How Jordan and Michelle have gone from being best buds to barely talking

With their amazing neon orange skin, penchant for heavy drag-queen slap and their general love of all things me, me, me’, Jordan and Michelle Heaton were hands-down the world’s most perfect BFFs.

But, it seems that all good things must come to an end as the pair’s 8-year friendship is on the verge of a tangerine meltdown.

Insiders tell Now that things kicked off a few months ago when, for some bizarre reason, Jordan, 32, started growing envious of former Liberty X singer and Celebrity Big Brother loser Michelle‘s lifestyle and marriage.

She resented not being the centre of Michelle‘s world.

Michelle married Irish businessman Hugh Hanley in the Bahamas last month and sources tell us that she’s barely spoken to Jordan since she returned from her Malibu honeymoon.  

Michelle‘s been through a lot, is finally happy and in love and Jordan wants to be truly pleased for her, but she simply can’t,’ says an insider.

Other people’s joy only highlights the flaws in her own life. Michelle can’t give her the full attention she needs any more as she’s preoccupied with her own life. It’s an open secret that Jordan‘s marriage to Alex [Reid] is a struggle.

‘She used to be able to talk to Michelle about her problems, especially back in the day when she was going through rough times while married to Pete [Andre].

At the same time, hearing about Michelle with Hugh sometimes reminds her of when she was married to Pete before things turned sour and life was happier.

They had plenty in common, because Michelle also went through a messy divorce from Andy [Scott-Lee]. But these days, it seems Michelle can’t relate and they rarely speak to each other.’
