Ferne McCann says she is the "worst friend and family member ever" when she's shooting 'The Only Is Essex' because of the show's gruelling schedule
Ferne McCann has admitted she's the "worst friend and family member" when she's filming 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The loud-mouthed reality star says the six-week shoot for each series is so intense she just doesn't have the time to maintain her relationships with her loved ones and sometimes she's so busy she doesn't even reply to text messages received.
Speaking at the launch of Tru Diamonds at the luxurious Westbury Hotel in London on Thursday night (08.05.14), she told BANG Showbiz: "For the six to eight weeks that I'm filming I'm the worst friend and family member ever. I don't text people back, I never go out, so when filming finishes I like to catch up with friends and family and I like going on holiday."
Ferne was partying at the exclusive bash with 'Made In Chelsea' star Rosie Fortescue and the fashion blogger admits she and her castmates have a similar problem although the shooting schedule for 'MIC' isn't as intense.
Rosie revealed: "'TOWIE' is filmed constantly and very intensely for six weeks whereas 'Made In Chelsea' is filmed over a prolonged period of time so in a way we do get to see our friends but things change, schedules change. It's just about managing your time, if you've just done a 12-hour day realistically the last thing that your'e going to do is go and meet friends at one in the morning."
The pair were joined at the event to launch the new jewellery range - available at Trudiamonds.co.uk - by Rosie's 'MIC' co-star Cheska Hull and host other celebrities.
Among the other guests were 'EastEnders' stars Patsy Palmer and Samantha Womack, actress Tamsin Outhwaite, Caprice and former 'TOWIE' regular Lydia Bright.
