The episode of Ferne McCann: First Time Mum, which goes out tonight at 9pm on ITVBe, sees Ferne open up about her single mum lifestyle.

"When I actually stop and think about my situation... I never actually let myself get to that stage where I want to meet someone," she says to a friend, beginning to break down.

"I'm so ready to meet someone now, I don't want to be on my own."

"Being away with my sister, her husband, the guys in Spain... Seeing people with their kids in a partnership, it is really hard," she continues.

"Because I feel like it's all on me, I just want that affection and love.

"I want to grow up and have a family, and I want to get married as well."
