While many rushed to Ascot Racecourse to get a slice of the action this week, Ferne McCann decided to hold her very own event at home.

The Only Way Is Essex star lead the glam at her Ferne's Royal Ascot event, which she held for her friends on Thursday.

Celebrating the event in a marquee in her back garden, Ferne looked stunning as she mingled with her guests.

She posed in front of the mirror in her hallway, sharing with her 2.6 million followers a short video of herself wearing a stunning white long-sleeved suit, finished off with an elaborate black and white hat.

There was a cocktail bar on site, provided by Tropical Latin Bar, with a bespoke menu full of Ferne's favourite drinks.

Her pals could choose to enjoy an Appletini – a mix of vodka, apple liqueur, lime juice and apple juice – or a Picante, made up of tequila, coriander, jalapeno chilli, agave syrup and lime juice.

For those who like rum, there was a traditional daiquiri on offer, made with lime juice, sugar and strawberry.

She even had her own cocktail menu devised for the event
