The reality star was pictured arriving at Elliott Wright's restaurant Olivia's with a string of co-stars on Sunday evening (20 September), shortly after arriving in Spain to start filming the new series of TOWIE.
Ferne's choice of a pretty white dress complemented her tan, no doubt thanks to her recent holiday to Ibiza. She finished her look with white sandals, a pretty snake print clutch bag, tousled hair and minimal make-up.
Ferne recently revealed that she'd overcome her "date phobia" and was ready to get back on the dating scene. Her last romance was with long-time boyfriend and former co-star Charlie Sims.
"Recently, they're coming out of the woodworks," Ferne said. "There's a few people on the phone, texting, calling, wanting to take me out on dates. I developed this ridiculous date phobia that I just can't seem to take myself on dates. I was just building it up in my head and getting really nervous and anxious which is not really like me because I normally love a date - a cheeky little date, get taken out and wined and dined."
"I overcame the date phobia last night," she continued. "I just thought, 'Ferne, pull yourself together and go on the date'. I'd been speaking to him for a while. We went on the date and I had a lovely little time. Bring on Marbella, I'm looking forward to more dates!"
