One user wrote: “So true. You have higher expectations of your friends, they may not live up to them.”

The person added: “And as you (obviously) have closer, meaningful relationships with your friends, when you feel they have let you down in some way, it hurts, it cuts deeply.”

To this, Fern replied saying: “Exactly x.”

Fern shared cryptic tweets earlier this week

Earlier in the week, Fern hinted that she feels “betrayed” in another tweet.

She retweeted a quote from Georgina Belcher and said: “Thank you for posting this @georginabelcher. Whoever wrote this KNOWS!”

Thought for the day: it’s easier to forgive your enemies than it is to forgive your friends.

The post read: “In life, you will fall out with people that you never thought you would.

“Get betrayed by people you trusted with all of your heart. Get used by people you would do anything for. But life also has a beautiful side to it.

“You will get loved by someone you never thought you would have. Form new friendships with people that will establish more meaningful and stronger relationships. And overcome things you never thought you would get over.

“We all have chapters that end with people at some point in life. But take pride in knowing that the very best part of your book is still being written.”

Fern and Phil split eight months ago

Things seemed pretty amicable when Fern and Phil split.

The TV presenter admitted: “We will always share a great friendship and our lovely children.”

Fern also spoke out about learning to be single during the coronavirus lockdown earlier this year.

She said on Lorraine: “We separated at the beginning of the year and fortunately it’s all smooth. We just came to the end of the road, you know, which is sad.

“So, I’ve been adjusting to life as just me to think about, and my two daughters happen to be here because they got stuck in lockdown, happily for me.

“It’s a time for me to really adjust my existence, which on the one hand is really quite exciting, but you’ve also got to process it for a while.”
