Fearne Cotton claims that Lily Allen serial-blanked her at the Brits

BBC TV presenter and radio DJ Fearne Cotton has claimed she was blanked several times by Lily Allen at last night's Brit Awards.

 The stunned 32-year-old told BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw that Allen avoided her "five times" at the London event.

"Lily Allen blanked me last night. Five times. She blanked me 5 times in a row," Cotton insisted.

She 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."

In response, Lily Allen has taken to Twitter to deny that she snubbed Cotton.

"I did not blank you. That is simply not true. I didn't see you or your husband," Allen wrote, adding: "Why couldn't you just come over [and] say hi yourself?"
