Flexible Fern Britton performs the splits

Wednesday April 13, 2011

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.
