“The vile voice note has been circulating on social media, and now news articles are calling it a ‘feud,’ which it isn’t.

“It was a complete shock for me and my family. Ferne has always been a very close friend of family to all of us over the past 20 years.

“It appears this voice note was sent just weeks after Samantha gave birth in May. Since this voice note surfaced, more have been sent – very upsetting nasty stuff.

“We are as shocked as you! No one should ever talk about their friends like that!

“My daughters are everything to me and I will do anything to protect them. I have nothing more to say on this subject.

In 2018, Sam confirmed the couple had put their differences aside, saying: ‘To be honest over the last couple of years Ferne and I hadn’t agreed on a number of things and sometimes, in as friends, you walk away. .

“I’m in Hertfordshire with my family and she’s doing her thing with her family. There was never a big argument, we just drifted apart but it was actually fine because at my sister’s bridal shower it was fine, and we were catching up with the babies and that’s really it .

Sam, who gave birth to son Edward in May, is also mum to six-year-old Paul and four-year-old Rosie, whom she shares with longtime partner Paul Knightley.

She got engaged to fiancé Lorri Haines in July after a seven-month whirlwind romance, telling her Instagram followers: “So luckily afternoons do exist.”
