Ferne McCann: Dating History
Ferne dated her TOWIE Co-star on and off for about 6 years. The two met on the sets of the show. In her autobiography, “Cross My Heart,” Ferne acknowledged that she will always love and adore Charlie as he was her best friend, and she hoped that would remain the same, always. Sims had announced the break up on Twitter, and Ferne was, apparently, devasted. She said, talking about the unexpected nature of the split, told in an interview that till that fateful morning, Sims was the man she wanted to marry. Things had been amazing and suddenly, Charlie asked her that its either him or the show. It is obvious as to what she chose.
During a break with her relationship with Charlie, she was also reportedly dating Dan Osborne.
Ferne then dated Arthur Collins in the summer of 2016 for a while, and then again in March 2017. Ferne became pregnant with her child. However, he was charged with causing grievous injury in connection to an acid attack in a London nightclub. Ferne declared her pregnancy two days after he was convicted and announced that she planned to be a single mother. On more than one occasion, Ferne has said how Arthur robbed her of a normal pregnancy. He had to serve 20 years in jail.
Her next major relationship was with press-shy Albie Gibbs. We don’t have any pictures of them together because Albie hated to be in the spotlight. However, Ferne was very passionate about him. She also revealed that she thought that he was the one. But they split due to the hugely different lives they led and because of the long-distance they had to maintain.
She was spotted kissing the Multimillionaire from Love Island, Charlie Braker, but clarified that they weren’t dating to one magazine. She clearly said that they were just friends. Other than that, she also revealed that she had a “romance” with Russell Brand in an interview with the Sun. Ferne also dated another TOWIE star, Frank Major, but it was a short-lasting flame. Dele Ali and Ferne were also spotted kissing once.
So Who Is Ferne McCann dating now?
After her split from Albie Gibbs, she was spotted more than once with a model. At first, she neither responded nor denied to the rumours about her dating the English model, Jack Padgett. She announced their relationship to the world and went on a very PDA vacation with her boyfriend to South Africa this 2021. They even spent the 3rd lockdown together. Though they looked pretty cosy during their holidays, the TOWIE star and her hunky boyfriend have kept their relationship largely private. They went Instagram official last February.
