Flexible Fern Britton performs the splits

She may be 53, but limber Fern Britton is still able to perform gymnastic feats with ease.

The presenter stunned viewers of her Channel 4 programme, Fern, when she did the splits in a tight red dress and fishnet tights on Tuesday.

Adding that she had become more flexible since her dramatic weight loss, Fern said: "I've always been bendy." 

The mum of four dropped from a size 22 to a size 14-16 after having a gastric band fitted in 2006.
