The Real Housewives of Cheshire star Rachel Lugo has spoken for the first time about her reunion with friend and co-star Dawn Ward after the pair fell out during a dinner party.
The pair had been friends for over 20 years, with neither saying a bad word about one another or bickering.
Shortly after their disagreement, Rachel was left furious after seeing Dawn laughing and joking with co-star Hanna Miraftab, who Dawn had vowed not to be friends with after a falling out.
Now, Rachel has exclusively revealed to Daily Star Online how they managed to patch their friendship up and are once again inseparable.
"It was Nicole [Sealey] that called us both during lockdown on a Facetime call and Nicole's signal went, and it left just me and Dawn on there," she said.
The bubbly blonde went on to say: "It was really awkward, we just talked and it was only a couple of minutes before Nicole came on and we hadn't spoken.
"And we were just like 'er, this is awkward, I've missed you'. We just realised it wasn't worth it, everybody was going through so much.

"It was really nice how it happened actually but really unexpected."
Rachel, an identical twin has documented her close bond with sister Kate who frequently appears on the reality show but the pair were left separated when the world went into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Speaking about reuniting with her sister, Rachel told us: "It was amazing, I hadn't seen her for nearly 11 months, you don't see us together on the show but it was so fantastic to catch up with her."
The mother-of-five was dealt a shattering blow when she revealed she was divorcing her husband of 24years but has since started looking for love once more.
Speaking about dating, the businesswoman said she had dated a couple of people but sadly the relationships hadn't worked out.
"There's so many apps out there, people talk to so many people, I can't say I particularly like it, but you have to put yourself out there, I want to be in a relationship," she gushed.
However, Rachel admitted that her celebrity status can often attract people for all the wrong reasons.
Speaking about the pressure, she said: "It either intimidates them and they think I'm going to kick off over dinner, or they go the other way and say 'I'm a huge fan, I'd love to take you to dinner,'
"I want them to know me for the person that I am, not because I'm attached to a show, I want them to see that I'm a mum-of-five and I work really hard."
