Fern announced her split from husband Phil Vickery in 2020 and moved to Cornwall with her daughters and pet cats.

Last autumn, the star shared that she was in no rush to get into another relationship, having been married twice.

Fern and her first husband, Clive Jones, were married for 12 years and share twin sons Harry and Jack, 27, and daughter Grace, 24.

Fern and Phil are parents to 19-year-old daughter Winnie.

Speaking to The Mirror about her life post-split, the 63-year-old said: "I am enjoying not having to share life with somebody else."

She went on: "I'm not a man-hater. Men are great. I don't think I'm prepared to hand over my autonomy just yet.

"That's not to say I don't miss being married, because I have been married to two incredible husbands for over 30 years, so I have been married for a very long time," she said.
