In a statement released today, Ferne said her ‘thoughts are of course with the innocent people caught up in the events at Mangle last April’
TV star Ferne McCann has broken her silence after her ex Arthur Collins was found guilty of injuring 14 people in an acid attack.
Arthur, the father of Ferne's first child Sunday, was told this week to expect a "very substantial" jail sentence after he was found guilty of five counts of GBH and nine counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
A statement released on her behalf said: "Ferne's thoughts are of course with the innocent people caught up in the events at Mangle last April. No one should ever be faced with violence on a night out.
"Having given birth days ago, Ferne is focussing on being the best mother she can be. She long ago accepted that she would be doing this alone and is determined to provide the best possible future for her daughter."
It comes after The Sun revealed how Collins has plagued the Towie star with phone calls from behind bars.
Ferne, 27, has been trying to put the nightmare of her fiance’s nightclub acid attack behind her.
She has just given birth to their baby daughter Sunday and shared photos of them together to her 1.8million Instagram followers.
Ferne wrote: “Welcome to the world my darling. Didn’t expect to see you a week early. I’m so in love and bursting with pride. It’s a girl.”
The TV star is believed to be planning to move away from Essex to bring up Sunday.
But former partner Collins is struggling with the break-up of their relationship since the acid attack and has regularly called her.
Collins carried out the acid attack hours after he and Ferne went to break the news of her pregnancy to her family on Easter Sunday.
He told the court: “On the Sunday we went to a family BBQ. That’s when we told them.
“It’s the most happy I have ever felt, we were both really happy.
“Her mum was there, her grandad, her sister, her sister’s boyfriend and her littl’un.”
He told jurors he went to the nightclub to celebrate Ferne’s pregnancy.
But the proud father-to-be turned into a snarling monster who doused innocent young clubbers with acid in the horrific attack.
