According to MailOnline, the fan asked, 'How do you feel about Yewande saying you're a horrible person?'

Lucie allegedly responded, 'She's always bullied me. I'm not bothered about her opinion... makes her look bad.'

'Not sure where she said that though!' Lucie added.

Shortly after the screenshot emerged, Yewande took to Twitter with the following statement:

'You refused to call me by my name because it was too “hard to pronounce” now you wanna say I bullied you !!'

Her co-stars Amy Hart and Amber Gill backed her up in the comments.

Lucie responds to the drama

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, Lucie addressed the situation.

She said, 'These are really old comments dug up purely to incite a row between two females.'

'In this day and age and with everything going on in the world, we should all be sticking together not attacking each other.'

Lucie continued, 'I've been sent death threats which are incredibly scary as you can imagine.'

'I said on the show I had trouble pronouncing Yewande's name, it's just what I'm like.'

'And I asked if I could use a shortened abbreviated version of her name instead as a term of endearment – there's nothing sinister to it.'

'I regret how just a few old comments sent 18 months ago has snowballed like this and got out of hand, and drummed up some needless negativity.'

'Can we all just move on from this please?' Lucie concluded.
