'Fern is a survivor' Good Housekeeping
'A must-read . . . the mother of daytime TV opens up' Heat
'I defy anyone to read this and ultimately not to feel buoyed with optimism . . . in this hugely readable autobiography we are reminded of just why we love her' Jane Clinton, Sunday Express
'On the outside, I'd continue to smile . . .'
Everyone knows Fern Britton's dazzling smile, her infectious laugh, her warmth. But just who is the real Fern?
Straight from the heart, this is a life that every woman will be touched by. Fern's story is a rollercoaster of highs – having four children after the age of 36, meeting and marrying her gorgeous husband Phil Vickery – and terrible lows, from barely knowing her famous father as she grew up to crippling bouts of depression.
From tomboy to TV icon, Fern charts her journey with humour, honesty and optimism. She tells for the first time why she decided to have weight loss surgery, the cause of so much media controversy. She reveals life behind the scenes of some of the most popular shows on television. And at the heart of every page and every turn of Fern's complex life remain her precious family, so loved.
Mirroring her own inimitable personality, Fern: My Story is funny, outspoken, full of emotion, sometimes sad yet always inspirational.
