Ferne McCann feels it’s “time to move on” from TOWIE

“I would never completely close the door,” McCann says but admits she wants to explore other things


Ferne McCann reckons it’s time to “move on” from The Only Way Is Essex.


“I would never completely close the door on TOWIE, but I do feel like it’s time to move on,” McCann told RadioTimes.com on the red carpet at last night’s National Television Awards. “It’s not confirmation of me leaving, it’s just I want to explore other things.”

The reality star has been with the ITVBe show since 2013, joining in its ninth series.

But McCann has earned a whole host of new fans after tackling I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! placing third behind George Shelley and winner Vicky Pattison at the end of last year. She certainly earned her keep, enduring trials that included being buried alive with snakes and eating a live water spider.

There’s plenty of new projects on the way, she says including a presenting gig on This Morning.


“It’s so cool. I’m like This Morning’s little sister. Loads coming up: film, radio, books – stay tuned, watch this space.”
