Charlie Sims: Ferne McCann will regret choosing TOWIE over me
Charlie Sims thinks Ferne McCann will regret choosing 'The Only Way Is Essex' over him.
The 23-year-old star has confessed it was "upsetting" to have his girlfriend of nearly five years choose to remain on the show instead of work on their relationship but he thinks she'll come to regret her decision in the future.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Yeah it was a bit upsetting because we walked in to TOWIE together and I always dreamt one day we'd walk out together and it was a bit upsetting when she didn't want to come.
"But she's a big girl, she's 25 this year and she can make her own decisions in life and if me and her aren't meant to be together because of the show then that's just the way it is and I feel like she may look back one day and say was it actually worth it? Was it worth risking the supposed love of my life to walk away?
"Because if the shoe was on the other foot and she said to me, 'Charlie, I'm walking away and I want to start a new life together', I would've said, 'Yeah, no problem'."
The deli owner also went on to claim that the stars of the ITVBe show, including Ferne, need to understand that they're not as famous as they think they are.
He explained: "What Ferne doesn't have is that security away from TOWIE. I was lucky enough to build that so I can fall back on something but she hasn't got that so I think that was her biggest fear, falling back and being a nobody but what we all have to understand is, everybody from Essex, is that we might be somebody in Essex but we're a nobody in this world.
"This is a big wide world and I'm ready to go and explore it now. Brentwood is such a little dot on this map, even in England, and I'm ready to go on and do something else."
Charlie added: "I said to Ferne, 'We've done two years of this now, we've had two good years, I'm not sure how much longer it's going to last but I wasn't to walk out while I'm on a high and move on with my life', but she just didn't, she wanted to stay and she wants to be in TV and she wants to be Ferne from TOWIE. So if that's who you want to be in life that's fine but I can't tell her what to do with her life."
Charlie Sims was speaking at the Foxy Love Shop, hosted by Foxy Bingo and the new Foxy Casino which launched this week.
