The Only Way is Essex and First Time Mum star Ferne McCann has been at the centre of controversy after voice notes she recorded where she allegedly made explosive comments about Sam Faiers were “leaked”.

The first message was shared on Instagram earlier this week, where the 32 year old appeared to call Sam, 31, a “fat c***”.

She said: “Sam Faiers is a fat c***. Her thighs are so big, and I looked really skinny today and, urm, yeah.”

A second and what looks to be a third message have since been released where Ferne called the mum-of-three a “narcissistic b***h”.

On the first of the two notes you could hear her say: “That’s the sort of girl that she is. She’s just a narcissistic b***h. She honestly won’t care."

The second went on: “It’s an exact copy. It’s just so sh*t on people that have worked hard to just– because she has a big following. It’s just ridiculous. It’s out of order.”

The context of the notes and when they were recorded remain unclear.

In the wake of the first message being released, Sam’s mum Suzie Wells issued a statement labelling them as “vile”.

Posting on Instagram, Suzie told fans she could "no longer sit back and say nothing".

The star told fans that a clip has been shared on social media, adding: "This has come as a complete shock to myself and my family.

"Ferne has always been a very close family member to all of us over the past 20 years. It appears the voice note was sent just weeks after Samantha gave birth back in May."

Suzie went on: "Since the voice note has surfaced more have been sent – very upsetting nasty things. We are as shocked as you are! Nobody should ever speak about their friends like this ever! My girls are my absolute everything and I'll do anything to protect them."

"I don't have anything else to say on the matter," the mum-of-two concluded.

Other family members have also spoken out in Sam's defence.

While Sam’s yet to address the drama herself, a source close to the 31 year old said she’s “incredibly hurt”.

They told OK!: “Naturally, Sam is incredibly hurt and upset by these comments especially from someone she considered to be a good friend, she’s at a loss as to why Ferne has decided to speak about her in such a derogatory way.”
