Despite looking pretty loved up recently with Essex man Arthur Collins, Ferne isn’t rushing into anything just yet: ‘We are not official, he is someone who is definitely close to me but I still count myself as being single and I’m a single girl having fun. I still feel so young and I love hanging out with my girls.’

Girl power!

A source close to Ferne revealed that the pair are definitely enjoying each others’ company: ‘So far it’s all been very low key. They’ve been enjoying dates at Roka in Canary Wharf and hanging out with Ferne’s non celeb mates away from the cameras.’

However, at the TV Choice Awards last night, Ferne confirmed she’s not off the market just yet: ‘Arthur is just someone I love to spend my time with. I do still count myself as being single.’

It seems like Ferne is all about the positive vibes recently, and we can’t blame her. She has been going from strength to strength in her career and her brand new Amalfi Roadtrip show with close jungle pal and fellow reality TV icon Vicky Pattison is just kicking off!

However, Ferne, who has spoken openly about her recent nose job, admitted to feeling insecure: ‘I seem so confident and loud, well I am loud, but on the inside, it really fazed me. I’m not getting it done because I want to get closer to being beautiful. It’s not about that.’

We couldn’t agree more, Ferne!
