Instead, Linda repeated her role as Sharon’s sister Tracey Stubbs, performing only alongside Lesley Joseph

Lesley, 75, is best known for playing Sharon and Tracey’s neighbor Dorien Green on the long-running sitcom

But an insider claimed: “Pauline was not approached about the Christmas special. The atmosphere on the set had previously become difficult, there were real and tense problems”

The insider added that Pauline’s alleged “demanding” and “difficult” behavior on the set was blamed for the original case

“Both Linda and Lesley were sad that Pauline didn’t want to return to film a 30th anniversary episode Linda and Pauline were very close, less Pauline and Lesley. It’s all very sad

“I think Pauline was annoyed with the attention Lesley received and it was very tense and difficult to navigate at times”

After Birds Of A Feather went off the air in 2017, he returned for a one-off Christmas special called We Gotta Get Out Of This Place in 2020

Fans of the show learned that Sharon was stuck on a COVID-19-stricken cruise ship on the other side of the world

Lesley told ITV’s Lorraine at the time that the cast of Birds Of A Feather “missed” Pauline

She said, “We missed her and it was a very strange feeling because like you said we’ve been together for over 30 years so it’s an amazing connection

“I think Pauline wants to focus on other things that I totally understand – that’s absolutely fine”
