“She's going to see him in prison – I can't even bring myself to say it out loud… It wasn't an easy decision to make but it was a considered decision."

“I wanted it to come from me first and then yes, I got seen taking Sunday into the prison. He asserted his parental rights, so I didn’t really have a choice." 

She added: "She's always going to be curious and want to know who her father is. So until she is old enough to make her own decisions that's how it's going to be."

Meanwhile, Ferne’s new show just so happened to return on the same day her former bestie Sam Faiers, announced her own show, The Mummy Diaries will be available to stream on Netflix.
