Ferne McCann’s love life: Former TOWIE star’s relationship history revealed as she admits she’s met ‘the one’

Ferne McCann has had several high profile relationships in the past, one of which led her to give birth to her adorable daughter Sunday.

Recently, Ferne was utterly loved-up when OK! caught up with her. “I’ve got a big nervous grin,” she laughs when asked about her new boyfriend Albie Gibbs, 25.

Here, we take a look back at the star's relationship with Albie, and the rest of her dating history…

Ferne takes on TOWIE with Charlie Sims

Ferne joined the cast on TOWIE in 2013 for the ninth series of the Essex-based reality show.

When she became a regular on the ITV Be show, she was already in a relationship with then-castmate Charlie Sims, who's stepped away from the limelight to pursue a completely different career since.

The pair went out for a total of six years before splitting in 2015.

Ferne revealed to OK! Online that the teenage sweethearts are no longer in contact. She said: "I've completely cut all contact with Charlie now. Literally we just haven't spoken."

A brief affair with Dan Osborne

During their six years together, Charlie and Ferne had a few 'off' periods. Cue Dan Osborne.

The former TOWIE regular – who is married to EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa – dated Ferne briefly.

The pair went rock climbing on the show, but Ferne later admitted that it was one of the worst dates ever.

Did Ferne have a fling with funny man Russell Brand?

According to reports, the former hairdresser also had brief fling with Russell Brand.

A source revealed: "They clicked straight away when they met a few years back and went on quite a few dates.

"Things only fizzled out when Russell moved to LA and Ferne started to get close to Charlie from the show," they told the Mail Online.

Ferne's other flirtations

The reality star was also spotted kissing footballer Dele Alli, but nothing else emerged after the one off club snap.

More recently the star admitted she had the hots for comedian Joel Dommett, who is now married, as he took part in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

During her own time in the jungle, Ferne grew close to former Union J singer George Shelley, but nothing materialised between the pair.

Ferne and Arthur Collins

After initially teasing the relationship on social media, Ferne later confirmed she was in a relationship with now ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins.

He was later arrested and charged with 14 counts of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and one count of throwing corrosive fluid in connection with an east London nightclub acid attack.

Ferne then confirmed she was pregnant with her first baby, and made an emotional return to This Morning, opening up on her excitement about becoming a first time mum.

The star's adorable daughter, Sunday, was born in November 2017 and The Only Way is Essex beauty confirmed the happy news on Instagram.

Jordan Hames

In October 2019, Ferne revealed she was looking for a husband after her relationship with Love Island star Jordan Hames fizzled out.

In an exclusive chat with OK!, the former TOWIE star opened up about why things didn't work out between the pair.

"We’re at totally different stages in our lives and it fizzled out," she revealed. "Deep down I know I can’t just be snogging Love Islanders, I need to be looking for a husband! I'm looking for love."

Ferne admitted that she and Jordan, 24, did meet up after they were spotted kissing at an event in London, but it wasn't meant to be.

"We went for a cup of tea at the Ham Yard Hotel and my friend was there. It wasn’t an official date, we were just both in London. Everyone married me off after we kissed but it’s not a thing any more," she said.

Albie Gibbs

Ferne is currently dating Albie Gibbs, 25, and has gushed over him to OK!

In fact, Ferne’s so besotted, that she even jokes that her ITVBe reality show First Time Mum – now in its fifth series – may need a name change.

“The name will have to change when I decide to have my second child because then I’ll be a second-time mum,” says Ferne, who already has daughter Sunday, two.

Does that mean plans to expand her family are on the horizon? “I’d absolutely love to have more children and grow my family,” she tells OK!, adding, “When you’re turning 30 it’s definitely a time in your life when you start to think about settling down.”

When asked if Albie's met Sunday, Ferne said: "I’ve been with him for a good few months and he’s met Sunday because she’s with me all the time. We’ve also been on the same holidays. We both went to Dubai for New Year a couple of years ago and he first met her there.
