Speaking to The Sun, Ferne continued: ‘I’ve always thought that this comes first, or that comes first, and couldn’t imagine how I would have fitted dating into my busy life.

‘My priority is my daughter Sunday and I have to work to provide for her, but she’s a year old now and life is moving on.

‘My friends are getting married and I’m a bridesmaid at my sister’s wedding.

‘I’m at that stage of my life, so I am more open to dating now. That’s my New Year’s resolution.’

Despite being linked to former Love Island star Charlie Brake, Ferne has insisted she’s still single but doesn’t want to be for much longer.

‘Being a single parent can be really lonely sometimes,’ she admitted.

‘Even though it’s the best thing because you get all the love and it’s so rewarding, there’s definitely nights when it’s like “wow, I don’t have anyone else.”’

Meanwhile, the Essex star recently released her first exercise DVD after undergoing a major body transformation.

Revealing how this has changed her attitude towards dating, she continued: ‘I like to keep active because I want to be 100 per cent at my optimum state of health because I have a baby, I’m thinking about someone else now.

‘And of course I’d love to have more children, but I do just love it being me and her right now.

‘I’d love to have another set of hands because you can’t do it all.

‘But now I’m open to dating because I’m feeling so fit and healthy and that’s where it starts – you’ve got to learn to love yourself first.’

We reckon 2019 is definitely Ferne’s year to find love!
