Following reports that her marriage to Grant Bovey is in crisis, Anthea Turner has broken her silence and said she is “devastated”.

The presenter, whose career includes stints on 'Blue Peter' and 'GMTV', married the property developer 12 years ago.

In a statement released today, she said she was “heartbroken and devastated” but refused to comment further.

The couple are spending time apart after reports Bovey had an affair while she was filming in Canada.

Turner, who has also had stints on reality shows including 'Celebrity Big Brother' and 'Hell’s Kitchen', talked several years ago about the financial pressures she and Bovey had faced.

The one-time TV golden girl had to sell her £10m (€12.8m) estate Barbins Grange in 2009 and a year later Bovey was declared bankrupt after the collapse of his property company Imagine Homes.
