     Ferne McCann has made her pregnant red carpet debut at Wednesday night’s Pride Of The North East in wake of her ex-beau Arthur Collins’ charge over acid attack.

    The 27-year-old former TOWIE star was glowing as she displayed just a hint of bump from beneath her silky gown, looking happy and healthy in the wake of the traumatic origins of her pregnancy.

    Following her emotional appearance on This Morning last week, the reality starlet appears to be adjusting to life as an expectant mother in the spotlight following her former-boyfriend’s legal woes.

    Last week, Ferne broke down in tears as she revealed she wants to be the best mother she can be to her unborn child, calling the shock pregnancy a ‘blessing’.

    The reality star broke her silence after the baby’s father – her ex Arthur – was arrested and charged with intent to do grievous bodily harm in connection with the acid attack in London nightspot Mangle last month.

    Ferne fought back sobs as they addressed her ex-boyfriend’s charges – which she was not allowed to comment on – and at one point Ferne had to stop the interview as she was unable to speak. 

    She explained: ‘It had been such a stressful, surreal situation to be in but I’m actually feeling good, feeling positive because I’m pregnant.I think that has given me strength and hope to get through this.’

    Explaining that she’s been overwhelmed with the support she has received, Ferne – who is 12 weeks pregnant – revealed: ‘I’ve got such a strong support group, everyone has been so amazing.

    ‘This is the reason why I haven’t spoken to anyone because when most women are pregnant they don’t tell anyone until they’re at that three month stage.’ 

    Ferne – who often presents the showbiz news segment on This Morning – added: ‘This isn’t how I imagined my first pregnancy to be, but this isn’t about me, or the situation, my main priority is the baby.’

    Breaking down in tears, she revealed she was overwhelmed by the public’s reaction to her shock pregnancy, confessing she had been sent several messages from fans and fellow single mothers.
