Lily Allen has hit back at Fearne Cotton after the Radio 1 DJ accused the popstar of snubbing her at the Brit Awards 2014.
Speaking to Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw, Fearne said: "Lily Allen blanked me last night. Five times. She blanked me 5 times in a row."
When teased by Nick's team, Fearne added: "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. So I thought, 'Oh, I'll say hi at the Brits.' [But] she looked through me like a pane of glass. And she blanked [my boyfriend] Jesse [Wood]. You know my boyfriend is the nicest guy in the world... blanked."
Taking to Twitter to reject Fearne's claims, Lily wrote: "@Fearnecotton I did not blank you. That is simply not true. I didn't see you or your husband."
And she added: "@Fearnecotton any, why couldn't you just come over a say hi yourself?"

Fearne Cotton is relieved she’s no longer a wild-child after putting her boozy clubbing days behind her since finding love with fiancé Jesse Wood.
The 32-year-old says she has become a ‘true homebody’ since meeting Ronnie Wood’s son and giving birth to her first child, Rex, and has no desire to relive her 20s. ‘I don’t really go out much, I’ve no desire to go out and get completely wasted or go out clubbing or anything like that,’ she told Guilty Pleasures.’
‘I’ve done all of that, it’s great fun and I had a wild time and you know I was single. That’s when you want to go out and look for hot men or whatever it is, and flirt with people and have fun.’
‘But I’ve settled down now so I’m in the next phase of my life. I really had a great time in my 20s, it was really fun but now I really love the place I’m in now and being this true homebody that I am and I’ve always been secretly.’
Now the Radio 1 presenter prefers quiet nights with her guitarist beau, 37, after admitting she can’t handle her booze like she used to. ‘My dream night out is going for dinner with friends or another couple. Maybe I’ll have a little drink but I’m drunk after one anyway, I’ll get a little champagne buzz and then I’m over it.’

Fearne Cotton is hosting E!'s BAFTA red-carpet coverage this weekend. We caught up with her to talk stuck zips, control pants and Pharell's huge hat.
"People tend to have a bit more fun with fashion at the BAFTAs.
It’s like a more relaxed version of the Oscars, so people can wear a more daring option and be a bit eccentric, or off-the-wall. And sometimes people do take into consideration the weather too, so maybe something with longer sleeves because it is absolutely freezing out there.
"Last time I wore little thermal leggings under my very long dress.
I also had a hot water bottle on the side so during breaks or Dermot’s interviews I’d just hug it! By the end of it your face is just completely numb, you can’t feel your jaw moving and you just pray the words are coming out as you’re expecting them to...
...whether celebs sneakily wear control pants on the red carpet:
100% my God, absolutely! I don’t think some of them actually need them, but I wear them because they’re mega comfortable, pull you in, make you feel really secure, and again, it’s another layer for the freezing BAFTAs red carpet so I’ll wear as many Spanx, tights, thermals whatever I can get under that dress to be honest!

Fearne Cotton has been swept up into a row over her use of the phrase 'MegaLolz' in a BBC Radio 1 jingle earlier this week. Since the controversy erupted, Fearne has been notably absent from the schedule with Annie Mac covering her show.
The row stemmed from Fearne's use of the now tainted phrase on her show, which prompted children's charities and listeners to complain. Convicted paedophile Ian Watkins used the term regularly during live performances and even used it in a recorded conversation from jail in which he described his sex crimes as "megalolz".
Fearne used to date the disgraced frontman many years ago before he began to indulge his sick fantasies, but her use of the term has brought unwanted attention back to the BBC following the Jimmy Savile scandals of the past two years.
The incident happened on Monday, but found a bigger audience when the Daily Mail and others picked up the story on January 29. Annie Mac has stepped in to front the show since then and Fearne has been noticeably quiet on Twitter, leading to speculation that the BBC has suspended her temporarily over the matter. There has been no official statement from the broadcaster.

Fearne Cotton insists she’s one celebrity who won’t cash in on her starry wedding as she prepares to walk down the aisle with Jesse Wood.
The 32-year-old has revealed to Guilty Pleasures she’s started planning her big day with Ronnie Wood’s son, which includes designing her own frock after spending the last five years researching her perfect dress. But the Radio 1 presenter ruled out lucrative magazine deals to show it off, insisting: ‘I couldn’t think of anything worse than selling my photos!
‘Whatever we do, it will be just simple and not too professional, just something that feels right and just for the people that we really love and we want to be there.
‘I know people sell their weddings and that’s fine if they’re happy with their pictures all being out there but we just want it to be an occasion where our friends and family can all relax and not worry about all that side of it and it not to be about work,’ she added, ‘I just want it to be a nice family friendly environment.
‘Obviously I’ve been Googling wedding dresses for, like, five years anyway because I love them.
‘I’d design my own, I’ll be influenced by things I see and then design something nice I think. That’s obviously something that’s really fun to plan.’ But with her busy schedule, the new mum confessed her ‘simple’ wedding might not happen any time soon with the 37-year-old guitarist.
‘We’ve started talking about it. We’d love it to happen at some point but we’re very busy so we’re just trying to work out when,’ she told Guilty Pleasures in an exclusive chat, adding: ‘At some point we’ll get around to it but in the meantime I’ll just keep Googling.’
