FERN Britton put on a brave face yesterday as she was spotted for the first time since pictures emerged of her best pal snogging her ex-husband.
Lorraine yesterday confirmed her marriage is over and she has moved out of the home she shared with her husband Simon and their two children.
她说: “It’s a difficult time for me and the family. I don’t actually live in the marital home anymore and it’s got nothing to do with the latest incident over the pictures.”
Pals told how Fern was determined to “carry on as usual” despite the shock pictures.
But other reports yesterday suggested she was “heartbroken”.
一位消息人士告诉 MailOnline: “Fern finds the situation weird and awkward. She’s struggling to process her mixed emotions.
“On the one hand she had felt like she’d moved on from Phil, but she hadn’t expected this.”
We told yesterday how the duo had passionately locked lips and hugged while emerging from a property with overnight bags.
The Sun can reveal TV chef Phil, 61, may have been dating Lorraine, 58, for two years.
Fern regularly met with her bosom buddy until late 2020, when they abruptly ended social media contact.
同时, Fern suggested it is “easier to forgive your enemies than your friends” in a 推特 邮政.
That was eight months after announcing her split from Phil.
Until that point, Lorraine had been prolific in her public support of Fern and Phil.
Her online messages with Phil became increasingly flirty. 在五月 2017 she publicly said: “Missing you Phil.”
Throughout her gushing messages, Windermere-based Lorraine was still supporting her pal Fern.
在七月 2018, Lorraine replied to a picture Fern posted: “Looking stunning Mrs.”
Lorraine’s husband Simon, when asked about the snaps in The Sun, 说: “I don’t know when I’ll be in a position to speak to my wife about them.
“I’m not at home at the moment and neither is my wife. She hasn’t been for a while.”
Phil remained silent yesterday.
