Fans of the former This Morning host can see her head back down memory lane in a repeat of Fern Britton’s Cornwall on Channel 5 on Friday night. The presenter looks back on her childhood and happy memories spent on the beach with her family. However, Fern recently revealed her family had been kept in the dark for many years about an estranged relative.

Fern began: “I think a lot of women come quite late to the idea of feminism, which actually I would prefer to use the word equalism, we’re only asking for equality in everything we do.

“Men and women together, we are equal, it doesn’t matter what colour, what race, what sexuality you are, we are equal.

“When I write, very often, I like to write about women who make difficult decisions, they are strong women, they make decisions that may not be comfortable for others to read about but they have to do some things to get through life.”

Fern continued: “In my latest novel, I actually write about my grandmother who, oh gosh, she must have been in her late teens or early twenties, we’r not entirely sure, but it was towards the end of the first world war, she became pregnant and she had a son.
