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.

She said: “I have autonomy over my time and what I want to do.”
The star is now living with three of her four children, a cat and her “grand dog” – her daughter’s dog.
The presenter revealed her house is “full of love”.
However, Fern, who was previously married to TV exec Clive Jones for 12 years, also admitted she misses the companionship of being in a marriage.
She added: “That’s not to say I don’t miss being married, because I have been married to two incredible husbands for over 30 years, so I have been married for a very long time – two very interesting men who survived being married to me.”
The author went on to address how “difficult” and “painful” her split was.
She divulged to The Mirror: “It is difficult and it is painful but let’s skip over that…
“I am not looking for anybody else.”
