The former This Morning host is best known for presenting the ITV breakfast programme from 1999 until 2009, first with John Leslie and then Phillip Schofield.
However, her eventual exit was full of drama due to a well-publicised fall out with her co-host, who she has said she ‘no longer speaks to’.
Although there were initially reports the two would be set to meet again in the Big Brother house that didn’t eventuate, however Fern has found herself in a tiff with former Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu after saying their conversations weren’t ‘particularly enlightening’.
As we continue to watch the 66-year-old have a no holds barred approach, not unlike Louis Walsh, what do we know about her life away from the cameras, specifically her marriage to TV chef Phil Vickery?
