Ferne McCann has spent the last few months gushing over new boyfriend Lorri Haines on Instagram. Telling fans he’s “forever” and that “when you know, you know”, it seemed that the former TOWIE star was finally happy.
But last week, her world was rocked when a shocking video emerged of Lorri holding a small bag of suspicious white powder. In the video, a friend of the 30 year old can be heard saying, “No, no Ket. No Ket,” and then, “Put the Ket down.”
“Ket” is usually an abbreviation for the powerful anaesthetic drug ketamine.
Businessman Lorri was said to have spent the day partying on a yacht – without Ferne – in Dubai, where he lives, before carrying on the party at a friend’s pad. He has denied he was taking any drugs, arguing that he was simply “joking around”, but a source has said that Ferne will be “stunned” by this video regardless.
As heat previously told you, Ferne, 31, has been planning to move to Dubai part-time to be able to spend more time with her new beau. The mum of one – who has recently been holidaying in the Maldives with Lorri and her four-year-old daughter Sunday – showcased her love for her new boyfriend in a recent romantic Instagram post for Valentine’s Day.

Mark Wright, Lauren Goodger and Sam Faiers
The OG TOWIE triangle. When we were first introduced to the Essex lot, Mark was dating long term girlfriend Lauren but from the very first episode it was clear that he was less than committed by his outrageous flirting with one Sam Faiers.
Alongside a video of the pair cuddling and kissing on a beach, Ferne wrote, “Don’t ever be afraid to show your vulnerability. Don’t ever be afraid to share your past. Don’t ever be afraid to be yourself.
“In my opinion, everything you’ve ever been afraid to share is actually the key to your happiness and future. Never give up on love. Thank you for showing up for me. Thank you for showing me what a meaningful relationship looks like. Thank you for showing me integrity and honesty. Most importantly, thank you for showing me true love. I love you.”
Ferne had previously been dating model Jack Padgett, but the pair split up after six months. In her TV show First Time Mum, Ferne had said the break-up was “really abrupt” and “such a shock”.
She added that Jack had found it hard to deal with her celebrity lifestyle, saying, “You’ve got to have someone that’s on board. I’m not saying come and be in the public eye. But every guy that I’m with is either hiding behind a menu or saying, ‘Sorry, you’re not on brand for me.’”
Before Jack, the Essex native’s last public relationship was with Sunday’s father Arthur Collins, who is currently serving 20 years in prison for injuring 14 people in an acid attack in an east London club.
