A TV chef has sparked a new feud with Strictly star Saffron Barker after revealing her anger at Spotify.
Chef and TV personality Gizzi Erskine took to social media to express her huge frustration at Spotify, after hers and Sydney Lima’s podcast is set to be made without them.
The two women created the podcast Sex, Lies & DM Slides, but it’s now being fronted by Strictly star Saffron Barker and Anastasia Kingsnorth.
Expressing her anger, Gizzi explained she and Sydney had created the podcast but it’d now been “stolen” by Spotify.
The chef asked for Saffron, 22, and Anastasia to hold Spotify accountable, and called the whole thing “gross.”
Sharing a photo of Saffron and Anastasia on her Instagram account, Gizzi wrote: “I am shocked and horrified to learn that mine and @sydneylimaa podcast @sexliesdmslides that we made with @spotifyuk is being made again without us. That’s fine.

“If Spotify don’t want to make it with us – then that’s fine, but DO NOT STEAL our format and name. WE created it (the format and name) in MY kitchen over a series of months. Spotify just paid for it to be made. I am absolutely up to my f****** eyeballs at being exploited by the big corporations and money people.
“A show not just built on us exposing the sex lives and abuse, but made with documentary integrity and intelligence. This as everyone can see if daylight robbery. I am not blaming the girls, @anastasiakingsnorth and @saffronbarker who have almost definitely been caught up in this, but would ask them to hold Spotify accountable for this as it’s gross. F***. We are SO angry and upset.
“To add insult to injury @spotifyuk @spotify have taken down mine and Sydney’s show.”
Gizzi’s pals were horrified by the news, with one writing: “WTF????” and another penned: “This is shocking and shameless. An outrageous move.”
A third added: “Whoa. Nuts move.”
Gizzi went on to further express her annoyance at what had happened when Saffron posted a snap of the podcast on her own Instagram.

We have been waiting nearly 6 years for a project together and this is finally it, still doesn’t feel real actually writing this!!”
Taking to the comments, Gizzi wrote: “Wowowow @spotify. This was our creative. How is this allowed. We came up with the name. The format. Everything. This is so f*****.”
The comment was liked by over 1,000 people as they backed Gizzi up in her anger at Spotify.
Gizzi shot to fame when presented two seasons of Channel 4's cookery show Cook Yourself Thin in 2011.
The show was promoted as a “programme that shows you how to cook what you want and still lose weight… how to have your cake and eat it.”
She also soon became known for her trademark beehive hairstyle and 60s clothes.
She has also presented cookery features for ITV1's This Morning and Sky1's Taste.
