Ferne McCann puts up her Christmas tree after tough few weeks

FERNE McCann has been seen putting up her Christmas tree at her Essex home after a difficult few weeks.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star has been at the centre of a voice note scandal, after an anonymous Instagram account leaked audio of Ferne, 32, lashing out at an acid attack victim.

Ferne issued an apology to victim Sophie Hall earlier this month after a voice note was shared in which she called her “ugly”, causing huge waves of backlash.

The ITV star confirmed she made the remarks passed round on social media, insisting that she said them out of fear.

While Ferne has faced major hit backs from fans in the last two weeks, with many calling for her to be sacked from her ITV shows, she has brushed off the drama by getting ready for Christmas.

The mother-of-one took to her Instagram stories to reveal that she had put up her Christmas tree at her Essex home.

Ferne panned round her living room as she revealed the impressive tree, which had been covered in silver and white decorations.

Aside from the baubles, the tree was also decorated with bright flashing lights, silver jewels and fake snow to frost the branches.

“She's up, so cosy in our front room,” Ferne penned. “Are we for or against your Christmas tree going up in November?”

She went on to show off the whole room, including two stockings hanging above the fire place ahead of the festive season.

It's been a difficult few weeks for Ferne, after she admitted just days ago that it was her who made vile remarks about one of her ex's victims in an audio message.

Ferne's former partner Arthur Collins is currently serving a 20-year prison term for the attack at a nightclub in London in April 2017.

Sophie Hall, one of 22 people injured, was scarred for life.

In the leaked voice note, Ferne could be heard mocking Sophie for taking part in a pageant, saying: “She is one ugly f***ing c***.”

She issued a lengthy apology following the leak and directly mentioned Sophie in her statement.

The ex-Towie star said: “In particular I want to apologise to Sophie Hall. I do not believe her to be ugly or stupid. She has been brave beyond belief.”

In the statement McCann said that while she did send the voice note, she said it was done 'out of fear' and said the messages had been manipulated.

She said: “I am aware that people will have a number of questions about the voice messages being put into the public domain and purportedly sent by me.

“I feel I have no choice but to address these — to the extent that I can as there are restrictions on me.

“Most importantly I want to apologise to all the victims of Arthur Collins’ abhorrent actions in 2017 that they have to relive that night and the pain that followed because this matter is again in the public domain.”

She apologised to Sophie in particular, then went on: “Arthur Collins’ crimes created genuine victims so I am not trying to portray myself as one.

“I am unable to say much because there are important and significant legal proceedings that prevent me from setting the record straight at this stage.

“What I can say is that the voice messages that are being released are manipulated; edited and taken entirely out of context.

“Even so, I will have said things that are untrue and I did not believe – but I did so to protect my family and myself from serious harm and in the face of significant threats.”
