Ferne McCann's movie star career
Ferne McCann wants to become a movie star.
The 25-year-old reality TV beauty, who won over the nation when she appeared on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!' last month, is following her dreams and heading stateside in a bid to crack it internationally as an actress.
A source explained: "Ferne has quickly become the nation's sweetheart since her stint on 'I'm A Celeb' but she doesn't want to be stuck on a reality show forever.
"She's heading to Hollywood for a series of secret meetings with major studios in the hope she can fulfill her dream of becoming a movie star.
"It's what she's dreamed of since she was a little girl and she's ready to take the next step. Film producers have been impressed with what they've seen so far."
And the brunette beauty is determined to do all it takes to be successful and has been undergoing private acting lessons to make sure she's ready for her auditions in the US.
She told The Sun newspaper: "Acting is one of my ambitions and I'm really learning the craft. I've always done it in my school life and that but I've started acting lessons one-to-one and a lot of my friends are in that kind of industry so I'd love to act. My dream is to feature in a film."
However, Ferne's decision to head across the pond could shatter her chances of ever returning to 'The Only Way is Essex', the show which made her famous, in the future.
