Ferne McCann admitted that she wants to be engaged to her new boyfriend Lorri Haines by her 32nd birthday on Wednesday’s episode of First Time Mum.
During the instalment, Ferne, 31, gushed over her new romance, admitting that it was a “whirlwind”, while best friend James Argent teased her for being a “hopeless romantic”.
At the start of episode one of series eight, it showed a teaser clip of the entire season as one moment saw Ferne sharing her engagement plans to a stunned Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd.
Speaking in a VT, Ferne, who first went public with Lorri back in January, said: “I’ve met the one, he’s my soulmate! I can see him being a father to my children.”

The scene then cut to Ferne talking to Billie and Greg as she admitted: “I want to be engaged by my 32nd birthday…”
With a gobsmacked Greg laughing as he replied: “Wow, wow!” with Billie joking: “Ooh, that’s not long!”
Later in the episode, Ferne admitted in a VT that she was falling in love as she said: “I know this sounds quick but I actually think that I love him already.
“Like, I’m starting to question if I’ve ever been in love with anyone before.”
She added to her best friend Carl: “It is a whirlwind but I just think, when you know, you know…”
Later on, Ferne went to a boxing class with other close pal Arg as he teased her for being a “hopeless romantic”.
Arg quipped: “You are a hopeless romantic, aren’t you?” with Ferne protesting: “Oh don’t!” to which Arg added: “You are terrible!”
He continued: “Don’t get me wrong, he’s a very handsome man. I’ve got mutual friends with him and he seems like a really cool fella. He might well be the one but the way you just throw yourself in so early doors. You go Instagram official so soon!”
With Ferne again protesting: “Oh, don’t, no, but I feel it this time! Do you know what? I’m a sucker for love!”
To which Arg said: “Yeah, but you could do all this in privacy… it’s just the way you announce it to the world. You just get so gassed.
“If he is the one and it all works out, I’ll be the happiest person for you in the world because I want nothing more than that for you.”

The reality star first went public with Lorri back in January this year as she shared a series of loved-up snaps of them together.
Since then, the couple have gone from strength to strength with Lorri, 31, who has a son from a previous relationship, moving in with Ferne in the UK.
