however much she’s done wrong, two mistakes don’t make right.’
