Ferne McCann gives birth to a baby girl

The Animal Hero Awards - London

TV personality Ferne McCann has given birth to her first child.

The former TOWIE and I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! star, 27, welcomed a daughter this week.

Posting a photo on Instagram, she wrote: "Welcome to the world my darling. Didn't expect to see you a week early. I'm so in love & bursting with pride. It's a girl."

McCann split with her daughter's father Arthur Collins in April after he was arrested over an acid attack in an east London nightclub.

Collins is currently on trial over the attack alongside co-defendant Andre Phoenix and are accused of five counts of grievous bodily harm with intent, and 11 counts of actual bodily harm.

At the time of Collins' arrest, McCann said: "Ferne is in no way seeking sympathy for her situation and is determined to do all she can to have a happy and healthy child and face the challenges of being a single parent with all her energy. Her thoughts are with the victims of the horrific attack on Easter Monday."
