Inside Ferne McCann’s dating history as she prepares to ‘move to Dubai’ for new beau
Ferne McCann recently confirmed her romance with new beau Lorri Haines with a string of loved-up snaps posted to social media.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star, 31, jetted off to Dubai to join her estate agent boyfriend, with the couple sharing numerous clips and photos from their romantic trip.
Ferne looked smitten with her new man Lorri during the holiday, and it’s now been reported that the star plans to split her time between Dubai and Essex in order to focus on her new romance.
Lorri is involved in property business in Dubai, while Ferne has multiple businesses she manages here in the UK, where she lives with her four year old daughter, Sunday.
An insider recently told The Sun: “Lorri and Ferne have fallen head over heels and will do what it takes to make things work.”
They also added: “It’s a bit tricky for Ferne to travel all the time because of Sunday but she has already squeezed in one trip this year. Lorri is currently in the UK and they have both agreed to go back and forth as much as possible.”

In February 2021, Ferne confirmed her romance with boyfriend Jack Padgett, with the star sharing a loved-up snap of the pair.
The couple had kept their relationship under wraps for a while, but days before the announcement Ferne had revealed during an appearance on Loose Women that she had a new man.
The 31 year old explained that her romance with the model was going well, and told how they were actually living together at the time.
Despite Ferne declaring Jack was ‘the one’, the pair broke up in June 2021 after deciding they wanted different things in life.
In December 2018, Ferne met Albie Gibbs during a holiday to Dubai and the pair began dating in 2019.
Albie and Ferne kept their relationship out of the limelight, with Albie reportedly uninterested in living the celebrity lifestyle.
Ferne opened up about their romance on a few occasions, and once revealed how she hoped to settle down with him.
However, Albie being based in New York and Ferne being based in the UK proved too difficult for the pair’s romance to last.
The couple parted ways during the coronavirus pandemic after they couldn’t see each other.
Heartbroken Ferne opened up about the split, saying at the time: “How can I see a future with someone when I can’t physically be with them for the foreseeable future? I was naive to think the long distance thing would be OK.”
She added: “We have broken up and it is proper s**t.
“It sucks to say that I think he was the right guy, and I want to stress this, the right guy at the wrong time.”
Ferne first dated Arthur Collins in 2016, but their pair briefly split before rekindling their romance.
They went public with their romance and enjoyed a series of lavish holidays together, sharing numerous photographs to social media.
Arthur was arrested for carrying out a traumatising acid attack in a London nightclub in April 2017 and was sentenced to 20 years behind bars after 14 people were left injured.
Ferne had just found out she was pregnant with Arthur’s baby, and ended her relationship with him.
The TV star welcome daughter Sunday in November 2017, with her journey as a single mum being documented on her hit ITVBe reality show, Ferne McCann: First Time Mum.
When Ferne took part in I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! in 2016, she grew close to many of her camp mates, including singer George Shelley.
The TOWIE star was spotted on several occasions looking cosy with the Union J singer, with many reports claiming the pair had shared a kiss.
George and Ferne never confirmed whether they were in a relationship, but it’s believed they remained close pals regardless.

When Ferne first landed on our screens, she was in a long-term relationship with fellow TOWIE star Charlie Sims.
They dated for over five years, with nearly their entire relationship playing out on-screen.
Charlie and Ferne endured their fair share of drama, with many cheating allegations and arguments over the years.
Eventually, they called it quits in 2015 and split for good, after Charlie decided to walk away from the relationship and leave TOWIE at the same time.
The former couple appear to remain on good terms however, with Ferne writing in her autobiography that she will always “love and adore” her ex-boyfriend.
