Ferne McCann splits from city trader boyfriend Albie Gibbs during lockdown
Ferne McCann has revealed she has split from her boyfriend Albie Gibbs.
The 29 year old began dating Albie, 25, last year but confirmed they had broken up during lockdown.
Former The Only Way Is Essex star Ferne broke the news on her hit show First Time Mum, which has followed her relationship with Albie, who is keen to stay out of the public eye.
Although she insists Albie, who lives and works in New York, is still the one for her, she has admitted their long distance romance isn't working.

She told viewers of the hit ITVBe show: "How can I see a future with someone when I can't physically be with them for the foreseeable future?
"I was naive to think the long distance thing would be okay. We have broken up and it is proper s**t.
"It sucks to say that I think he was the right guy, and I want to stress this, the right guy at the wrong time.
"But that to me just means it wasn't right at all. I think yet again, Ferne McCann is officially back on the market."
She continued: "There's a lot of time to think which isn't the best when you're an over-thinker. I've had a lot of time to think and it is massively putting the strain on my relationship.
"Long distance relationships are hard. Not knowing when I'm next going to see him is rubbish. The conversation, it's dead.
"There's nothing to talk about is there? 'What are you up to? Not a lot.' It's very monotonous.
"It's completely out of both of our hands. I can't help but think this is for a reason."
Last month, Ferne opened up on her relationship with Albie in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine, revealing she planned to have children with him.

She said: "Being a single parent, I've always said I can't imagine parenting with someone else because that's not been my experience so far.
"But being so in love with Albie, I do feel like he's the one. He's such an amazing guy. When you're in love with someone, you think about the future and getting married and having more children, and he has definitely made me feel like that.
"We haven't spoken about it, but me being me, I'm like, 'Yeah, we're going to get married and have children,' and he doesn't even bat an eyelid. He's like, 'Alright, Ferne!' He's made me see a hopeful future. I'm happy."
