We've been missing Ferne on TOWIE! She announced in February she was leaving the show to focus on other projects, following her successful stint in the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle just before Christmas.

At the time, she said: "Many of you have been wondering if I will be returning back to Essex after my adventure Down Under. I have been super busy since I've been back from Australia, which means you won't be seeing as much of [me] on The Only Way Is Essex.

"You might enjoy the break! However, if any of my friends ever need me or need my advice I will make sure I am back to Essex to help them."

And she's stayed true to that word, popping up on a handful of occasions since then.

Ferne now hosts the showbiz slot on This Morning.

As for whether she'd ever return full time, she told fans on Snapchat in May: "Right now, no. You never know in the future, but probably not. I kind of feel like my TOWIE days are done. It was definitely a rollercoaster and I had a lot of fun, but now not being on the show allows me to do other things."

Ferne's currently in Italy with Vicky Pattison filming a new TV show with This Morning.

TOWIE continues Wednesday at 10pm on ITVBe.
