Ferne McCann has started dating one of her old friends after taking inspiration from pal Danielle Armstrong.
The reality star, 29, has known the mystery man ‘for ages’ and revealed they’re in the early stages of a romance, days after breaking down in tears about the struggles of being a single mother to daughter Sunday, two, on her reality show First Time Mum.
Ferne’s revelation comes after her best friend Danielle, 31, found love with her best friend of 22 years, with whom she is expecting her first child.

‘I always feel when I meet someone and speak about it publicly, I’ll do an interview a few months down the line saying, “Yeah it didn’t work out”.’
‘So I don’t want to put too much pressure on it, but there is definitely someone who has caught my eye.’
The former TOWIE star said she would ‘love to have more children’ to give little Sunday brothers and sisters.

Ferne shares her daughter with ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins, who she split from when he carried out an atrocious acid attack at an east London nightclub in April 2017.
Arthur was found guilty of five counts of grievous bodily harm and nine of actual bodily harm, and was jailed for 20 years.
Since splitting from the convicted criminal, Ferne’s love life has been relatively quiet, but she recently admitted she is now ready to ‘find love and move on’ from the horrific incident.
On Wednesday, Ferne’s close pal Danielle announced that she was expecting her first child with boyfriend and best friend of 22 years, Tom.

The former TOWIE star confirmed back in September that she had found love again with her childhood sweetheart, following her split from her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years Daniel Spiller.
It comes as Ferne broke down in tears during Wednesday’s episode of First Time Mum, as she revealed she feels ready to find love again and settle down after being burned by relationships in the past.
After reflecting on her current relationship status while on the trip away during a candid chat Ferne told Carl Cunard: ‘I never let myself get to that stage where I actually want to meet someone.
‘I’m so ready to meet someone now, I don’t want to be on my own.’

Ferne revealed that seeing her family and friends with partners has made her yearn for the same thing, she said: ‘Being away with my sister, her husband, the guys in Spain…
‘Seeing people with their kids in a partnership it is really hard because it’s all on me. I just want that affection and love and I want to grow up and have a family, I want to get married as well.’
Despite an earlier scene showing Ferne excitedly looking around her brand new house, she added that she feels there is still something slightly empty in her life.
She said: ‘Even though I’ve bought a house and I’m doing it on my own I do feel like something is missing. I feel like my relationship towards men is so messed up as well.’
Heartbreakingly, she added: ‘I just want to fall in love – is that too much to ask?’
