More news about Fern BrittonStrictly 2012: Fern Britton sent home after sexy strip
Sources have claimed that Fern’s getting very “catty” and “bitchy” with the other celebrity contestants.
A show insider told Unrealitytv: “Fern’s always seen as a mother hen, but she’s not been liked at all. She’s very competitive, which shocked a lot of people.”
Strictly sources claim that Fern was unhappy after Lisa managed to top the leaderboard and is shocked by all the positive reviews the curvy former soap star received, despite being overweight.
The insider went on: “She made a joke about Lisa’s weight, but it fell flat as it was really catty, especially as Fern should have empathy having once been bigger herself.”
The TV host, who admitted to having a gastric band fitted in 2008, has also reportedly spoken out about "spoiled brat" Jerry Hall.
The BBC source added: “She’s having a right bitch about everyone on the show and is saying she's already fed up with Jerry Hall being a diva.”
While it’s alleged that Fern isn’t playing nice with the other celebrity contestants, her Strictly partner Artem is showing nothing but love for the other dancers.
After Saturday’s show he tweeted: “Everybody did amazing tonight specially @Reallisariley and @Robinwindsor love them what a performance”.
