Speaking to the Mirror on the red carpet, the I’m A Celeb Alum admitted she’s loved every bit of the transformation her body has gone through during her pregnancy, confessing that the process has helped her with her body positivity.

She said: ‘I feel like this is the first time I’ve properly loved my body. I just love the bumps so much that I love it. I look at myself in the mirror and I’m like yeahhh!

‘My boobs have literally come from nowhere, I swear to god, but now I’ve got used to them. It’s all part and parcel of the pregnancy. It will come in handy when the baby comes and I want to breastfeed. Let’s hope they stay!’

The reality star is expecting her first child with ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins, who currently faces trial for an alleged nightclub acid attack.

It was reported earlier last month that the former TOWIE star had gone to visit the 25-year-old scaffolder and businessman at HMP Thameside in south London in recent weeks.

Ferne split from Arthur earlier this year, amid allegations that he carried out an acid attack at an east London club, that left 22 people injured.

A source stressed that the couple were ‘certainly not’ rekindling their romance, claiming that Ferne was visiting Arthur to discuss matters surrounding their unborn child.

The insider told The Sun: ‘They are most certainly not back together and she has no intentions of doing so. But she saw him to discuss certain matters, given she is carrying his unborn child. She clearly didn’t want to be seen as she went in and kept a very low profile.’

Arthur pleaded not guilty to six counts of causing grevious bodily harm and 11 of actual bodily harm in June, when he appeared at Wood Green Crown Court today via video link from HMP Thameside.
