This Morning favourite lands own reality show

A fly-on-the-wall show giving all the behind-the-scenes deets? Bring it on!

She’s been a familiar face on our screens for the last four years thanks to TOWIE, This Morning and I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

And now Ferne McCann has landed her very first solo reality show called Ferne McCann: First Time Mum.

It’s about time!

Unsurprisingly, given the title, the one-off programme will follow pregnant Ferne as she prepares for the birth of her first child.

The fact poor Ferne’s had a difficult time of it has been widely documented.

She was forced to announce her pregnancy early after her ex-boyfriend, Arthur Collins, was arrested in connection with an acid attack at a London night club in April.

Arthur, 25, has denied carrying out the attack.

The TV show will follow Ferne, 27, as she goes through the emotions, including joy at her pregnancy and happiness at finding love, to the heartbreak of splitting up and adjusting to life as a soon-to-be single mum.

However, in typical Ferne style, she remains positive and optimistic throughout, helped by her rock solid circle of friends and family.

The cameras will follow Ferne as her pregnancy progresses and capture everything right up until the moment she gives birth to a little boy or girl (she’s yet to discover the baby’s gender).

Along the way, viewers will get to meet some of Ferne’s nearest and dearest, and watch as the TV star explores different spiritual and alternative pregnancy methods.

Clocking in at 90 minutes, the one-off programme will air on ITVBe this autumn.

We can’t wait!

Ferne found fame on The Only Way Is Essex back in 2013, before going on to finish third on I’m A Celebrity two years later.

She’s also searched for love on E4’s Celebs Go Dating and served as a roving showbiz correspondent for This Morning since 2016.

It’s a double dose of good news for Ferne fans this week: as well as landing her own show, she’s said to be returning to This Morning in the near future.

She’s been absent from TV screens for weeks while she focuses on her first pregnancy, but sources claim Ferne is planning a big return to This Morning soon to update everyone on her pregnancy.

A source told The Sun that former I’m A Celebrity star Ferne has some other work commitments to finish up right now, but after they’re done, she’ll be back on the sofa chatting to Holly and Phil.

“She’ll continue to talk about her pregnancy and give viewers an update on how she’s doing,” said the insider.

“Viewers are keen to know the latest with her, given the audience it attracts.”

The last time Ferne appeared on This Morning to talk about her pregnancy, she ended up in tears as she admitted it had been a “very stressful” time and she was just trying to focus on her unborn child.

“It has been such a stressful, surreal situation to be in, but I’m actually feeling good, feeling positive,” she said.

“Because I’m pregnant I think that’s given me strength and hope to get through this.”

“This isn’t how I imagined my first pregnancy to be, but it’s not about me. This is about the baby.

“My main concern and priority is the baby,” she added.

“The future for me… I’m not going to say it’s going to be easy, but I’m excited.

“I just want to be the best possible mum I can be.”

Best of luck, Ferne!
