The 'Only Way is Essex' star was devastated when her former co-star ended their four-year relationship earlier this year but thinks there's a chance they could rekindle their romance as they still get on so well.

She said: "I'd never rule out us getting back together again in the future.

"We still speak to each other regularly and I love him with all my heart and care a lot for him, just not in that way.

"We're just great friends. It didn't end badly."

Ferne, 25, admits her role on the TV show makes her feel "pressured" to look good but insists there is no rivalry between her and her co-stars.

She said: "There's no competition between the girls - we all help each other out - but there's pressure being on TV and having to look glam."

And the lingerie model is particularly impressed by the transformations former 'TOWIE' stars Gemma Collins and Lauren Goodger have undergone.

She told Closer magazine: "Gemma is one of my really good friends and I'm really proud of her. Shes looking amazing after losing 3st.

"I saw Lauren recently and was in utter shock. She looks absolutely amazing, what a transformation

"I couldn't believe it.

"She's lost so much weight but when you feel good about yourself it just shines through."
