Linda Robson has squashed any rumours of a feud with her Birds of a Feather co-star Pauline Quirke by sharing a picture of them enjoying a reunion over lunch.

Last year, it was reported Robson and Quirke, who had been friends since childhood, were no longer on speaking terms after an alleged row.

But the group enjoyed a surprise reunion and shared a sweet photo from their lunch on social media on Wednesday.

It in, Robson can been seen smiling alongside Quirke plus fellow Birds star Lesley Joseph as they enjoyed a get together at The Delaunay restaurant in London’s Covent Garden.

“A lovely lunch with my beautiful friends in the @thedelaunay,” Loose Women star Robson wrote in the accompanying caption.

Their fans were thrilled to see it too.

“So lovely to see you altogether again,” wrote one.

“Glad friends of a feather flock together,” agreed a second.

A third took it as a sign that new episodes could be in the pipeline, writing: “Just one more episode.”

Birds of a Feather first aired in 1989 with Robson and Quirke playing sisters Tracey Stubbs and Sharon Theodopolopodous respectively.

Robson and Quirke starred together in 12 series and two Christmas specials of Birds of a Feather.

Quirke declined to return for a reunion in 2020, however, fuelling reports of a falling out.

Addressing the supposed rift previously, Robson told The Mirror: “People say Pauline and I have fallen out. Obviously I couldn’t see her during lockdown but I’ve seen her since. She just doesn’t want to act anymore. She’s had enough - it’s long hours.”

The Standard has approached Robson and Quirke’s representatives for comment.
