Ferne McCann has reportedly spoken to her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins since he was arrested and charged over an acid attack
Ferne McCann is reportedly "back in contact" with her ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins.
The 26-year-old TV star is believed to have had a phone call with her ex-beau, with whom she's expecting a baby, on the phone after he was arrested and charged over an acid attack, which took place outside a nightclub in London, late last month.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Ferne has obviously ended her relationship with Arthur but she has been in contact with him since his arrest.
"They have spoken on the phone recently. The relationship is over but obviously they feel there are things to discuss."
Although she agreed to speak on the phone with Arthur - who is currently being held behind bars on remand awaiting trial - there's nothing to suggest the former 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' contestant wants to rekindle her romance with her 24-year-old beau nor is it thought the pair discussed the upcoming court case.
Arthur was arrested in April - a week after the horrific incident injured 20 people - and charged with 14 counts of grievous bodily harm with intent and one of throwing corrosive fluid on a person in relation to the acid attack at nightspot Mangle.
Shortly after he was caught by police, Ferne found out she was pregnant with his baby and has admitted she's been really struggling to come to terms with things.
She said recently: "It has been such a stressful, surreal situation to be in. But I'm actually feeling good and positive. Because I'm pregnant, I think that has given me strength and hope to get through this."
Ferne has confirmed she intends to raise her child as a single mother and admits the moment she got to hear her baby's heart beat was just incredible.
She said: "That first scan is the most amazing ... you bond with your baby for the very first time. And seeing it with my own eyes, I was like, 'OK, this is really happening.' "
Of hearing her baby's heartbeat, she added: "It felt like a massive relief because leading up to that point you're like, 'I hope this is going to be OK, I hope everything's OK with the baby.' It's just a magical moment. It's hard to explain it, you're like, 'That's my baby. It's just mental being pregnant, I still can't quite believe it."
