Pregnant Ferne McCann has been slated by her friend who suggested it’s her own fault she’s a single mum.
Ferne, 26, found out she was expecting shortly after her ex boyfriend Arthur Collins was arrested in connection of an acid attack in a London club back in April.
The presenter has been faced by pretty cruel trolls since announcing her pregnancy but now one of her former TOWIE co-star’s Vas Morgan has given his strong opinion on the situation.
Speaking to Star magazine Vas said: “I feel really sorry for her. I love Ferne and, what happened to her, it’s not her fault.
“It’s her choice of men, but she’s feeling the brunt of it.”
Ferne, who is four months pregnant, recently appeared on This Morning to talk about her unexpected pregnancy for the first time.
Back in May Ferne broke down on the famous sofa as she spoke about the kindness she’s received from the public.
“Messages on Instagram have been so touching and so humbling, that is what I am so grateful for,” she told hosts Holly and Phil.
“I think that is what gets me the most; people’s kindness. It’s been lovely.
“Being in the public eye I was concerned, and thought the public will judge me and have an opinion which they are entitled to do.
“But I didn’t need to worry because the public have been so amazing and so supportive,” she added.
Following her appearance Ferne thanked her fans in a sweet post on Instagram.
She wrote: “I wanted to thank you all for the support and kind messages over the last few weeks.
“I’m overwhelmed and so grateful, your kind words have meant the world – from the bottom of my heart – THANKYOU.”
Meanwhile its been reported that the star is still in contact with her ex despite being locked up awaiting trial.
A source told The Sun: “Ferne has obviously ended her relationship with Arthur but she has been in contact with him since his arrest.
“They have spoken on the phone recently. The relationship is over but obviously they feel there are things to discuss.”
