Ferne has stayed mostly off the market ever since she split with her boyfriend of over five years, Charlie Sims, in March 2015. Though she mostly keeps a positive attitude and a big smile on her face, she recently admitted how much of a toll that the end of that relationship had on her.

‘I felt like I wanted to die when he cheated on me,’ she told OK! magazine in May. ‘I couldn’t eat, I slept in my mum’s bed and I had to take time off work. It was like I was ill.’

Yet she revealed that she was open to letting someone new into her life at the launch of her autobiography, Cross My Heart, telling Now: ‘It’d be lovely to kind of share my life and share things with someone else.

‘I’ve been single for over a year, and I’d love to meet someone now. They just have to be really genuine – someone that can make me laugh and is loyal. I’m really drawn to charismatic guys. Oh, and if they’re into food, I’m a real foodie, so all our like dates and stuff, would revolve around food.’

Here’s hoping that Arthur can be just that guy!
