Fearne McCann has turned down a chance to go to Portugal or Ibiza choosing to have a campervan holiday with her daughter and a group of friends in Cornwall.
The former TOWIE star has driven to Porthtowan on the north Atlantic coast with a group of mates and Sunday, her three-year-old.
They’ve hired the vehicle from their home town in Essex, and have driven 300 miles to the idyllic seaside resort and the journey took them eight hours.
Fearne – who spent the first part of this year in South Africa – has been sharing her Famous Five-style adventure with her 2.6 million folllowers on Instagram.
She posted a video of the group arriving, joking , “I’m a broken woman” after a gruelling eight-hour drive. But when she saw her little girl playing happily barefoot in the grass, she admitted, “It’s beautiful here, this is what I live for.”
Meanwhile, Fearne’s friend Sarah was enjoying wine from a mug, having been allowed to have a drink during the long journey, as Fearne drove.
The First Time Mum star then posted some of the highlights of the holiday so far, including some gorgeous evening scenes.
Sunday ran along the beach as the sun went down, and then the group sat by the shore for dinner with a stunning view.
Getting the camper van prepared for everyone to sleep in was no easy task though, and Fearne’s friends were giggling like little children as they made up the bunks. Fearne admitted it took “an hour and a half to assemble the beds.”
In another picture, captioned “Caravan Life,” Fearne’s pal Carl bumps his head on the ceiling as a panel from the roof of the van lowers down.
After a good night’s sleep, the 30-year-old confirmed that her daughter Sunday was loving her new surroundings. She posted, “One happy camper this morning” as the three-year-old cuddled a local dog.
Fearne then shared more images of her little girl and admitted, “Think I’m going to have to get this one a pooch. Stopped every two secs to say hello to every dog in Porthtowan.”
Finally the mum and daughter took a trip to the beach. While Fearne wore a bikini top and shorts, and Sunday wore a bright pink flamingo-print swimsuit, Fearne revealed that other holidaymakers weren’t as brave with their clothes when out in the English summertime.
“There’s actually people here at this beach in their winter coats,” she said. “And I do keep saying to Sunday, ‘Are you cold, babes?’”
Sunday, sitting on her mum’s shoulders, laughingly says “No.”
Fearne then pointed out that she and her daughter were wearing matching shoes, saying “Croc gang!”
Yesterday, Fearne admitted that she was buzzing at the thought of having a holiday. Even though she couldn’t go abroad, she said she was excited for the new experience.
“Who’s excited for this staycay?” the former TOWIE star excitedly said. “Finally going to, not Portugal anymore. No, it’s not Ibiza, but we are going to Cornwall. I’m absolutely buzzing.”
