Ferne McCann could have a new man.
The 30-year-old reality star, who shot to fame on TOWIE, recently jetted to South Africa with her three-year-old daughter Sunday.
And amid flying love life rumours, Ferne appears to have struck up a romance with ripped male model Jack Padgett.
Fans started speculating that the two would catch each other’s eyes after they documented a trip to the same Cape Town beach – sharing very similar snaps of the native penguins.
And now photos obtained by MailOnline show them snuggling on Boulders Beach, seemingly confirming they’re an item.
Ferne’s been parading the sun-soaked trip on Instagram, including snaps with cute Sunday and her best pal Carl Cunard.
And though she hasn’t made mention of handsome Jack, fans are giddy with excitement that she could have a new fella in her life.
Taking Sunday to see the penguins yesterday, proud mum Ferne shared a snap of the toddler snoozing on her shoulder.
Turning her back on the rocky landscape and crystal blue sea beyond, Ferne took the opportunity to pen a sweet tribute to her daughter too.
“If I could give you one thing in life my baby girl,” she wrote, “I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes.
“Then…you would realise how special you are to me. The most special moments visiting the penguins on #bouldersbeach with my girl.”
And Ferne thanked Cape Town for the memories, adding: “I want to give a moment to give a little thanks to the most beautiful days in Cape Town.
“I am eternally grateful that I get to travel for work and I can also bring along my baby girl.”
This was the first time she clarified that she’s in the country for her career.
Ferne’s trip initially sparked controversy after she travelled from Essex, which is currently under Tier 4 restrictions.
That means travel abroad is forbidden except in certain instances, such as for work.
Her rumoured romance, meanwhile, comes after she told us that she was keeping an eye out for a man as the second lockdown loomed.
“I am looking for a boyfriend ready to sign a deal tomorrow,” she shared, “I cannot do another lockdown being single.”
The Mirror has contacted Ferne’s rep for comment.
