Ferne McCann sparked romance rumours after she was spotted walking hand-in-hand with Love Island hunk Charlie Brake – hours after she spoke to press at the Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year Awards.
In pictures obtained by The Sun, The Only Way Is Essex beauty, 28, was snapped looking cosy with the 23 year old reality TV star, who recently split from his co-star Ellie Brown.
And while there’s been no confirmation that the pair are an item, just hours before their hand-holding antics, Ferne revealed she wanted someone to kiss – and soon.
Speaking to OK! online and others hours before she was seen getting close with Charlie, the mum-of-one said she’s prioritising her daughter Sunday as well as working opportunities over finding love, but said: “If I meet someone organically, I’d just love that.”
When asked if she’d love to have someone to kiss under the mistletoe, she added: “I’d love to have someone to kiss under the mistletoe – forget the mistletoe, I want someone to kiss right now!”
Later in the evening, the blonde bombshell was pictured with the millionaire heir hunk leaving an event together.
The mum of one grabbed onto Charlie’s hand as they walked the street, with Ferne beaming as they chatted happily.
The pair then got into a car together outside Sketch bar in Mayfair, London.
As they spotted the paparazzi, they attempted to hide their faces, with Ferne placing her head on her lap and Charlie hiding behind his iPhone.
OK! online have contacted Charlie and Ferne’s representatives for comment.
The millionaire heir was previously reported to be dating Kimberley Owen, after being pictured on a string of dates with her just days after his split from 20 year old Geordie beauty Ellie.
Meanwhile, while Ferne is said to have been on a few dates since her ex Arthur Collins, this is the first time she has been spotted out publicly.
