TOWIE star Ferne McCann isn't entirely ruling out a reunion with ex-boyfriend Charlie Sims, insisting: "You can never say never!"

Earlier this year, Ferne was left heartbroken after Charlie shockingly split with her. Since separating, the pair have managed to get back onto friendly terms and recently Ferne and Charlie were spotted partying together.

Instantly fans were quick to speculate whether a reunion could be on the cards and chatting to Reveal, Ferne admitted she wouldn't rule it out, although she is happy going it alone right now.

"You can never say never because you just don't know, but right now I want to be single," she told us.

Rumours she and Charlie could be rekindling their romance came after Charlie posted a touching message about his ex-girlfriend after bumping into Ferne during a night out.

Sharing a photo of the pair together, he said: "That exact moment when that person walks in the room... And you want to say 'I've missed you', but you don't! Because you know that is a complete understatement. @fernemccann #LongTimeNoSee."

Ferne admitted she found it "tough" seeing her former flame's post, despite it being nice to hear Charlie had missed her.

She said: "It's sad because that chapter's come to an end. Of course you're going to miss that person, that's inevitable. It was a tough one."

When asked what the situation is between herself and Charlie now, Ferne added: "We're still on the same page. We're still really good friends and we want each other to be happy.

"We are still working really well separated - I don't want to be with him at the moment and I don't think he particularly wants to be with me."

Fans were quick to speculate Charlie and Ferne were getting back together after seeing this picture.

While many can't understand how the exes are remaining friends after several years of dating each other, Ferne insists she wouldn't have it any other way.

"People can't get their head around the fact that we're still friends," she explained. "It would be a shame not to be when you've given so much of your time to that one person. We got together when we were teenagers, you don't want to just throw that all away."

Now single again, Ferne has been focusing on herself and has been throwing herself into trying new things.

Not only is she now a competitive netball player, she has signed up to tackle the Great Newham London Run and Swim in July, Ferne has a possible movie role in the pipeline and she is launching her very own clothing collaboration with Look Of The Day.

But despite her jam-packed schedule, Ferne did say she may be able to squeeze in a holiday romance if one comes her way...

Ferne with her TOWIE co-stars in Marbella last summer.

About to head to Marbella with her TOWIE co-stars, Ferne told us: "I'm sure I can fit one in!"

"If I meet someone that I fancy and I'm attracted to, of course, I'm not going to say no," she claims. "Honestly, I am so busy at the moment, it's hard to fit in men. If something comes along... it would be nice."

Heading to the Spanish party resort without a man on her arm, the Essex beauty admits Marbs is going to be a totally different experience for her this time round.

So what can we expect?

"You just never know, it's reality," she teases. "It's really exciting, I've found out who I'm sharing the villa with and I'm so happy about that. It's all my girlfriends and we're all single, so we're going to have a lot of fun."

Oh, we SO can't wait to see what the TOWIE girls will be getting up to!

Ferne is taking part in the Great Newham London Swim and the Morrisons Great Newham London Run on 18-19 July 2015. There's still time to enter - click here for more info or to sign up.
