‘I’m more fun and sexy since being a mum!’
Former TOWIE star, Ferne McCann, 27, says she can’t wait for her best mate Billie Faiers’ hen do, and confesses that she’s ready to hit the dating scene hard…
HAS YOUR STYLE CHANGED SINCE HAVING SUNDAY?
Yeah! It’s gone the opposite – it’s more fun and sexy! You would think that I would go a little more conservative, but I like to be playful. I think when you have a baby, you lose your identity a bit. I am now just known as ‘Sunday’s mum’, so I want to balance it out with my style.
WILL YOU CHRISTEN SUNDAY?
I would love for Sunday to be christened. It’s definitely on the cards, because I got christened. I went to a very nice Church of England school, and I wouldn’t say I’m a practising Christian, but I had such a lovely time at school. WHO WILL BE HER GODPARENTS? I have an idea, but I haven’t made that final decision. I wanted to get her christened this year, but I don’t know if I will have time because it’s summer, then it’s her first birthday, and then it’s Christmas. I’ll do it next year!
WOULD YOU CONSIDER JAMES ‘ARG’ ARGENT TO BE GODFATHER, AS YOU’RE BOTH GOOD FRIENDS? We’re so close! He’s an angel, and I am so grateful that he is in mine and Sunday’s lives. I don’t know if he’ll be godfather, because I have got my really close friend, Carl. He’s my best friend. So, I don’t know – it will be tough to make that decision.
YOU RECENTLY SAID YOU WERE READY TO DATE AGAIN. HAS ANYONE TRIED TO SET YOU UP? Oh, God. Everyone is always trying to set me up! All my friends are like, ‘What about him?’ on Instagram. I love the summer, when you’re out, having a few drinks with a bit of harmless flirting. I feel like now I’m ready to do that again. Obviously, last year, I was pregnant, and it was all mental, but now I’m ready to mingle.
WHAT OUTFIT WOULD YOU WEAR FOR YOUR FIRST DATE?
A MissPap outfit. Obviously, a dating rule is you don’t want to put everything on show! So, I would probably go for a floral playsuit with a pair of heels.
YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY SPOKEN ABOUT YOUR ANXIETY, HOW HAS THAT BEEN RECENTLY?
I think everyone suffers with a touch of anxiety. It’s the way you deal with it – to bring yourself back up and move on. I feel really good at the moment, the best I have been. Maybe I’m just skimming through life, but when I’m busy, I haven’t got time to overthink. And that’s what it was – overthinking and wallowing in my own thoughts.
WILL YOU BE GOING TO BILLIE FAIERS’ WEDDING?
Yes. We’re organising the hen do now. We’re planning different outfits, because we’re doing themed days, so I’m so excited about that! And it will be my first holiday away from Sunday...
ARE YOU NERVOUS ABOUT THAT? I know she will be in safe hands, and it’s for such a big deal – it’s my best friend’s hen do. Ferne McCann X MissPap Drop II is out now
With bestie Billie Will Arg do the honours?
