FERNE McCann agreed to a date with Towie’s Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell despite flirting with Charlie Brake on tonight’s First T
FERNE McCann agreed to a date with Towie’s Liam ‘Gatsby’ Blackwell despite flirting with Charlie Brake on tonight’s First Time Mum.
The reality star had men fawning at her feet, with Love Island star Charlie, 24, asking her out at a showbiz event.
The pair had already pictured out together, but before Ferne, 28, had time to consider his offer, she was also asked out by Gatsby.
The Towie star, 30, had accompanied Ferne on some house viewings as she considered moving to a bigger place with daughter Sunday.
But speaking to the camera, Ferne said: “If I didn’t know any better I think Gatsby’s flirting with me. I thought we’d put that to bed years ago.”
Towie fans will remember the pair enjoyed a romantic date – complete with helicopter ride – and it seems Gatsby still holds a candle for the mum-of-one.
He told her: “Listen you’re a great single mum and anybody would be lucky to have you.”
Ferne blushed and replied: “That’s really sweet, do you not think that having a baby is baggage for someone?”
But Liam told her: “If someone sees Sunday as baggage then they’re not the one for you.”
Ferne told him she thought he was her “perfect man” and Liam seized his moment, saying: “Well listen how long ago was that iconic first date?”

Ferne admitted they’d had “the most incredible date”, before he continued: “So listen maybe we’re both in that stage in our life now where we can maybe have that second date?
“You’re single now, you said it’s been however long, listen I think another date is due. It’s been three years in the making.”
As Ferne agreed, she told the camera: “This has taken me completely by surprise but then I think, why not?
“We’ve got great banter, I absolutely love Gatsby’s style, what have I got to lose?”
She then confided in her fellow former Towie pal Mario Falcone, who warned her Charlie was a “playboy”, leaving Ferne in a pickle.
A teaser clip for next week’s show revealed the star does go on a date, but who will the lucky man be?
