Ferne has previously spoken to MailOnline about life as a single mother, as she admitted when times are hard, she can become reflective of what life could be – having admitted she grew depressed amid her ex’s incarceration.

She said: ‘If you do give it enough thought you do think what could’ve been, but then I wouldn’t want to change anything because it’s me and Sunday and I’m happy…

‘I never felt unable to cope and that I couldn’t go on because I always had the light at the end of the tunnel which was Sunday and I always had that positive, beautiful thing so yeah I had dark times but I never felt unable to cope.’
