Anthea Turner has confirmed she has separated from husband Grant Bovey.

The couple, who famously posed with chocolate bars during their wedding, married in 2000.

TV presenter Anthea said: "I can confirm we have separated, I need time to consider my immediate plans and will be making no further comment at this time."

The pair initially split up last year after Anthea, whose career includes stints on 'Blue Peter' and 'GMTV', reportedly discovered Grant had an affair while she was filming in Canada.

They got back together and appeared to have put their rocky patch behind them, appearing in public at the world premiere of the Rolling Stones film 'Crossfire Hurricane'.

Anthea, who has also had stints on reality shows including 'Celebrity Big Brother', 'Hell's Kitchen' and, most recently, 'Dancing On Ice', talked several years ago about the financial pressures she and Grant faced.

The one-time TV golden girl had to sell her £10 million estate Barbins Grange in 2009 and a year later Grant was declared bankrupt after the collapse of his property company Imagine Homes.
