'Didn't think I would have one!' Fern Britton addresses 'problems' she had conceiving
Fern explained: "No! Had a few problems but the twins are IVF and that's wonderful and they are nearly 29 and doing their thing."They're great boys.

'How sad is that?' Fern Britton’s ex slammed by Karren Brady over reason behind divorce
The Apprentice star Karren Brady, 53, didn’t hold back while criticising Fern Britton’s ex-husband Clive Jones, to whom she was married from 1988 to 2000, before tying the knot with her now-ex-husband and This Morning co-star, Phil Vickery, 61. Karren was left seething after Fern revealed the reason behind her split from Clive - that she secretly took and passed a Mensa test, which gave her membership to the High IQ Society.An “immense rift” then occurred between the former couple when Clive didn’t pass the test with flying colours like Fern had done.According to Fern, the rift went on to spell the beginning of the end for their 12-year marriage.While discussing Fern’s comments about the demise of her marriage to the father of three of her four children, Karren wrote in her latest column: “So interesting to hear Fern Britton’s revelation that it was her success on the Mensa test that prompted her divorce from her ex-husband Clive Jones.”The businesswoman fumed: “How sad is that?” Elaborating on her opinion on the matter, Karren declared to The Sun: “If you are happy in a relationship, there is no need to out-do each other.”It comes after Fern explained why she took the Mensa test without her husband’s knowledge.Talking on the Walking The Dog with Emily Dean podcast, the author divulged: "He had this degree and I don’t [so] I secretly went off and did the Mensa."I lied, I said I was going somewhere else, and it took a day to do this test.

Fern Britton admits 'talking to her cats about her problems' as she misses ex Phil Vickery
Daily Mail's Weekend magazine: "There comes a point when the children are substantially off your hands and you look at each other and wonder where you’re going to go from here."Yoga-loving Fern added that her life has become more peaceful since closing the door on her relationship with Phil."People say they bounce back from a long relationship, but it takes a while," she clarified to Woman and Home magazine."The rebound is difficult. You chuck the pebble in the pond, but the ripples go on for a very long time.“It’s been a long time getting to the dawn, but I’m in another brand-new chapter and do feel it will be all right."It hasn't been easy for author and presenter Fern in the past few years.Not only did her marriage collapse, but both of her parents died too - and her torment took place against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic.However the resilient star has insisted that "there is life afterwards".Recently, it emerged that Fern split from her first husband Clive Jones after he was enraged that she had sailed through an IQ test and he hadn't.Fern reported that the explosive row they had about her Mensa membership was the catalyst that caused her marriage to disintegrate.Talking on the Walking The Dog with Emily Dean podcast, she elaborated: "He had this degree and I don’t [so] I secretly went off and did the Mensa."I lied, I said I was going somewhere else, and it took a day to do this test.

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