First Time Mum star Ferne McCann has shocked fans by reuniting with her former squeeze George Shelley, more than seven years after they appeared on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! together where they sparked romance rumours.

Taking to Instagram story to share a selfie of herself and George, Ferne revealed that the pair had reunited for a game of basketball.

They haven't aged a day, have they.

Way back in 2015, Ferne and George teased viewers during the recent series of I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!, flirting in front of the cameras in a 'will they, won't they' relationship.

Despite sharing a cheeky kiss under the mistletoe after they left the jungle, the former TOWIE star told Fabulous magazine that she didn't fancy him and they were just good pals, “He’s a good-looking boy and I appreciate he’s gorgeous. I just want to spend more time with him, so watch this space.

“I’m pretty certain it’s just going to be a fantastic friendship.”

Their recent reunion was definitely still on the friendly side, as Ferne recently celebrated her whirlwind engagement to boyfriend (fiancé should we say) to her boyfriend Lorri Haines.

Lorri, who first began dating Ferne in January, took their whirlwind romance to the next level in July when he popped the question during a romantic trip to France.

And Ferne – who is mum to four-year-old daughter Sunday - is now reportedly hoping to add another child to their blended family, as Lorri has a little boy from a previous relationship.

What happened between Ferne McCann and Jack Padgett?

Before Ferne found love with Lorri, she was in a relationship with model Jack and their split was a focal point of the sixth season of her ITVBe show First Time Mum that aired in 2021.

At the time, Ferne revealed that she was blindsided by the split and it all happened "abruptly".

She admitted, "I sometimes feel moving into any relationship it's a bit of a hindrance. Every guy that I'm with is either hiding behind a menu or saying 'sorry you're not on brand for me!' That's what Jack said. It was really upsetting."

What happened between Ferne McCann and Charlie Sims?

Ferne's on/off relationship with Chloe Sims' brother Charlie dominated TOWIE storylines for years as they struggled with cheating rumours and family feuds. They split for good before Ferne entered the jungle in 2015.

Charlie was her first serious boyfriend, with Ferne writing in her 2016 autobiography, "I will always love and adore Charlie.

"He was my best friend and I hope he always will be."

We're not sure they're still in touch.

Who is Arthur Collins?

Ferne welcomed her first child, daughter Sunday, with her ex boyfriend Arthur Collins in 2017.

Ferne was just about to publicly announce her pregnancy with Arthur when a police appeal revealed that they needed to question him over an acid attack in an East London nightclub during the Easter bank holiday weekend 2017.

Arthur was sentenced to 20 years behind bars after carrying out the attack which left sixteen people with chemical burn injuries and temporarily blinded three others.
