Ferne McCann's new series of First Time Mum is in full swing and in tonight's episode (7 September 2021), she opens up to a familiar face about how she's feeling post breakup.

In an exclusive sneak peek of the upcoming show released by ITV, the mum-of-one can be seen chatting to former TOWIE co-star James Argent – who recently opened up about his weight loss – about her emotional split from ex- boyfriend Jack Padgett.

In our teaser clip, Ferne opens up to Arg about feeling "negative" and Arg offers her support and advice by opening up about his own breakups.

"I must stop being negative because ultimately I'm a mum and I need to just get on with it," she tells Arg. "You know, everyday I wake up and I'm like 'I'm going to be positive' but I can't."

Sensing that his friend is being a bit hard on herself, Arg comforts Ferne and says: "Listen, breakups are terrible I've been through, well…"

"Your fair share," adds Ferne, laughing.

Arg continues: "I've been through my fair share – only with two people – but I've had a few break ups with both of them and listen, it is horrible."

Arg is of course referring to his high-profile on-again off-again relationship with reality TV queen Gemma Collins and his rocky past with TOWIE's Lydia Bright.

"It's unlike me to be so negative," Ferne tells him. "I keep looking through old pictures of when it was good and yada yada yada. I'm actually irritating myself, like, this should be a walk in the park for me. I've been through worse."

"It's still very raw, It's still early day," says Arg in an attempt to comfort his mate. Ferne and Jack called time on their relationship in June during filming for the show. "Things will get better," he assures her.

The teaser closes with a spot of friendly wisdom from Arg.

"Summer's a great time to be single," he says. "You've got a bikini body, you may as well use it. Get it out."

It looks like the heart to heart lifted Ferne's spirits, but viewers will have to tune in to watch the full conversation.
