It comes after Ferne revealed on Wednesday that she and Jack are living together amid lockdown.
Speaking on Loose Women, the former TOWIE star detailed her experience of sharing her home with the model, telling the panel that it is ‘strange and wonderful’.
Ferne had virtually joined Ruth Langsford, Brenda Edwards, Janet Street-Porter and Coleen Nolan to discuss her appearance on Celebrity Best Home Cook, but talk soon turned to her love life.
Explaining that Jack is now living with her and daughter Sunday, three, she said: ‘We decided to do lockdown together which is a really big deal for me, ladies.
‘I did lockdown one as a single woman and now I am living with a guy.’

Detailing her new experience, she explained: ‘It is strange and wonderful and new all at the same time, so yeah, I am happy.’
The reality star also spoke about her having therapy and her initial ’embarrassment’ at over seeing a therapist for the past few years.
She said: ‘I always felt quite embarrassed to speak about the fact that I had been seeing a therapist for the best part of three years.
‘I feel like there is a stigma in the UK attached to therapy, I almost felt ashamed, it’s like you have hit rock bottom or had a breakdown. For me that wasn’t the case at all, I just wanted to better myself and speak to someone who was impartial.

Exciting: Speaking on Loose Women, she detailed her experience of sharing her home with the model (pictured), telling the panel that it is ‘strange and wonderful’
‘It has been a really positive experience, especially in the lockdown. I committed to still having my therapy sessions over Zoom and I can’t recommend it enough… If anyone is thinking about speaking to someone or having therapy I would say absolutely go for it because it has been a great experience for me.’
Last week Ferne confirmed her new romance with Jack and admitted that she’s relieved to no longer go through the ‘struggles of single life.’
The First Time Mum star told MailOnline she is officially off the market, after being pictured passionately kissing model Jack in South Africa last month.
In an exclusive interview, Ferne, revealed she’s ‘really excited’ about her relationship and has enjoyed saying goodbye to life as a single woman in lockdown.

She told MailOnline: ‘I have met someone. But it is early days and I don’t want to divulge into too much information.
‘We will see. I am excited, I am really, really excited about how this will go and how it will develop.
‘Obviously I was single in lockdown so I knew the struggles of single life – it was like do you go on the apps? Am I going to meet someone randomly?’
Meanwhile, Speaking on FUBAR Radio’s Access All Areas recently, Ferne admitted she and Jack have known each other for years and reconnected during lockdown.

Chatting to hosts Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng, she said: ‘I’m happy and it’s very early days, although I’ve known him for years.
‘I actually met him five years ago. In Marbs, would you believe it Bob. Of course, but yeah, it’s early days and I’ll just see where it goes.’
Ferne, who’s a mum to daughter Sunday, three, has been single since May when she and New York-based boyfriend Albie Gibbs went their separate ways.
The former TOWIE star split from Sunday’s father Arthur Collins, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for GBH and ABH, during her pregnancy.
Ferne told MailOnline in October last year she had been using celebrity-dating app Raya to meet her next partner – after turning 30 months earlier and asking herself: ‘Am I going to be single forever?’
She said at the time: ‘Turning 30… I had that whole moment where I’m still single… as a female, when you’re single at 30 you really start to question yourself and you think “am I ever going to find anyone?” This isn’t what I planned.’
