According to reports, Ferne McCann is planning to leave the cast of The Only Way Is Essex, following her recent I’m A Celebrity success.
Ferne became a regular to the reality TV show back in 2013 but Ferne is now set to leave in the new year following her success in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
In the jungle, she managed to face many fears including eating a live spider and being in a coffin full of snakes. The public became attached to her bubbly personality and she finished third in the show, just behind George Shelley and Vicky Pattinson.
“Ferne came across amazingly well in the jungle, showed her true self and has won a new army of fans,” a source said today. “It would be like taking 10 steps back and return to TOWIE now where she will be subject to vicious jealous cast members.”
The supposed insider added to the Daily Star newspaper: “It isn’t appealing, so she’s is planning to hand in her notice and do something different next year.”
Chatting in the jungle to the other celebs about her career plans, Ferne said during the show that she hoped to become an actress.
The ambitious 25-year-old said: “I’d love to do a radio show and I’d love to be in British dramas, I love Downton Abbey. It’s just something that I love to watch and I’d love to do something like that.”
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! returns next year with a whole new bunch of celebrities!
