The reality star broke down in tears while chatting with co-star Jessica Wright poolside on Wednesday (11 June), prompting fans on wonder what has made her so upset.
An emotional Ferne looked as if she was pouring her heart out to Jessica, who comforted her with a hug and looked to be listening intently.
The tearful pictures came the same day Mail Online published a video of Ferne wrapping her arms around a mystery man's neck during a recent Las Vegas holiday – not her boyfriend Charlie Sims – although she doesn't do anything in the video except dance around with him and a big group.
Is that what made her break down? A source tells us: "Ferne was filming a scene for TOWIE and was in tears about the Las Vegas video. She'd gone to find Jessica by the pool for some support."
The whole cast have been in Marbella since the weekend filming the opening scenes for the twelfth series, which begins 22 June.
Thankfully for Ferne fans, however, she didn't spend the whole of yesterday weeping. Last night, she posted a photo to Twitter showing herself beaming while standing next to a female friend.
Ferne wrote: "Tonight made me happy seeing this girl @sarahnewn."
The power of a good friendship! (And giant cocktails?!)
