Who is Ferne McCann? Former Towie and I'm a Celebrity star whose ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins was convicted over acid attack

She gave birth to baby Sunday in November 2017, but what has happened to her ex-boyfriend and the father of baby Sunday, Arthur Collins? Here is what we know…

Who is Ferne McCann, how old is she and what's her background?

Ferne Alice McCann was born on August 6, 1990, in Brentwood, Essex, England, meaning she's 28.

Her mum Gilly, has also appeared in some episodes of Towie and was seen giving Ferne a massage to get her ready for a date in Celebs Go Dating.

Ferne also has a sister Sophie and a one-year-old nephew named Ronnie.

Prior to getting her spot on Towie, Ferne was a hair stylist and colourist for six years.

Ferne had her first brush with stardom when she finished in the top 15 in Miss England in 2012.

However, it wasn't until the following year that she became a household name after her debut on the ninth series of Towie.

She described herself as an outspoken, confrontational b****" on the show.

Ferne was a regular on the series until she quit in 2016, explaining she felt she had become a "pantomime character" and had to leave for her "sanity".

When did Ferne have her baby?

Ferne announced on November 2, 2017 that she had given birth to a little girl.

The 27-year-old reality star revealed on Instagram she had welcomed her daughter into the world a week ahead of her due date.

She shared a picture of the sleeping tot – with her head cropped out of the shot – on Instagram and, alongside a string of heart emojis, wrote: "Wellcome to the world my darling. Didn’t expect to see you a week early. I’m so in love & bursting with pride. It’s a girl [sic]".

What are Ferne's plans for her baby?

Ferne now plans to raise her child alone as a single parent, after calling time on her relationship with Arthur Collins, who is the father of her baby.

But the star admits it has not been easy.

In an interview with OK! magazine, Ferne said: "Initially I was devastated.

"What I had planned and was getting excited about had disappeared in a matter of moments.

"It was so hard to deal with what happened but then I realised it was not about me, but about my child.

"I'll do my best for my baby."

Ferne revealed in March that she plans to take her daughter to visit her father in prison.

What happened between Ferne McCann and Arthur Collins?

Ferne and Arthur rekindled their romance last March after dating in the summer of 2016.

She even revealed her plans to move in with him and eventually get married.

But Ferne dumped Arthur after he accused of being connected to an acid attack in Dalston and went missing shortly afterwards.

She had reportedly told him she was having his child just before the nightclub attack in which two people were blinded.

After he was charged in connection with the attack, Ferne confirmed she was expecting and said she doesn't want "to discuss her ex-boyfriend".

On November 13 2017, Arthur was found guilty of carrying out the acid attack in the packed London nightclub.

In April 2018, Ferne was pictured taking baby Sunday to see her daddy in prison despite previously vowing that he would never see her again.

A source told The Sun Online: "Ferne went to visit Arthur because it is his legal right to see Sunday.

"She is doing it because she has to. Not because she wants to."

On October 3 he had an appeal against his sentence rejected by the Court of Appeal.

Who else has Ferne McCann dated?

Ferne dated Towie's Charlie Sims on and off for five years, writing in her 2016 autobiography, Cross My Heart: "I will always love and adore Charlie — he was my best friend and I hope he always will be."

She's also been linked to a number of other men, including comedian Russell Brand and Premier League ace Dele Alli.

Ferne recently told Closer magazine – before Arthur's arrest came to light – that while she is a romantic at heart, she always ends up with bad lads.

She said: "I’m always going for similar sorts of guys and it’s just not working for me at the moment.

“I know what qualities I’m after I just never seem to go for those. I go for mean boys.”

More recently, the former Towie star was pictured holding hands with Love Island's Charlie Brake after a boozy night out.

What else is Ferne McCann known for?

Ferne participated in the 15th series of I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, appearing as one of the late arrivals and ultimately finishing in third place — after controversially swallowing a live spider.

In January 2016, she joined ITV's This Morning as a showbiz reporter.

She also appears frequently on Channel Five chat show Up Late With Rylan, in the segment McCann or McCann't — in which she attempts to complete a challenge in a short amount of time.

Along with Vicky Pattison, who she made friends within the jungle, Ferne also landed her own show on ITVbe following the pair on a road trip around Italy.

In 2016 she made her stage debut as Myrtle Wilson in a London production of The Great Gatsby.

Has Ferne McCann had plastic surgery?

Ferne revealed in 2016 that she'd had a nose job, following years of insecurity about her appearance and cruel taunts on social media.

She said: “It is subtle and I wanted it to be subtle. I didn’t want it to change my whole face."

More recently she attempted a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, documenting the "fat freezing" procedure on Instagram.
