While he has amassed a fortune, Wilson  – whose firm Chase New Homes is building hundreds of properties in Hertfordshire – is reportedly not a fan of the limelight.

After messaging Ferne on Instagram, the pair were soon enjoying a string of memorable dates, with a source saying: ‘He charmed her with lavish dates and gifts.

‘But he isn’t keen on being in the public eye so he didn’t want to be part of her show. He’s very generous but quite shy so found the idea of fame overwhelming.’

Despite their fun-filled time together, the pair are said to have gone their separate ways last month. 

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ferne McCann for comment. 

On First Time Mum, Ferne was seen taking her mystery suitor up on his offer for a luxury trip to France.

The reality star said she wanted to know the identity of the man following his kind gesture, after previously admitting she was considering becoming celibate after splitting from her boyfriend Albie Gibbs.

Former TOWIE star Ferne received a phone call while going through clothes with her pal, and didn’t ever reveal much about Mr C’s identity.
