FORMER TOWIE star Ferne McCann broke down in tears on This Morning as she discussed her leaked voice notes scandal.
The 32-year-old described it as her "lowest moment" and said she is still yet to share her "full truth".
What did Ferne McCann say in the voice notes?
In November 2022 an anonymous Instagram account, called Lady Whistledown posted a series of voice messages from a woman they claimed was Ferne.
The first voice note showed Ferne supposedly making a series of comments about her former best pals Sam and Billie, allegedly calling Sam a "fat c***".
"Sam Faiers is a fat c***. Her thighs are so big and I looked really skinny today and… yeah," Ferne allegedly said.
In a second voice note, Ferne appeared to call her pal Sam a "narcissistic b***h".
"That's the sort of girl that she is. She's just a narcissistic b***h. She honestly won't care.
"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," she allegedly said.
Weeks later the account leaked another voice note, where Ferne was alleged to have made comments about her ex Arthur's acid attack victim Sophie Hall.
In the voice notes, a woman is heard mocking Sophie before adding: “She is one ugly f***ing c***.”

What has Ferne McCann said about the voice notes?
Since the voice notes leaked, Ferne has been very apologetic.
On March 15, 2023, she publicly apologised again on This Morning for the scandal.
Breaking down in tears, she said: "It definitely wasn't my finest hour and it definitely was a very difficult time in my life, but I do, I need to take this opportunity to publicly apologise again to those affected, obviously, the words I used were unpleasant and I have reached out privately to those people and it's very difficult."
The reality star insisted that she couldn't share her "full truth" yet as it's still a "criminal investigation".
She added: "I would love to sit here with you guys and share exactly what went on, but it's now part of a criminal investigation so I can't do that, but what I can say is these voice notes were from a time when I was in a very vulnerable situation and I have since then have done a lot of work on myself, I've been in therapy for six years and I feel like I am a different person."
Speaking about the voice notes being released, Ferne said: "When you find yourself in the eye of the storm it effects my family, my agent – everyone around me – and I felt hugely responsible, I was hurting, I hit some of my lowest moments, and, yeah of course you still have to get up and do the school run, and it was tough.
"I just feel grateful to the show, First Time Mum has been a lifeline for me."
