TOWIE‘s Ferne McCann has broken her silence after Charlie Sims dramatically dumped her via TWITTER last week, before he also used his social media to quit the show.
And they say romance is dead.
Poor Ferne has admitted that the whole thing has left her ‘heartbroken’, not just because it feels like it totally came out of the blue.
If you need some cuddles, a tub of Ben & Jerry’s and some cheesy chick flicks, love, you know who to call. AKA us.
Charlie, 23, shocked us last week when he sensationally seemed to quit the orange-tinged reality show AND dump his lovely girlfriend in one foul swoop, all thanks to a ginormous Twitter rant.
In fact, this very public dumping was actually how Ferne found out that the couple’s relationship was over, which we’re guessing feels a bit like being punched in the teeth, stomach and heart all in one go.
Seriously, poor gal.
Opening up and breaking down in tears in an interview with Now magazine, the 24-year-old explained how she was feeling.
She said: “I’m devastated. I’m in shock more than anything. Today’s been a complete whirlwind. I’ve been up and down, I’ve been crying. I know I’m a tough cookie on the outside but I’m heartbroken.”
She also admitted that it all came out of the blue, adding: “As far as I’m concerned, things have been amazing. Up until this morning, he was the man I wanted to marry tomorrow. Now I just don’t know.
“I felt that after last Wednesday’s episode people were digging me out unnecessarily and Charlie and I were texting that night after the show. He said: ‘This isn’t good for anyone.’
“We had a little row, but left it on a good note and arranged to go for breakfast the next morning.
“Then, out of the blue, first thing on Thursday he gave me this ultimatum, saying: ‘It’s me or the show’.”
She continued: “TOWIE’s my job at the end of the day – it’s my career. His behaviour has made me question the future. Now I think we want different things in life.
“He was my everything but now it looks like that isn’t going to happen anymore and I have to re-evaluate my life. It’s really upsetting.”
Oh, and she also had a response for the way he used to Twitter to break the news: “But don’t run to Twitter and don’t try to control my life!
“I don’t think he’s thinking straight. I think he’ll regret those Tweets.”
Last week, Charlie tweeted: “So sad to not loose one.. But two people you love dearly to a TV show. Everyone can point the finger at me.. But I have morals. And dignity. And some sort of self respect.
“I wish @Chloe_Sims and @fernemccann the best with their lives. But always live knowing you chose the show.. And finally to the @OnlyWayIsEssex .. I won’t be taking part anymore.
Well, that’s one way to make an exit anyway.
