Ferne McCann has revealed she auditioned for a part in the Harry Potter films.


The former TOWIE star, who entertained audiences in I'm a Celeb last year, had her eye on being a certain someone's girlfriend.

“I also auditioned for a part in Harry Potter to play Ron Weasley’s girlfriend," McCann admitted while filming ITV2's Safeword.

Laughing she obviously didn't get the part, because otherwise she "would have been in the films", McCann seems to have just about got over it.

Jessie Cave got the part of Lavender Brown in the end, first popping up in 2009's Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It'd be a brave woman who got between her and her 'Won-Won'...
