TOWIE icon Ferne McCann admits she originally turned down First Time Mum show

Reality star Ferne McCann returns to our screens on Thursday with the latest series of her warts and all show First Time Mum.

The 30-year-old yummy mummy and her daughter Sunday are back as cameras follow the former TOWIE star as she juggles motherhood and a career in the spotlight.

Discussing the upcoming sixth series of the ITVBe show, an excited Ferne told Daily Star Online: "I'm really looking forward to everyone seeing it.

"It's a great series and I'm really proud of it. You'll see how me and Sunday cope with lockdown, I turn 30 and my grandfather turns 90.

"At the start of every series I always feel rusty but it's great to be back."

While opening up about the latest First Time Mum series, Ferne admitted that she turned down the reality show when producers pitched the idea to her when she fell pregnant back in 2017.

The Essex beauty explained: "I started filming it when I was pregnant and now Sunday's nearly three and with every chapter in her life, a new challenge arises.

"I didn't straight away say yes to making the show at the beginning. I actually said no and turned it down.

"It wasn't on my radar at the time for a lot of different reasons, like being pregnant and having the first time mum nerves you'd have naturally, but I love it."

While Ferne is happily single and focusing on herself and Sunday at the moment, she revealed that she has a secret admirer.

"It was the maddest thing that has ever happened to me," she explained.

"He just completely came out of the blue and took me by surprise.

"You see on the show I'm like 'I'm not looking for anyone' and 'I'm concentrating on me' but this guy basically showered me in loads of gorgeous gifts."

Viewers will see Ferne celebrate turning the big 3-0 on the latest series and she admits that she did "have a wobble" when she reached the milestone in August this year.

The former I'm A Celebrity contestant said: "It was a mixed bag of emotions for me especially having a birthday in lockdown.

"I planned so much for turning 30, basically like I was planning for my wedding, and for it not to happen was really disappointing.

"I definitely had that wobble thinking of 'oh god I'm still single at 30' but I've realised life doesn't work like that."

Things weren't all bad for Ferne though as her secret admirer swooped in to save the day with a private jet to Cannes.

"You'll have to tune into the show to find out what happens next," Ferne teased.
