Pregnant Ferne McCann finally breaks social media silence

The star hasn't been on her social media for over a week

Ferne McCann has broken her social media silence after she revealed she’s expecting her ex Arthur Collins’ baby.

He was this week arrested in connection with an acid attack at a nightclub in London.

The star hasn’t shared anything on her social media since the incident, and has deleted all photos of her and Arthur together.

But on Thursday Ferne, 26, liked a quote that her pal Vicky Pattison shared on her Instagram.

The post read: “I miss your face.”

The Geordie Shore star captioned the snap: “Long distance relationships are tough… @johnnoblejn.”

Following the horrific attack on Easter Monday Arthur Collins, 24, was arrested in connection with the attack.

And just a few days after the presenter revealed she is pregnant with his child.

In a statement to OK! Online her rep told them:

“Ferne is grateful for the sympathetic way news of her pregnancy has been covered and people’s support and obviously her first concern is for her child’s health.

“Accordingly she does not wish to discuss the pregnancy further given the early stage it is at and the immense strain that Ferne is currently under.”

They added: “Ferne is in no way seeking sympathy for her situation and is determined to do all she can to have a happy and healthy child and face the challenges of being a single parent.”

A close friend of Ferne’s reportedly told The Sun: “Ferne is absolutely devastated by what has happened.

“She cannot believe someone she loved is capable of doing what Arthur is accused of.”

It’s also been reported there are rumours that Ferne’s job on This Morning could be in jeopardy following the vile incident – despite her being completely innocent of any involvement in wrongdoing.

A show source told The Sun: “In light of events Ferne’s management have asked if she can take a couple of weeks off from filming This Morning.

“ITV bosses like Ferne and appreciate the work she’s been doing on the show, but it’s a family programme and given the headlines that she’s attracting now, it’s not the sort of image they want to be associated with.”
