Back in July, the former TV presenter candidly opened up about the “new chapter” in her life following the end of their 20-year marriage. “This new chapter has come at the right time for me,” she told Prima Magazine. “I don’t want to be the poster girl for separation, though, because a lot of people go through the same thing.

“Often, the children leave home and you look at each other and go, ‘Ah, where do we go from here?’ I only wish I was the sort of person who could have persevered through that, but I couldn’t.”

Asked whether she has found anyone since the split, Fern commented: “I’m not considering dating right now. I haven’t been seeing anyone and nobody has approached me, which is nice, too.

“If someone came along who was lovely and kind and we didn’t have to live together – if he had his life and I had mine – that might be perfect. But on the other hand, life is pretty bloody perfect right now and I’m happy with my company, so meeting someone would simply be icing on the cake.”

Fern and Phil were married for 20 years

Fern and Phil announced their separation in January 2020 by posting the same statement on social media, which read: “After more than 20 happy years together, Phil and I have decided to go our separate ways.

“We will always share a great friendship and our lovely children. We would appreciate it if our privacy is respected at this time. Thank you for your continued kindness and support.”

The former couple share daughter Winnie, 21, whilst the Ready Steady Cook presenter also has twins Harry and Jack, 28, and Grace, 25, with former husband Clive.
