Ferne McCann has reportedly called in the police amid drama surrounding leaked voice notes.
An anonymous Instagram account started sharing recordings, which appear to be Ferne's voice, last week. The first clip sensationally appears to feature her using the C-word to talk about her fellow TOWIE star and former BFF Sam Faiers, adding: "Her thighs are so big and I looked really skinny today."
While Sam has sought comfort from new pals and brushed off the drama by spending time with her family, a distraught Ferne, 32, has reportedly had her "life turned upside down".
The star, who "hasn't stopped crying all week", has allegedly called in the police, who are "tracking the parties responsible".
A source told The Sun: "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."
OK! has contacted Ferne's representative and Essex police for comment.
It comes as earlier this week, in another voice note, a woman, allegedly Ferne, can be heard saying: "She is just a narcissistic b***h.
"It’s just so s**t on people that have worked hard, because she’s got a big following. It’s just ridiculous — it’s out of order."
Ferne and Sam are thought to have been very close at one time with their friendship pre-dating TOWIE.
Ferne was thought to still be very close to Sam's sister, Billie, but their relationship now may be tested after a third voice note dragged her into the row.
The recording is thought to be five years old and sent close to the time Billie, 32, gave birth to her second child.
In the clip, a voice which is alleged to be Ferne admits it's "weird" Billie's son Arthur shares a name with her ex-boyfriend, Arthur Collins, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence after being found guilty of carrying out an acid attack in 2017.
Arthur, 29, is the father of Ferne's only child, Sunday, four. The voice note says: "It feels so weird saying 'Arthur', I can't believe it.
"It's like me having a little boy and calling him Greg [Billie's husband's name]. Anyway, whatever."
Ferne has also reportedly "quit" Instagram in light of the drama and her most recent post was last Sunday.
Although the former TOWIE star's account remains live, she has also opted to turn comments off on a number of posts.
