Ferne McCann covers the newest issue of Fabulous magazine.
The 25-year-old former TOWIE and I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here star opened up about her friendship/romance with George Shelley, body image and more. Check it:
On her role in TOWIE: “I think I’ve done a complete 180 on the public perception of me. I was the Marmite character on TOWIE – you either loved me or hated me – and it was always really frustrating for my family and friends and those who loved me to see all the abuse I got from people who had the wrong impression. So it’s been nice for everyone to see the unedited me. Just me being me.”
On body image: “I want to stand up for realistic women and be a voice for them, so if seeing those comparison pictures made other girls feel better about themselves, then I’m all for it. I want to let people know that this superficial ideal woman does not exist and is not achievable. It’s not normal for people to look airbrushed and Facetuned [a photo-editing app].”
On George: “With that show, everyone wants there to be a romance, but I never looked at George in that way. I love him as a friend. We gravitated towards each other and we loved hanging out, and you never know, but I’m pretty sure it’s just friends…We got very close at the wrap party, but no snogging. I can’t keep away from him, but it’s exactly the same with Vicky [Pattison]. You all get so close in there and I’ve been getting separation anxiety since we’ve been back.”
