Ferne split from the baby’s father Arthur earlier this year, amid allegations that he carried out an acid attack at an east London club, leaving 22 people injured.

It was reported this summer that the former TOWIE star had gone to visit the 25-year-old scaffolder and businessman at HMP Thameside in south London – although they had no plans to get back together.

A source instead stressed that Ferne was visiting Arthur to discuss matters surrounding their unborn child.

The insider divulged to The Sun: ‘They are most certainly not back together and she has no intentions of doing so.

‘But she saw him to discuss certain matters, given she is carrying his unborn child. She clearly didn’t want to be seen as she went in and kept a very low profile.’

Arthur recently denied carrying out the acid attack which left two clubbers partially blinded and others disfigured.

He pleaded not guilty in June to six counts of causing grevious bodily harm and 11 of actual bodily harm when he appeared at Wood Green Crown Court today via video link from HMP Thameside.

A 24-year-old man and 22-year-old woman were each blinded in one eye, and up to 18 others were burnt after the attack outside the Mangle nightclub in Dalston, east London in April.
