TOWIE’s Ferne McCann opens up about filming her breakup on Stephs Packed Lunch

TOWIE’s Ferne McCann has opened up about going through her latest breakup while in the midst of filming for her reality show, First Time Mum.

The 31-year-old and marketing manager Jack Padgett ended their whirlwind romance this June.

The mother-of-one revealed that Jack called time on their relationship because Ferne wasn’t ‘on brand’ enough for him.

She discussed the difficulty of having to deal with her heartbreak on camera in an appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch on Thursday.

Ferne explained: “I went through a breakup in the midst of filming and I really didn’t want to talk about it.

“I just wanted to lay in bed and cry and watch Sex and the City and eat chocolate ice cream.

“But I had to get up and film and work so I thought i’m just going to cover it and be honest.”

The star said that she was happy that she had shared her feelings and how she coped with her fans because she hoped it would help others going through their own breakups.

“I always wear my heart on my sleeve and I’m so glad I did because watching that episode back and vocalising my feelings of how it felt and how I got through it, I felt that if I was watching that while going through a breakup it would feel so reassuring.

“Many people in the DMs and on social and out and about have said it was very relatable.”

Steph then asked her if there were any moments that she wanted cut from the show of her breakup or of her ex.

Ferne replied: “I’ve had so many moments where I watched it back and I thought I can’t believe I did that, cut that out!

“But no I just roll with it and I think the more open and honest you are as a reality star, if you don’t self-edit the more people can get to know you and the better the show.”
