Ferne:

“I’ve trans­formed my body – now I want to find love”

Closer (UK) - - Contents - By Daisy Mclure

❛SHE’S BEEN EN­JOY­ING GO­ING ON NIGHTS OUT WITH PALS AND FLIRT­ING WITH GUYS AGAIN❜

She only gave birth S to her daugh­ter, Sun­day, three months ago, but Ferne Mccann has al­ready un­der­gone a to­tal trans­for­ma­tion, shed­ding an in­cred­i­ble 1st and drop­ping from a size 12 to an 8-10.

It took the star, 27, just a month to lose the weight af­ter fol­low­ing her for­mer TOWIE co-star Dan Os­borne’s 30 Day Chal­lenge pro­gramme. Last week, she showed off the re­sults, as well as her new­ly­dyed blonde hair and fuller lips.

A source says, “Af­ter giv­ing birth, Ferne was un­happy with her body, and her hor­mones left her feel­ing very in­se­cure. Be­fore she fell preg­nant she was a size 10, but was a 12 af­ter giv­ing birth. She looked bril­liant but she wanted to do some­thing to help her feel more like her­self.

“Ferne’s known Dan for years and trusts his ad­vice. He of­fered to help her come up with a work­out plan and she jumped at the chance. She’s still breast­feed­ing, so was very care­ful to en­sure she was con­sum­ing enough calo­ries.

EX­TREME WEIGHT LOSS

“The 30 Day Chal­lenge in­volves hav­ing a fruit and veg­etable smoothie for break­fast, then high-pro­tein lunches and din­ners, like sal­mon with brown rice or a chicken stir-fry. Ferne had pro­tein shakes af­ter her work­outs and lots of green tea and lemon in hot wa­ter. She did ton­ing ex­er­cises two to three times a week for an hour, in­clud­ing squats, burpees, lunges and arm work­outs.”

While Closer’s Dr Chris­tian thinks it’s great that Ferne has lost the weight through healthy eat­ing and ex­er­cise rather than a fad diet, he says new mums shouldn’t feel un­der pres­sure to slim down, and that Ferne lost the weight very quickly. He adds, “I’d rec­om­mend a weight loss of 1-2lbs a week rather than drop­ping too much too quickly.”

Ferne has pre­vi­ously opened up about her in­se­cu­ri­ties, and had a nose job in 2016 af­ter re­ceiv­ing cruel com­ments from trolls. And pals say the star, who once ad­mit­ted to be­ing “ad­dicted to ex­er­cise,” wants to keep up with her new life­style.

ON TOP OF THE WORLD

A source says, “She’s de­ter­mined to get down to a size 8 and wants to con­tinue with the plan. She feels like she’s re­gained her con­fi­dence and loves taking self­ies of her new body and show­ing it off in re­veal­ing out­fits. She’s on top of the world. Lots of new mums have been mes­sag­ing her for ad­vice and she wants to con­tinue to be a good ex­am­ple for them.”

It marks a dis­tinct turn­around for the star. Last year, she was left fac­ing her preg­nancy and then moth­er­hood alone when her ex, Arthur Collins – Sun­day’s fa­ther – was found guilty of an acid at­tack that in­jured 14 peo­ple and sen­tenced to 20 years in jail.

Ear­lier this year, she sparked fury for lik­ing an In­sta­gram post which called for his re­lease. Then, last month, as he ap­peared in court again for us­ing a smug­gled mo­bile phone in his cell – for which he had a fur­ther eight months added to his sen­tence – his bar­ris­ter re­vealed Ferne “oc­ca­sion­ally vis­its him” – some­thing Ferne strongly de­nied. His bar­ris­ter later clar­i­fied, “Un­for­tu­nately, my com­ments were mis­re­ported. I said that his daugh­ter has vis­ited him with HIS mother and sis­ter. I didn’t say ‘its’ mother.”

Now, with the past firmly be­hind her, pals say Ferne hopes to find her dream man.

A source says, “Ferne’s look­ing for some­one who’s the op­po­site of Arthur. She’s en­joy­ing nights out with friends and flirt­ing with guys again. She’s con­sid­er­ing go­ing back on Celebs Go Dat­ing, too. She’d like to find some­one older than her, ide­ally a man who has his own busi­ness or a well -estab­lished ca­reer. She’s ex­cited to see what the fu­ture holds.”
