Ferne: Pushing herself too hard
Her friends want her to slow down a bit
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.”
She’s been doing intense workouts
