Pregnant Ferne McCann is reportedly still in contact with her ex-boyfriend and babudaddy Arthur Collins following his charge over an acid attack in London last month.

The contact with Arthur, who is currently awaiting trial, is alledgedly more 'practical reasons' as they have important 'things to discuss' rather than anything romantic.

A source told The Sun: "Ferne has obviously ended her relationship with Arthur but she has been in contact with him since his arrest.

"They have spoken on the phone recently. The relationship is over but obviously they feel there are things to discuss."

On Thursday night, Ferne made her first red-carpet appearance (where she showed off the cutest lil baby bump) at the Pride of the North East Awards in Newcastle alongside her best pal Vicky Pattison.

Both Vicky and Ferne didn't leave each other's side's all night and shared photos from the special night on Instagram.

Vicky even wrote the sweest tribute to Ferne on Instagram, writing: "I love her... And that is all there is to say. My Ferne McCann and I are finally reunited... And it feels so goooodddd!"

Just last week, Ferne made an extremely emotional return to This Morning where she discussed the circumstances surrounding her first pregnancy and how the 'amazing' support from the public has made her feel stronger.

During her interview, Ferne said that her pregnancy 'was a blessing': "Because I'm pregnant, I think that has given me strength and hope to get through this."

But when Phillip Schofield asked her about Arthur, Ferne visibly broke down and said: "This isn't how I imagined my first pregnancy to be.

"But it's not about what happened. It is about this baby. I'm going to be strong, I'm going to try and keep it together... I really don't want to cry. My main concern and priority is the baby."
