Anthea Turner has confirmed she has split from her husband of 13 years Grant Bovey, amid claims the couple have been embroiled in a ‘series of rows’ over recent months.
The 53-year-old presenter, who briefly split from her 51-year-old property developer spouse last year following his ‘friendship’ with a twenty-something socialite, said in a statement that she now needs ‘time to consider my immediate plans’.
She said: ‘I can confirm we have separated , I need time to consider my immediate plans and will be making no further comment at this time.’
While no official reason was confirmed for the split, it’s believed that Anthea struggled to overcome what she had previously described as Grant’s ‘friendship’ with 25-year-old interior designer Zoe de Mallet Morga while she was away working in Canada.
A friend said ‘It’s over and Anthea is heartbroken. She had tried to make it work but what happened last year was always hanging over them.
‘She just doesn’t want to be with Grant anymore. As far as she is concerned he is not the man she fell in love with.’
