Ferne McCann’s friends voice their concern: “she’s not speaking to anyone”
Ferne McCann has reportedly been isolating herself away from friends and family, who admit they are “really worried” about her.
Yesterday, it was confirmed that the former TOWIE star is pregnant with Arthur Collins’ baby. Her spokesperson confirmed to OK! Online: “Ferne is grateful for the sympathetic way news of her pregnancy has been covered and people’s support and obviously her first concern is for her child’s health.
“Accordingly she does not wish to discuss the pregnancy further given the early stage it is at and the immense strain that Ferne is currently under.”
The revelation of her pregnancy came just after her ex-boyfriend’s recent arrest in connection to the London acid attack. The news has concerned Ferne’s close friends, who revealed the star is detaching herself from everyone around her.
A source told The Sun Online: “We had no idea [she was pregnant]. It’s really worrying – we don’t know what she’s going to do now, it’s really sad, we’re all here for her but she’s not speaking to anyone. We don’t even know where she is.
“She wouldn’t have wanted it to be like this. It’s really sad… she isn’t getting to celebrate being pregnant like other first time mum’s – she doesn’t deserve this, she is a lovely girl and she deserves only happiness. Everyone is really concerned for her.”
Arthur was arrested and charged with 14 counts of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and one count of throwing corrosive fluid on a person with intent to do grievous bodily harm in connection with the acid attack in London nightspot Mangle on 17 April.
An insider explained: “We feel really sad for Ferne as she has not been able to celebrate what should be the happiest time of her life because her pregnancy has been tainted by such a horrific tragedy.
“The abuse on Twitter is terrible – hopefully people won’t hold it against her and it won’t affect her career because it’s not fair on her.”
