Ferne McCann didn't realise she was so 'strong'

Ferne MCCann didn't realise she was so "strong" until she had a baby and her former boyfriend was jailed.

The former "Only Way is Essex" star had a rocky 2017 when she fell pregnant, only to split from Arthur Collins after he carried out a horrific acid attack in a nightclub - for which he's been jailed for 20 years - and admitted her tough experiences have made her a much calmer person.

Ferne, who gave birth to daughter Sunday in November, said: "I hadn't realised how strong I could be.

"I have a much more positive outlook on life now. I used to get stressed about the smallest things but now I've seen how much I can cope with, the smaller stuff just doesn't worry me anymore. I'm a lot calmer."

And the 27-year-old star has realised how much exercise can help with her stress levels.

She said: "Exercise is a huge stress reliever for me. I worked with a personal trainer during my pregnancy and am starting a two-month plan of simple exercises to do at home. But my trainer really instilled into me that being healthy isn't just about going to the gym or having an exercise regime. I pay more attention to my mind, body and soul trying to reduce the stress in my life and focus on my goals.

"I love meditation and I'm into crystal healing too."

The "This Morning" presenter isn't ready to date again but she'll know when she meets someone and that they're the right person for her.

She told Closer magazine: "You can't have a checklist, I just go with whoever I fancy - it's the chemistry you can't beat. But, right now, I can't even think about dating. I just want to get in the swing of 2018 with my beautiful daughter. I'm definitely not thinking of another baby - Sunday is all I need."
