She’s gone “au naturel” during lockdown – ditching the hair extensions and heavy make-up. But Ferne McCann will always be a TOWIE girl at heart, and that means never shying away from a procedure or two. According to insiders, the recently single star has decided it’s time to sex up her image to find a new man – and that means boosting her bust.

Oh YASS, the glow up is real.Check out Lauren Goodger in 2018. We don't know what magical moisturiser she is using but we are well jel - she looks younger. She briefly returned to TOWIE and has since launched her tanning brand LG Tan.
TOWIE's sweet heart and cousin to TOWIE royalty, Amy Childs, at the afterparty of a film premiere. Looking so young and fresh faced.
After quitting the show TWICE in 2014 (so, extra) he followed in his cousin Amy Childs' footsteps and opened his own boutique which later closed down. Now, he is a social media influencer and make-up artist and slaying the game. He has also announced his adoption plans with his fiancé Dean Rowland.
Do you remember when she was a brunette? Yeah, no one does.
"So, girls"She later ditched the bangs, the brunette hair and the excessive tan.After becoming TOWIE's most meme'ed star, she's launched her own TV show Diva Forever, dropped a podcast and she continues to be in an on/off relationship with James 'Arg' Argent.
Amy Childs in her signature red hair back in 2010 - on the red carpet for the launch of The Only Way Is Essex.
After being the first one to quit the show, she stormed the showbiz world with her own reality TV show, starred in Celebrity Big Brother and she is now reported to be worth over £5 million. She's also a mum to Polly and Rich.
Other than being an immediate TOWIE heartthrob / major palyer, he also used to model early on in his career.
Mark is now happily married to Michelle Keegan. He has his own radio show, he used to be the face of Take Me Out: The Gossip and he ventured across the pond to work with Mario Lopez on Extra.
This is what he looked like in 2011, a year after TOWIE launched.
Following his break-up from his on screen love, Lydia Bright, he took sometime off from TOWIE. He appeared on and off for a number of series but in 2020 he opened up about his cocaine addiction and eating disorder. He is now in an on/off relationship with Gemma Collins.
Lydia opened her own boutique as soon as she joined TOWIE. She left the show after major drama with co-stars James Argent and Gemma Collins.
Lydia's now mum to a little girl, Loretta.
Quintessential Essex glamour is the best way to describe this picture but she definitely wins the best glow up...
She 100% glowed up the most. Her life changed drastically since she first appeared on TOWIE. After leaving the show, she became a mother to Paul and Rosie. She followed Amy Childs' footsteps and joined Celebrity Big Brother and she has her own show The Mummy Diaries. You go girl.
He is a TOWIE original. He left the show three years after first appearing on our TV screens.
Not much has changed, except he is a dad to two children now.
She had a very short time on TOWIE after she was dubbed "just a f***ing extra" by Kirk - harsh, right?
We use the term 'now" very loosely with Maria, this picture is from early 2017 - that's because we can't find any recent pics as she is keeping it on the down low. We do know that is she is a makeup artist now, she's married to Kelvin Batey and they're expecting their second child later this year.
“Ferne’s been desperate to have a boob job for years,” says an insider close to the First Time Mum star, who recently posted seriously fit pictures after undergoing a 21-day body transformation challenge.
“She studies photos of herself in detail and compares herself to other celebrities. She wants a raunchy image, as she thinks that every man loves a woman with a Kim Kardashian-style hourglass figure. She reckons that, with some subtle changes, she can look sexier and less athletic.”
While the 29 year old – who has daughter Sunday, two – has been open about having a nose job in the past, she’s denied having any other surgery. But according to our source, her recent split from city trader Albie Gibbs, which she blamed on long-distance (he’s living in New York), has left her feeling insecure.
She’s now convinced that bigger boobs will bag her a new man – and she won’t be told otherwise. “Her friends and family are just hoping that she’ll forget about it after lockdown eases,” we’re told. “They’re telling her it’s a cheap fix and she’ll have to live with the results for the rest of her life.”
Listen to your mates, Ferne. They’ve got your breast interests at heart.
