Ferne McCann’s Ex Engaged To Glamour Model - And Planning ‘Prison Wedding’

Ferne McCann’s Ex Engaged To Glamour Model - And Planning ‘Prison Wedding’

The TOWIE star's ex is serving a 20 year prison sentence.

While TOWIE star Ferne McCann, 31, celebrates her engagement to boyfriend Lorri Haines, reports suggest her ex Arthur Collins, 29, is also planning to tie the knot soon - despite being behind bars.

Before she started her seven-month whirlwind romance with property developer Lorri, Ferne was linked to Arthur.

The couple split in 2017 after Arthur was arrested for carrying out an acid attack in a London nightclub Mangle E8 and sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Ferne and Arthur started dating in 2016.

The shocking attack, which left 16 people with chemical burn injuries, came just as Ferne was about to announce that she was pregnant with Arthur's baby.

In November 2017, the single mum welcomed her daughter Sunday, and even went on to document her journey through parenthood on ITVBe's Ferne McCann: First Time Mum.

Despite being locked up for the 2017 attack, Arthur has reportedly found love in Annie Bull, 33 - a glamour model and mum-of-one.

Confirming her engagement to Arthur on her Instagram account, which has since been made private, Annie posted a photo of her tattoo of Arthur's name, accompanied by the caption: "I said yes", MailOnline reports.

Explaining how the couple came to be, a source close to Annie told the tabloid that they had met through "mutual friends."

The source added: "They plan on getting married while he's still behind bars later this year after dating for the past six months.

"Annie is aware of Arthur's past but is prepared to commit herself to him, even getting a tattoo of his name to prove her love.

"They have a lot in common; Annie also has a young daughter, and believes the pair connect on a spiritual level."

They continued: "They fell in love after writing to each other and talking through prison visits and Annie believes Arthur is truly sorry for everything that happened. 

"Annie has done a lot for Arthur's rehabilitation, she feels they're soul mates, and together they are looking forward to the future and one day having a family life of their own."

Meanwhile, Ferne shared the news of her engagement earlier this month after her boyfriend Lorri got down on one knee during a romantic trip to France.

Sharing some shots from the exciting day, the reality star wrote: "So happily ever afters do exist. I cannot wait to do forever with you baby."

She later revealed that the crew of her TV show First Time Mum were present for the engagement and caught the whole thing on camera.

"Tbh I am so super super grateful my film crew were there to capture this special moment forever", she wrote.

"I cannot wait to relive this moment where I laughed and cried so hard all at the same time. Thank you, Lorri, for making me so blissfully happy."
