Cornwall news Fern Britton opens up about her single life in Cornwall UK news
PremierLeague-News.Com - Cornwall - The former This Morning presenter moved indefinitely to Cornwall and confessed she still hasn't had time to unpack all her stuff
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Fern Britton moved to Cornwall in 2020, following her split from chef Phil Vickery. After 20 years of marriage, the author and former This Morning star has opened up about her new life as a single woman. The former Strictly Come Dancing participant used to live in Buckinghamshire with Vickery and her daughter Winnie. And, since her big move, Britton hasn’t had time to unpack all her stuff, she told PA. She said she can’t continue her beloved cycling - she used to do mammoth journeys - because she can’t even find her bikes. “The move to Cornwall filled up the house with so much stuff, I can’t find the bikes," she said. "I haven’t unpacked fully in the last two years. The garage is still full of boxes, but I’m so busy doing things. There’s more to life than emptying the garage.” Read more: Gary Barlow is coming to Cornwall to 'tell his life story' at Hall for Cornwall During the pandemic Britton lived with her daughters, Grace (from her first marriage) and Winnie (from her marriage to Vickery), while her older twin sons Harry and Jack have flown the nest. Much of the last two years has been spent researching her latest novel, The Good Servant, a royal tale of fiction with a factual backdrop. The 538-page tome centres on Marion Crawford, devoted governess to Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret (the current Queen and her late sister) for 11 years from 1936 to 1947.

It made me want to go to university and do my history degree, which I never did.

. It just played itself out. It’s been fine.” Now single, she said she has no particular desire to start dating again. “I’ve got lovely friends and I have a lovely social life, which is quite enough for me," she explained. "I like to be in bed at nine o’clock – it’s great.” And she’s not quite ready for grandchildren. “My grandson is my little dog, a Chihuahua. I’d like grandchildren eventually but I don’t want to force my children into having children just for me. And I’m not quite ready to take up granny duties yet. I’m enjoying my life.” Her book, The Good Servant, sees Crawfie, as she was nicknamed, become a companion to the future Queen and an important employee until she meets and falls in love with shady ex-army divorcee George Buthlay, 16 years her senior. An alcoholic and womaniser, he is not painted in a good light in this fictional tale. They were engaged for more than ten years and she put off their marriage because of her commitment to the job, until Buthlay drew up a contract on her behalf with US publishers Bruce and Beatrice Gould for a manuscript called The Little Princesses, based on Crawford’s experiences, for which she was paid $85,000. Another three books are on the cards – Britton is currently working on the next one, which will return to Cornwall, a regular setting of her previous novels. And, in September, she will be returning on Channel 5 with another series of My Cornwall.
