However the duo have now called it quits on their relationship, with a source saying that they were ‘on different paths’.
Called it quits: Ferne McCann has split from her beau Jack Padgett, six months after making their relationship official
A source told The Sun: ‘Ferne said it was a case of “right guy wrong time”. It was clear to all of us that they were both on different paths.’
The source continued that because Ferne’s work is very busy, her and Jack’s diaries ‘clashed’, with him focusing on event hosting.
They continued: ‘She’s sad but she’s realistic about the situation, that nightlife lifestyle just isn’t her and hasn’t been for years.
‘She has no regrets. They both got on great and had a lot of fun, but you need more than that in a relationship.’

MailOnline has contacted Ferne’s representative for further comment.
Ferne last shared a loved-up snap with Jack to Instagram just last week and the pair had moved in together during lockdown.
They had been spotted passionately kissing during a trip to South Africa and later made their romance official in January, telling MailOnline at the time that she was ‘really excited’ about the relationship.
While in March, the former TOWIE star revealed she cannot stop saying ‘I love you’ to the hunk.
Speaking to The Sun, she admitted that Jack has ‘changed her life’, saying: ‘I feel like he really is The One. I’m in that love bubble and I don’t think that’s going to change. He’s honestly changed my life and that’s it now. I’m so grateful.’
Ferne, who is mother to daughter Sunday, three, went public with the model in late December after first meeting five years ago in Marbella.
And she admitted moving in together so quickly has ‘fast-forwarded’ her romance with her ‘calm and kind’ beau.
Speaking in a recent interview with MailOnline, the mother-of-one explained while she initially found the prospect of letting a new man into her life ‘daunting’, she is confident she has found the ‘right person’ in longtime friend Jack.
She said: ‘It’s a really healthy honest relationship. It’s an adult relationship and I’m very happy. He’s nice, calm and balanced, and fun. I love him. I did actually say ‘I love you’ first.’

She added: ‘I knew he loved me but he wasn’t going to be the one to say it.’
While she shares Sunday with her incarcerated ex-boyfriend Arthur Collins, who is serving over 20 years in jail for an acid attack, babies are not on the cards yet.
She went on: ‘It’s too soon for all that, and I don’t want to scare him off – but I have discussed baby names with him. But we’re not planning for a baby yet. I just want to enjoy life with him first for a few more years to have fun with him.’
Ferne told MailOnline in October last year she had been using celebrity-dating app Raya to meet her next partner – after turning 30 months earlier and asking herself: ‘Am I going to be single forever?’
She said at the time: ‘Turning 30… I had that whole moment where I’m still single… as a female, when you’re single at 30 you really start to question yourself and you think “am I ever going to find anyone?” This isn’t what I planned.’
