But with only a few months to go until her due date in November, the Essex star has also been giving fans an insight into life as a mum-to-be.

And it turns out Ferne has some pretty strong views about one particular aspect of her pregnancy, as the 27-year-old has admitted she’s determined not to find out the little one’s sex.

The expectant mum told Reveal magazine: ‘One of the main reasons I didn’t find out is because I’ve been dreaming of the moment that the midwife or my mum holds the baby up to me and says “It’s a…”.

She then added: ‘So many people do that whole gender-reveal party, but I’m really against it.’

Eeek! It looks like the reality star isn’t taking after pal and new mum Binky Felstead who revealed she was having a little girl on an episode of Made In Chelsea.

Ferne continued: ‘I’m a very impatient person and I thought I’d want to know but now I’m just enjoying every moment so I want the surprise.’

Despite keeping the sex of her first-born a secret it looks like the Essex lady hasn’t been able to help herself having a little bit of a guess.

I’ve got a gut feeling that I’m having a boy,’ she said. ‘Although I might as well have found out because I’ve measured the size of my bump and google boy and girl symptoms.’

Ferne discovered she was expecting her first child with ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins not long before he was arrested in connection with an acid attack at a London nightclub back in April.

Arthur is will be tried in October over the alleged attack at Mangle club that left two victims partially blinded and 14 people burnt.

I’m A Celeb star, Ferne has since opened up about bringing up her baby alone, previously insisting: ‘It’s not about me but about my child. I’ll do my best for my baby.’

We know you’ll be a great mum, Ferne!
