Fern Britton, 63, has insisted she is not looking for love following her split with husband Phil Vickery, 59. The former This Morning host, who had been in a relationship with the TV chef for over two decades, revealed she enjoys being independent.
Fern said: “I am enjoying not having to share life with somebody else.
“I’m not a man-hater. Men are great.
“I don’t think I’m prepared to hand over my autonomy just yet.”
Fern has recently moved house and explained that being single means she can make all the decisions about decor.
