Ferne McCann has revealed she's started dating one of her long-term friends after taking inspiration from her pal Danielle Armstrong.
The reality star, 29, told The Sun she's known the mystery man 'for ages' and they're in the early days of a romance, following the news that her best friend Danielle announced was expecting a baby with her childhood sweetheart.
Ferne's revelations came after she broke down in tears about the struggles of being a single parent to daughter Sunday, two, on her reality series First Time Mum, as she told her pals that she was ready to find love again.

Speaking at the launch of an edible insects range at the Chiquito's restaurant on Thursday, Ferne said: 'But there is one guy that I've known for ages and I really like him.
'I always feel when I meet someone and speak about it publicly, I'll do an interview a few months down the line saying: 'Yeah it didn't work out.'
'So I don't want to put too much pressure on it, but there is definitely someone who has caught my eye.'
