The Only Way Is Essex stunners and former BFFs Ferne McCann and Sam Faiers were said to have fallen out last year, over the fact Ferne filmed a programme about being a new mother – which was very similar to Sam’s The Mummy Diaries.
But the pals put their feud on hold as they celebrated Sam’s sister Billie Faiers’ hen do in Ibiza alongside a group of 14 of their closest friends – where they hinted that they’d made up on a number of occasions.
The duo cosied up to each other in a number of clips on Sam’s story, later all posting the same photo of the three of them together, simply titled: “Friendship & laughter beats all.”
Now, Ferne has exclusively opened up about the trip – saying they had the “best time” as they rekindled their friendship following a year-long feud.
“I feel like everyone was with us on the hen do,” she exclusively told OK! Online at the The Animal Hero Awards 2018, in partnership with Webbox and RSPCA. “We had such a ball, start to finish. My cheekbones were aching towards the end, as we did not stop grinning. It was just so good, and it was so much fun.”
Rumours Sam and Ferne had fallen out first started in May 2017, shortly after news of Ferne’s pregnancy broke, however, at the time the girls denied any reports of a feud.

But months later, Sam told the Sun Online: “Look. To be honest, over the last couple of years, Ferne and I hadn’t seen eye to eye on a number of things. Sometimes as friends you do just drift apart.
“We were both at my sister’s bridal shower — Ferne was there. It was fine. It was nice. We were just catching up on the babies really. So we are fine.”
Ferne and Sam have since given birth to daughters Sunday Skye and Rosie Knightley respectively, and neither publicly congratulated the other on their baby girls, and are yet to enjoy a playdate together.

Billie later revealed why she had snubbed Ferne as her bridesmaid, after reports that she was left “upset” and “excluded” over the news.

“So many of my friends have had eight pals as bridesmaids, but I think it’s too much,” Billie told Closer.
“There was a story that my friend Ferne was upset she won’t be one of my bridesmaids, but I’ve got a really good group of friends and I could never pick just one or two of them – never choose between your friends.
“I decided to just have Sam as my Maid of Honour. Ferne wasn’t upset about it, she’d known for ages”.
