Ferne Alice McCann (born 6 August 1990) is an English model, television personality and presenter. She is a cast member of the ITVBe reality show The Only Way Is Essex, having been on the show since the ninth series in 2013 until 2016. In 2015, she participated in the fifteenth series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and finished in third place.[3] In early 2016, she became a regular showbiz reporter on This Morning.[4]

Early life[edit]

She was born in Brentwood, Essex to Gilly and Simon McCann on 6 August 1990. Gilly has also featured in a few episodes of The Only Way Is Essex.


Before her television career, McCann was the winner of Miss Essex 2012 and in the Top 15 in Miss England in 2012.[2]

The Only Way Is Essex[edit]

In 2013, McCann became a regular cast member on the ITV2 (now ITVBe) reality show The Only Way Is Essex making her debut in the ninth series in June 2013. She quit the show in 2016 and made her last appearance in the seventeenth series.

I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here![edit]

On 15 November 2015, it was confirmed that McCann would be participating in the fifteenth series of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!.[5] She arrived as a late arrival alongside Vicky Pattison and Spencer Matthews. She finished in third place on 6 December.[6]

Her stint proved controversial when McCann had to eat a live spider which generated nearly 1,500 complaints to Ofcom. These were later cleared in January 2016.

Other work[edit]

In January 2016, McCann became a showbiz reporter on ITV daytime programme, This Morning. McCann took a break because of the highly publicised relationship with Arthur Collins in April 2017 before returning in January 2018. In March 2016 it was announced that McCann would star as Myrtle Wilson in the Union Theatre‘s production of The Great Gatsby.[7]

From May 2016, McCann began making regular appearances on the Channel 5 chat-show Up Late with Rylan hosted by Rylan Clark-Neal.[8]

In February 2017, she began appearing in Celebs Go Dating on E4 alongside her TOWIE co-star Joey Essex and I’m a Celebrity campmate Jorgie Porter.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

McCann was in a relationship with The Only Way Is Essex co-star Charlie Sims for six years. She was linked with George Shelley on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and praised him a few months later when he came out as bisexual in February 2016 claiming ‘it was his way of taking control’.

Relationship with Arthur Collins[edit]

McCann was dating Arthur Collins when in April 2017 he was arrested and charged in connection with a nightclub acid attack in London.[9] Two days later, McCann announced her pregnancy and also stated her plans to raise the baby as a single parent.[10] On 2 November 2017, she gave birth to a girl,[11] Sunday.[12] On 13 November 2017, Collins was found guilty of five counts of grievous bodily harm and nine of actual bodily harm at Wood Green Crown Court.[13] On 19 December 2017, Collins was jailed for twenty years, with another five years on licence.[14] He later admitted to smuggling a mobile phone into prison so that he could speak to her.[15] In January 2018, McCann sparked fury after liking a photo on Instagram which called for Collins’ release.[16] The same month, Collins had an extra 8 months added onto his initial sentence because of the phone smuggling and McCann was forced to deny claims that she had visited him in prison. It was later reported that McCann would visit Collins in prison to film a tv show but after receiving numerous hateful comments about this, McCann denied these rumours.
