An inventive TV host and a super working mother, Fern Britton has aged like a fine wine through the years. And although Britton's two marriages had been unsuccessful, she still managed to be a great role model for thousands of her fans with the message that there lies more beyond marriages to live a happy life.
Fern Britton Was Married To Clive Jones
Fern Britton is a twice-married woman whose first marriage involves with her first husband, Clive Jones. When Fern met and fell in love with the TV executive, he was already a married man. But, that still didn't prevent Clive from having an affair with Fern. However, when Fern found out the truth, she left Clive as she wanted something more serious.
But, a couple of days later, Jones broke off his marriage with his first wife and knocked on Fern's door and begged to take him back. Fern who was in love with Fern obviously welcomed Jones to marry him on 12th November 1988, as reported by The Sun. Fern and Clive were able to maintain their marriage successfully for nearly a decade before they finalized their divorced in January 1998.
Fern shares three children with her former husband including twin sons named Harry Jones and Jack Jones who they welcomed in 1994. And, three years later in 1997, Britton gave birth to their third child, a daughter named Grace Jones.
Fern Britton Then Married Phil Vickery
Not long after her split from Clive Jones, Fern Britton then met TV chef, Phil Vickery on the set of Ready Steady Cook. Britton actually learned through her program's producer that Phil had a crush on her. And, that was a bit of shocking news for the TV host who thought she would never get married again as she was already a mom to three kids and in her forties.
Britton and her then-future husband came out as a couple in 1999 prior to their first kiss in 1998 at London Zoo where Ready Steady Cook celebrated their 500th edition. Then in 2000, Fern and Phil married, a year before they welcomed their first and only daughter, Winnie Vickery in August 2001.
Mr. Vickery, likewise, was already married to his first wife, Sarah Ann Lock whom he divorced in 1999. But, Britton and Vickery's marriage was comparatively successful before they split in early 2020. Fern and Phil also renewed their marital vows in 2008. But, that happiness couldn't last longer when Phil cheated on Fern with his researcher colleague.
Britton split from Phil after learning his adultery and went on to live separately too. However, when Fern and Phil united again inside a car, the couple began to have a chitchat and laugh and the moment brought them together again. Needless to say, Britton reconciled her relationship with Vickery. But, in January 2020, Fern announced on Twitter that she and Phil parted ways. The former husband and wife, however, are still friends.
