BIRDS of a Feather star Pauline Quirke fell out with her castmates after an extraordinary row outside a toilet.
The Sun told this week how the fall-outs meant Pauline was snubbed for last year’s Christmas special.
A source close to Linda, 62, said the atmosphere on set between Pauline and the rest of the cast became more hostile as the years passed.
The source said: “The nadir came during one astonishing row at Teddington Studios, culminating in Pauline and Lesley squaring off, noses centimetres apart, outside the women’s loos.
“They were basically pulled apart by stunned crew members.
“Things went rapidly downhill from there.
“It’s a sad ending to what was one of the most endearing and popular friendships in television.
“Linda doesn’t believe they’ll ever speak again.”
All three declined requests to comment.
