The former 'This Morning' host looks better than ever in a new photoshoot for Hello magazine, where she showed off her new 'Strictly' figure.
Fern admitted her performances on the show had enabled her to show people 'the real her'.
The presenter, who was voted off last month after dancing a steamy salsa with partner Artem Chigvintsev said: "You all think I'm mumsy, mumsy, but I'm not - that's the real me.
"I know how to have a good time, I like to be extrovert and I don't mind making a fool of myself."
She added: "I comfort myself with the feeling that the audience know me and that I'm prepared to have a go at things.
"I don't think they're ever shocked by anything that happens to me. I got such lovely messages saying, 'Go, girl'."
The 55-year-old also said that her attitude had impressed dance partner Artem.
"At the end, even Artem said, 'You've made me a better person', and gave me a big bunch of flowers," she said.
