Celebrating the release of her new fitness DVD Fit As Ferne, the reality TV star told how she’s entering a new chapter in her life – and says she’s happier than ever before.

She told us: “For so long I’ve been saying I don’t have the time.

“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.”

Ferne’s ex Collins went on the run after injuring 14 people when he hurled acid across a packed nightclub dance floor in April 2017.
Devastated by his actions, Ferne split from Collins – but revealed she was carrying his baby.

In November that year, their daughter Sunday was born, helping Ferne to let go of her anger and change her life for the better.

Two months later, The Sun also exclusively revealed she was in a secret relationship with an older man who was her “confidante” in the months after Arthur’s conviction.

She then had a brief fling with Love Island’s Charlie Brake after meeting on a boozy night out.

They enjoyed a passionate snog weeks later at an awards night and are thought to have been on a few low-key dates.

But the young mum insists she is still very much single as she focuses on Sunday and her growing workload.

Fans have since followed her journey through motherhood watching Ferne’s TV series First Time Mum, which is soon returning for a second series.

The ITVBe show focuses on Ferne juggling between being a working woman and a single mum.

The mum-of-one has admitted that as well as struggling to do it alone, she has also experienced loneliness at times.

“I’m into a whole new chapter now,” she said.

“The first series was me learning on the job, being a mum and winging it.

“I’m still doing that but this is more about the highs, lows and the ‘lols’.

“What I love about the show is it’s from a single parent’s perspective.

“There is nothing out there reality-wise in the UK that does that and it’s so important.

“I’ve had so many people reach out and say they relate and feel inspired by me.

“There’s so many single people in this country and I feel if I can honestly show my life then it might help others.

“Being a single parent can be really lonely sometimes.

“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’.

“First Time Mum showcases that, but it’s really fun as well.”

Ferne says her 14-month-old daughter is her inspiration and helped her to go from a size 12 to eight so that she remains fit and healthy for the little girl growing up.

Her weight loss inspired the launch of her new fitness DVD, which aims to give working mums quick and effective workouts.

Ferne said: “Everyone’s very busy, whether you’re a mum or working in the city.

“People live in the fast lane and life never sleeps because of phones and social media, so it can be hard to find the time to train.

“This is why my exercises are so fantastic. I’m realistic – I’m busy and have a baby – I don’t have time to be training all day, every single day.

“These exercises mean you can do it two or three times a week and anything else is a bonus.

“The short, snappy programmes have the same effect as an hour working out with a personal trainer.”

And the proof really is in the pudding as Ferne showcases her rock hard abs in a crop top for the press launch of her DVD.

She admits it was important for her to get herself on top form mentally and physically before meeting a potential new man.

But now she’s looking and feeling incredible, the mum-of-one hopes she will be able to find someone special as she thinks about expanding her family.

Ferne added: “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.

“She’s got to an age now where she’s becoming a bit more needy.
