FERN Britton’s best friend has revealed her marriage is over after she was pictured kissing Fern’s ex-husband Phil Vickery.
Moments earlier they emerged together on to the street with their overnight bags.
Lorraine has now broken her silence on the kissing snaps and admitted she’s moved out of the home she shares with husband Simon and their two kids.
The 58-year-old said: “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.”
She continued to tell MailOnline: “We are going through a grieving period as a family, and I’ve also just lost my step father. My children are feeling very vulnerable, and they are very upset about the whole situation.”
Lorraine’s husband, who lived with her in a stunning £1million country home in Windermere, مضاف: “I don’t know when I’ll be in a position to speak to my wife about them. I’m not at home and the moment and neither is my wife; she hasn’t been there for a while.”
Phil enjoyed a romantic walk with Lorraine before they disappeared into a plush Mayfair property as they were spotted looking loved-up in the capital.
A pal told The Sun: “They look like teenagers in love and that will be just so hurtful for Fern.
“Behaving this way in public will feel like a betrayal.”
Hospitality worker Lorraine — who has been bosom buddies with TV presenter Fern for decades — rose onto her toes to lock lips with Phil.
They enjoyed a long embrace before reluctantly going their separate ways.
