Fern Britton's cryptic 'dig' at ex-husband Phil Vickery after sharing kiss with her pal


Fern Britton, 63, took to Twitter and lauded a Mary Berry recipe for Coq Au Vin as she shared a photo from the cooking book on Sunday. But when a social media user took aim at her former partner's television show appearance in Ready, Steady, Cook, the former This Morning presenter could not resist liking the post.

Taking to the micro-blogging site on October 9, Fern penned: "Can’t beat @MaryBerrysFoods recipe for #CoqAuVin.

"Substituted onions for shallots and carrots for mushrooms. @AuntBessies comfort dumplings popped on top. A supper drenched with innuendo."

Social media user, Andy Morgan replied: "Puts Ready, Steady Cook into the shade, doesn't it, Fern..."

The former couple had met on the set of the BBC show over two decades ago.

The ex-This Morning presenter took the opportunity to like the post, in view of her 122,000 followers.

Fern's post comes after pictures emerged of her ex-husband Phil seemingly kissing her best friend Lorraine Stanton.

The snaps emerged, just two years after the former couple's divorce, with Fern's pal Lorraine even enjoying a girl's trip with the former This Morning presenter four months prior to her split with Phil.

Phil was pictured in a public embrace with a woman, who is reportedly very close friends with Fern.

Fern has since taken to Twitter to share her thoughts and to set the record straight on what happened.

"Let’s start again in the morning. Tomorrow may have small good things in it."

It comes after Fern took the opportunity to pay tribute to her late father, Tony Britton.

Sharing a screenshot of a theatre article, she penned: "Almost to the day, 43 years ago, a revival of My Fair Lady opened in London. My father reprising the role of Professor Higgins. (He played it in the 60’s when Rex Harrison went to Hollywood to make the movie) To me, Tony Britton is the finest Higgins ever!"

Julian Clary replied: "And I was an usher at the Adelphi selling programmes and ice creams. He was wonderful."

Ken Bruce commented: "I agree. Saw him and interviewed him on the subsequent tour. What a lovely man!"

Fans echoed a similar sentiment, as Aidy wrote: "I remember your marvellous daddy Tony in this role... he made it his character. The natural charisma of your dad shone through."

Andrea agreed: "Your father had such a wonderful voice, I love listening to him narrating Dick Francis books and I listen to them more than once."

British actor Tony, who was best known for his roles in Don't Wait Up and Robin's Nest, died in 2019.
