Former The Only Way Is Essex star Ferne McCann is engaged.

The reality TV personality, 31, announced the news on Instagram by sharing a photo of herself in a passionate embrace with her new fiance, property developer Lorri Haines.

The picture, taken in the French resort of Le Touquet-Paris-Plage, also showed off her new diamond engagement ring.

McCann captioned the post: “So happily ever afters do exist. I cannot wait to do forever with you baby.”

In his own post, Haines added: “She said yesssss.”

The couple have reportedly been in a relationship since January this year.

Soap star Gemma Atkinson and fellow Towie cast members Lauren Goodger and Mario Falcone were among those sending their congratulations to the couple.

Falcone wrote: “Congratulations Fernita! Very happy for you.”

McCann was previously in an on-off relationship with her Towie co-star Charlie Sims for six years.

She shares a four-year-old daughter with her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins, who was given a 20-year jail sentence in December 2017 for carrying out an acid attack in a packed nightclub.

Sixteen people suffered chemical burn injuries and three people were temporarily blinded in the attack.
