Ex-TOWIE star Ferne McCann has said that she'll 'never stop working' after getting her first job when she was a teenager.
The single mum works to support her daughter Sunday and has amassed a huge fortune during her years in the spotlight.
Ferne is doing amazing on her own as she has earned a place on The Sun’s annual Fabulous Magazine Reality Rich List, being ranked 13th with her estimated fortune of £5.5million.
Ferne's road to success began when she first appeared on The Only Way Is Essex before she began fronting her own show, Ferne McCann: First Time Mum, and launching her own fitness app, Embodyment.
Ferne said: "I’ve been that girl on a Friday night going into London, dressed up to the nines, trying to meet a banker, and I’ve dated footballers. But I will never stop working or rely on a man to fund me and give me what I want.
“It’s important I teach my daughter that if you want something, you can absolutely achieve it if you work hard enough. I’ve had guys who could have given me an easy, comfortable life but it doesn’t excite me.
"I want to work for myself and provide for my daughter. I take great comfort and can sleep happily at night knowing I can look after us both. It’s rewarding knowing that I’ve made that happen for us.
“I love it when single mums tell me I’ve inspired them. It’s so touching and humbling, the best thing about what I do."
Ferne got her first job when she was just 14, working in a hairdressers washing hair.
Her parents encouraged her to work to build her character which helped her speak to people and she ended up staying in that job for four years.
Ferne became pregnant with her daughter Sunday back in 2017 and found herself as a single mum when her then-boyfriend Arthur Collins went on the run following an acid attack in a London nightclub that left 22 people injured.
He was later convicted of GBH with intent, as well as ABH, and jailed for 20 years.
Ferne split up with Arthur as soon as she found out about the attack.
Ferne McCann: First Time Mum began as a one-off back in 2017 but ITV has gone on to film seven series and Ferne describes the show as being close to her heart.
When asked if she would like more children Ferne said: "Definitely. Sunday is my best mate and settling into school. I would love her to have siblings, she is my blessing."
