When Michael isn't feuding with his longtime frenemy Lewis Bloor he's got another drama to deal with - well this is TOWIE after all.
During a conversation with Chloe Lewis, the Essex newbie called Ferne a "drunken mistake" after the pair kissed in Marbella.
Ferne then claimed he'd kissed her two weeks later whilst sober and also asked her out - an offer that she turned down.
Explaining the situation, Mike told us he wasn't actually calling Ferne a mistake but was actually referring to the "childish" situation.
He said: "I think that got blown out of proportion massively. The whole 'drunken mistake' thing wasn't referring to Ferne as an individual, it was referring to the actual circumstances.
"We were drunk in a night club and kissed, for me personally that's not the way I do things, I think it's quite childish and immature, its just a bit silly.
"I don't really do that, I'm more likely to take a girl out. So I wasn't directly referring to Ferne, but I do know that it came across as quite rude."
So, has Michael apologised for his comment... "I've not had a chance to explain myself but when I do see her I'm sure there will be a few words exchanged." We have no doubt about that! Not that Ferne has time to chat - she's got far more exciting things to get on with....
