The I’m A Celebrity 2015 star took to Instagram Stories with former TOWIE co-star Danielle Armstrong to share her pregnancy diet with her fans, after she gave birth to daughter Sunday three weeks ago.
Danielle – a promoter for Herbalife shakes – claimed Ferne McCann “had clear skin and more energy” throughout her pregnancy due to the dietary supplements.
While breastfeeding daughter Sunday beneath a blanket, Ferne 27, told her fans: “Everyone has been asking me what I was doing while I was pregnant, how I looked so good. As many of you know, I was training, but I was also having the Herbalife shakes.
“As soon as I woke up in the morning, I would always have my tea and biscuits because I always felt like really hungry.
“And I had to kill that hunger straight away otherwise I’d be nauseous or sick. So instead of having biscuits, I turned to the Herbalife shakes,” Sam Faiers’ pal added.
Danielle then chips in: “Thanks to me!”

The blonde bombshell then adds: “And, I’m just saying, how much better was your skin and everything else. And you had a little bit more energy as well didn’t you?”
Ferne continues: “So much more energy, especially carrying around that extra weight when you’ve got your bump in front of you. But not only that, I was also having a late healthy brunch, a lunch and then my dinner.
“Because you always need more calories when you’re pregnant and when you’re breastfeeding. So yeah, that’s my little secret!”
OK! Online has contacted a representative for Ferne to provide a comment.
On the Herbalife website it is recommended pregnant women speak to their health care provider about their dietary needs before taking a nutrition and dietary supplement.
Since welcoming her baby girl at the start of the month, Ferne has been praised by fans for her glowing appearance.
