Most savage celebrity beefs of 2018 – from Katie Price to Meghan Markle
It’s the season of goodwill and peace to all men etc etc.
But try telling that to the more fiery celebs out there who’ve spent 2018 beefing, bitching and backstabbing.
From Jodie Marsh poking the badger and reigniting her 15-year feud with Katie Price to Fern Britton sticking it to her former This Morning co-star Phillip Schofield during the show’s anniversary celebrations, the stars have been aiming their arrows all over the show.
Here’s a look back at some of the biggest spats from the last 12 months…
Katie Price and Jodie Marsh
They fought like cat and dog back in the day, and Jodie came out of hiding to slam her former Page 3 rival when a fan had the audacity to compare them earlier this year.
It all started when 39-year-old bodybuilder Jodie posted about her new lifestyle blog and gloated, "I just went back and re-read it. It’s bloody brilliant even if I do say so myself."
But when one of her followers suggested she might have a ghost writer, Jodie hit back, "I rarely swear on here but don’t be f****** ridiculous! I’m Jodie f****** Marsh. Not Katie f****** Price."
The last time the pair came to blows was in October 2017 when Jodie waded into the Katie’s feud with Chris Hughes over whether or not he sent her sexy texts.
Jodie couldn’t resist sticking her two pence in and branded the former glamour model, “evil”.
"All we need now is for a load of others to have the balls to tell the truth about what certain people are REALLY like…” she fumed.
"Failing that I’ll write a book and call it a novel. You wanna know what really goes on in showbiz?! God the stories I could tell…”
Katie’s stayed silent this time around, but she lost it big time in 2015 when Jodie slagged her off for having five kids by three different dads.
"Don’t knock mothers like me, there’s lots of us. Didn’t you go out with my exes’ names written over your body, marking them out of ten after you sh***d them, classy," she spat.
“Well you’ve sh***ed nearly all my leftovers and not one of them wanted you (gutted).”
Katie continued: “I don’t know any man who finds you attractive! You’re the most vile thing I’ve ever seen. You’re no model, you look like a man in drag – maybe you and Alex Reid would suit… Wind your beak in and get back in your box – you’ll never be me but keep trying.”
Kim Catrall and Sarah Jessica Parker
They might have appeared the very best of friends for six years on Sex And The City, but off screen Kim Cattrall and Sarah Jessica Parker’s toxic relationship came fully to light following the tragic death of Kim’s brother Chris.
SJP reached out to offer support, but a furious Kim blasted the gesture as "a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now."
Tensions between the two leading actresses were said to have been bubbling under from the very beginning of their working relationship – mainly sparked by SJP’s much bigger salary.
Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis, who played Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York, are said to have formed an alliance with SJP, ‘deliberately excluding’ Kim from their clique.
There were even rumours the trio refused to speak to Kim outside of what was written on their scripts, even on 15 hour filming days.
A source told Mail Online: ‘From the point when SJP had her executive producer credit, she took ownership of the show and this always grated on Kim.
"She felt SJP got more screen time than she did, which was only fair because Sarah Jessica was the lead, but it caused tension."
However, SJP insisted she’d been nothing but fair.
"You’re on set, you’re working 90-hour weeks, you’re never home, you’re exhausted," she said. "Sometimes feelings get hurt. But I don’t have any regrets about how I’ve treated people."
Piers Morgan and Meghan Markle
Good Morning Britain host Piers was no doubt expecting an invite to the Royal Wedding given he’d been drinking with Meghan just hours before she met Prince Harry in 2016.
But when one didn’t arrive, he hit out, accusing the actress of ‘using’ him for fame and ‘ghosting’ him once she’d got what she needed.
"Anyone or anything that may not give her what she wants or gets in the way of her social climbing self-advancement gets discarded," he raged in a column for the Daily Mail.
The pair struck up an unlikely friendship when Piers started following her on Twitter and Meghan almost immediately replied, "Well hello there – thanks for the follow. Big fan of yours!"
Over the next few months they chatted regularly, discussing at length everything from US gun violence to her charity work, their shared hatred of early morning filming calls and even her family.
In early June Meghan herself flew over to the UK and arranged to meet Piers at his local pub after watching her friend Serena Williams play at Wimbledon.
They spent an hour and a half chatting before she headed off to meet friends for dinner at the trendy 5 Hertford Street in London’s Mayfair.
It was there that she met Prince Harry – and from that point on, Piers says his messages went unanswered.
Branding the alleged behaviour ‘rude’, he sniped, "She’s spent most of the past 20 years cosying up to people until they serve no more use to her, then airbrushing them out of her life without so much as ‘goodbye, Loser!’
And he now believes that all the negative stories leaking out of the palace suggest her alleged ambitious nature has not been tamed.
"Meghan Markle is a self-obsessed professional actress who has landed the role of her life and is determined to milk it for all she’s worth," he continued.
Ferne McCann and Sam Faiers
They used to be the very best of friends but fell out around the same time Ferne’s jailed ex Arthur Collins seriously injured more than 20 people by throwing acid in a London nightclub.
Rumours flew that Sam had cut ties with Ferne because she didn’t completely cut contact with Collins, while other reports claimed Mummy Diaries star Sam felt Ferne was copying her with her ITVBe show, First Time Mum.
And in March this year Sam confirmed the fall-out, telling The Mirror, "Over quite a long period of time, we haven’t seen eye to eye on a number of things.
"We’ve drifted apart from each other. We’ve grown up and grown apart but there’s no major feud."
However, Ferne hit back insisting the ill-feeling was sparked by Sam’s jealousy over her new reality show, First Time Mum.
"We fell out because I went ahead and filmed for this show," Ferne told Star magazine.
"After the year I’ve had, I haven’t got the energy to entertain feuds. I just want positivity around me."
Finally though, Ferne was welcomed back into the Faiers fold in July after attending Sam’s sister Billie’s baby shower.
"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," she said.
Phillip Schofield and Fern Britton
It was supposed to be a happy occasion when Fern returned to This Morning to celebrate the show’s 30th anniversary in October.
But the fur started flying when she claimed she hadn’t been invited to the show’s BAFTA ceremony – and the spat the deliciously moved on to Twitter.
Commenting on the awkward incident, Phil wrote, "Odd really, because she was invited and declined #memoryloss we’d have loved her to be there. A vital and much loved part of the show."
Fern retweeted the comment, sniping: "No. I had no invitation to decline."
Fern’s agents later admitted they’d stuffed up by declining the invite on her behalf without telling her.
But the beef all harks back to when she quit the show in 2009 after seven years amid reports she discovered Phil was being paid £250,000 more than her.
Four years later in 2013, Phil revealed they were no longer speaking, telling Heat magazine, "No, not really. We were involved in the show and mates at the time, but we don’t really…
"I see Phil [Fern’s husband, chef Phil Vickery] when he’s in ‘This Morning’… But we’re not in touch now."
That same month, Fern chose her words carefully during an interview with the Daily Mail.
"I always say Phillip and I had an indefinable chemistry which seemed to work well on-screen, she said.
In a possible dig at his closeness to her replacement, Holly Willoughby, she continued, "We ‘got’ each other. We enjoyed a laugh. And viewers seemed to warm to that. But, like Morecambe and Wise, we chose not to live in each other’s pockets.
"We were a great professional partnership but we never went on holiday together.
"I never discussed with Phillip what he and I were earning. I was happy doing the show and happy with my salary."
