Ferne: Push­ing her­self too hard

Her friends want her to slow down a bit

Heat (UK) - - This Week: We're Obsessed With.. -

It’s meant to be a time to put your feet up – and scoff a cream cake or two – but gym-lov­ing Ferne Mccann is de­ter­mined not to use pregnancy as an ex­cuse for tak­ing it easy. “She’s push­ing her­self way too hard – she’s still ex­er­cis­ing five times a week,” an in­sider tells us. “There’s not an inch of fat on her, but she in­sists on hit­ting the tread­mill and do­ing body­build­ing rou­tines, which in­clude pump­ing heavy weights, squats and arm work.”

And cream cakes – or any kind of sweets – are a def­i­nite no-go, our in­sider says. “Ferne’s still on a con­trolled diet and she’s snack­ing on pro­tein 24/7 – things such as chicken and eggs. She knows she’s get­ting enough nutri­tion for her and the baby.”

But push­ing her­self so hard is re­sult­ing in one se­ri­ously shat­tered mum-to-be. “She’s tired and ex­hausted when she trains,” says the in­sider. And de­spite all the en­dor­phin-boost­ing work­outs, she’s strug­gling to con­trol her emo­tions, too. “It’s been tough be­ing preg­nant on her own, be­cause Ferne’s not a per­son with lots of friends – it’s only thanks to her mum she’s keep­ing sane,” our source adds.

Ferne is cur­rently sin­gle af­ter split­ting up with the father of her un­born child, Arthur Collins, fol­low­ing his ar­rest for his al­leged in­volve­ment in an acid at­tack.

“She’s de­pressed about not hav­ing a boyfriend,” our source con­tin­ues. “As much as she loves her mum, she doesn’t want to take her to all the show­biz par­ties. She feels very alone and just wants a man on her arm.”
