The YouTube star stated that Fred had "disrespected" her by saying he could be her dad after they'd had a conversation about both of her parents' deaths. The feud left fans fuming - and Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly soon headed online to share their own thoughts.
Appearing on Instagram Live, they read out the comment: "Poor Fred," and repeated it before adding: "Poor Fred was trending earlier I saw." They then asked: "What did you make of that?" and weighed in.
Dec said: "Seems like it all kind of snowballed out of proportion." Ant added: "I think she kind of took it out of context didn't she?"
"I think it all went out of proportion," Dec chimed in as Ant said he didn't believe Fred meant it how it was perceived. Dec added: "I think he was just going for the term of the phrase 'I'm old enough to be your dad,'."
Ant added he took it the same way as they both read out comments which said: "Poor Fred". The feud appeared to take place after confusion between the pair, with Nella later telling Fred not to speak to her.

She explained that he'd made a comment the day before which left her infuriated as she told him: "You turned around to me, with an attitude and said, ‘You know I could be your dad, right?’
"To me, I don’t care how you said it to me, it’s disrespectful and I don’t want to talk to you. I don’t want to be around you. I only allow people to disrespect me once. You hurt my feelings. I was very upset…"
She told him that she wants to stay away from him and not talk to her. Fred immediately apologised and said: "I am sorry I've offended you.
"I am unaware that what I said would lead to this conversation, I only said that in a way because I am older than you, I am 51 and you’re 26." Nella told Fred she "accepted his apology" but didn't want to be friends.
