She raised eyebrows when she jetted into Cannes on Sunday to mingle with A-listers including Rachel Weisz, Sienna Miller, and Miranda Kerr, but Ferne McCann has proven that she was doing more than merely making up the numbers.
Indeed, it has now been revealed that the Towie celeb was in the south of France for a series of exciting get-togethers with leading film executives.
"Ferne can't believe her luck. She was flown out for a lucrative meeting at the plush La Tonnelle restaurant," says an insider tells The Mirror today.
"She's always dreamed of being an actress, so she's really excited."
Yesterday, she attended a swish boat party wearing a nude wrap dress by Topshop and an YSL clutch. Meanwhile, on Monday night she wore a €200 black beaded dress from H&M when she attended a bash at The Carlton Hotel.
New Media Law director Ian Penman has since confirmed to The Mirror: "We are currently negotiating something for Ferne in Cannes."
The reality TV star split from her boyfriend of five-years Charlie Sims, also a Towie cast member, in March – after he dumped her on Twitter. Unsurprisingly, the move shocked Ferne.
She told Closer magazine recently: ''I thought my life was mapped out.
''Me and Charlie were looking at moving in and I imagined I'd be married by the age of 25 and ready to have kids.
''One night I went to bed, happily in a relationship the next, it was all over – and on social media. It was hard.''
