Ferne McCann reveals she ‘wets herself all the time’ after becoming a mum

Brave star opens up about her incontinence battle

She recently revealed that she finds life as a single mum “lonely” and is looking for love.

But now Ferne McCann has opened up about the secret health battle that has made her scared to leave the house.

First Time Mum star Ferne dotes on daughter Sunday, who turns two in November.

However, Ferne has revealed that since giving birth to the tot, she has suffered from incontinence that sees the star “wetting herself all the time”.

Opening up to OK!, Ferne revealed that she went for a “Mummy MOT” after a trip to the gym resulted in embarrassment for the former TOWIE star.

She said: “I pride myself on my fitness and all of a sudden I couldn’t do the workouts I loved without wetting myself. One time I was on a running machine and I had to stop because I’d completely wet myself.”

Doctors diagnosed a prolapsed bladder.

Common after childbirth, the condition is caused by the bladder wall bulging into the vaginal space.

Revealing that the condition meant her quest to find love was put on hold, Ferne revealed: “I haven’t wanted to go out for dinner with a man and then be constantly asking to go to the toilet. I’ve avoided going on dates completely.”

The reality TV star is now following an eight-week exercise programme, where she will perform a range of Kegel exercises – which aim to strengthen the pelvic floor.

And, she says, the experience hasn’t put her off the idea of adding to her brood.

She said: “I definitely would love to have another baby. When I first had Sunday people were obsessed with asking if I’d like to have more, but I know now that I 100 per cent would like to have more children.”

Back in the spring, Ferne and Sunday were bridesmaids at a family wedding and, the star says, after watching her pal Billie Faiers get married in the Maldives, she hopes it’s on the cards for her at some point too.
