Lily says she didn't see Fearne at the bash

Lily Allen has fought back after Fearne Cotton claimed she ‘blanked her five times’ at the Brit Awards on Wednesday.

Fearne, 32, sparked the spat when she popped into Nick Grimshaw‘s Radio 1 breakfast show yesterday morning and said Lily, 28, had ignored her and fiancé Jesse Wood.

‘I don’t hate her. I got on with her really well last time she was here. We were in a great place. We talked about the kids,’ said Fearne.

‘So I thought: “Oh, I’ll say hi at the Brits.” She looked through me like a pane of glass. And she blanked Jesse. You know my boyfriend is the nicest guy in the world… blanked.’

Fearne had stood out on the red carpet in a silver dress before heading into the O2 Arena with Jesse, 37, where Lily presented Arctic Monkeys with the gong for Best British Band.

But Lily insists she didn’t notice mum-of-one Fearne at the ceremony.

‘@Fearnecotton I did not blank you. That is simply not true. I didn’t see you or your husband,’ Tweeted Lily.

‘any, why couldn’t you just come over a say hi yourself ?’
