FERNE McCann beamed as she left a posh London hotel yesterday with Jack Fincham's pal Ricky Larl.
The pair looked in high spirits as they stepped out of the five-star Corinthia hotel after having coffee and walked by the Thames on a blistering day in the capital.
A source said: "Ferne and Ricky are just friends. They went for a morning coffee with two of Ferne's female friends there as well."
Ricky, whose friendship with Love Island favourite Jack goes back two decades, wore a buttoned down linen shirt that perfectly complemented Ferne's stylish blazer.
She tied the jacket around her waist to reveal a brown mini dress which she wore with white sandals.
After the stroll they were seen leaving in Ricky's gun metal Ferrari. A glance at his social media reveals a love of stylish clothes, sunny holidays and expensive cars.
Last month we exclusively revealed how Ferne and her marketing manager ex Jack Padgett had split because they were at "different stages in life".
A source told us: “Ferne has called time on her relationship with Jack Padgett.
“Ferne said it was a case of ‘right guy wrong time’.
“It was clear to all of us that they were both on different paths.
“Jack’s life revolves around hosting events and nightlife because that’s his job.
“Whereas Ferne is all about family, work and security.
“Her working days are so full on that their diaries literally clashed.”
Ferne's romance with Jack was revealed in December when the pair were spotted kissing while on holiday in South Africa.
The First Time Mum star revealed in February that her new beau had moved in with her and three-year-old daughter Sunday for lockdown – saying he was "The One".
But the TV personality now believes the two are not compatible as partners as she needs more from the relationship.
The source added: “She’s sad but she’s realistic about the situation, that nightlife lifestyle just isn’t her and hasn’t been for years.
“As much as Ferne likes Jack, she’s at a different stage in her life.
“She wants to be with someone who’s on the same wavelength and wants the same things out of life.
“She has no regrets. They both got on great and had a lot of fun, but you need more than that in a relationship.”
The former Towie star, who juggles being a single mum with running a fitness business, previously dated New York-based boyfriend Albie Gibbs – but the pair went their separate ways in May 2020.
Before that her ex Arthur Collins was jailed over a nightclub acid attack in 2017, and Ferne was left devastated for his victims.
