Fern Britton, 64, caught skinny dripping by neighbours in awkward encounter

Former This Morning star Fern Britton has found peace after ditching her clothes and taking a dip in her birthday suit.

The television presenter, 64, recently moved to Cornwall after taking a step back from a hectic filming schedule in favour of a quieter life on the coast.

But that hasn't gone without its troubles, with Fern claiming her neighbours caught her in the act when she was least expecting it.

Instead of heading to the main beach, Fern often makes the trip to a "quiet little cove" close to her home, with water flowing in from the English Channel.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she explained: "I saw some people on the cliff and thought, 'Oh, b****r'."

Ferne recently opened up about stepping away from morning television, which saw her lose the privilege of having a chauffeur-driven car at any moment.

She said: "In the first month or so, I would walk out of the house waiting for a car to be there, because for ten years I had this wonderful driver who'd silently slink up outside the house or my work — or if I wanted to go shopping in the West End.

"For a while, I would walk out the front door, going, 'Where's the bloody car?'"

It comes just two years after Fern and ex-husband Phil Vickery announced they were splitting after more than two decades together with the presenter finding solace in "yoga, meditation and walking".

She opened up to Kathe Thornton's White Wine Question Time podcast, explaining that kids were "the last chance saloon" when it came to her marriage.

Fern recently shared insight into her IVF experience with her first husband Clive Jones.

The star also expressed the issues she had trying to conceive with TV chef Phil and how they both believed that they were running out of time.

During Fern's first marriage to Clive, the former couple had twin boys, Jack and Harry, after conceiving through IVF.

Fern had three children, twin boys Jack and Harry as well as daughter Gracie with her first husband Clive, explaining: "Unfortunately my marriage broke up when she was five months [old].

"So that was a tricky one so I had a year of really digging deep, but then a year later I met Phil, we were married after a year so that was two years since Gracie was born.

"And then the last chance saloon, I always say it’' late-night shopping just before the doors close, Winnie arrived."

Fern gave birth to her and Phil's daughter, Winnie, in August 2021.
