The former TOWIE star unveiled her blossoming tum on This Morning

Ferne McCann returned to our televisions for the first time on Thursday as she made an emotional appearance on This Morning.

And while the former TOWIE star opened up about having a baby by ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins – who’s been charged with 15 offences relating to an acid attack at a London club last month – Ferne also debuted her little bump.

Wearing a pink wrap dress that highlights her growing stomach, the mum-to-be looked glowing as she explained she’s only 12 weeks pregnant – after having to reveal the exciting news much earlier than planned.

Ferne admitted: ‘It had been such a stressful, surreal situation to be in but I’m actually feeling good, feeling positive because I’m pregnant.

‘I think that has given me strength and hope to get through this.’  

Before adding: ‘This is the reason why I haven’t spoken to anyone because when most women are pregnant they don’t tell anyone until they’re at that three month stage.’

Talking about the difficulties of pregnancy, the Celebs Go Dating star then went on to explain she’s been suffering with terrible morning sickness, saying: ‘I’ve had all of the symptoms, nausea, crazy headaches that led to sickness morning noon and night, I’m coming out of that stage now and I’m feeling good.’

Good to hear it, Ferne!

And fans were clearly loving how radiant the expecting star looked with her tiny tum, as one Twitter user wrote: ‘@thismorning @fernemccann looks radiant! Good luck with your baby x.’

Another added: ‘You look great Take care of yourself and the bambino.. Your gonna make a great mummy.’

While a third agreed: ‘How beautiful does @fernemccann look on #ThisMorning.’

Despite admitting ‘this isn’t how she imagined her first pregnancy to be’, the showbiz presenter insisted she was putting all her energy into the unborn tot and being the best single mum she can.

And we’re all behind you, Ferne!
