Fern Britton shares a glimpse of her 'flipping freezing' Boxing Day beach walk with kids

She had a devastating time between 2018 and 2020, with her beloved mother Ruth dying, aged 94, in April 2018.

Declaring her “funny and ferocious”, and “a woman you couldn’t forget”, Fern revealed at the time that her courageous mum had been an army sergeant in World War II.

She planted some broad beans in tribute to her, despite acknowledging that she had “never touched veg in her life”.

No sooner had she started grieving for her mum, Fern sadly lost her father Tony just three days before Christmas in 2019.
