Anthea Turner has revealed that her troublesome divorce has inspired her to write a self-help book, in a bid to console people going through similar difficulties.

Back in 2013, Anthea and her husband Grant Bovey split up after 13 years of marriage, and were eventually granted a divorce last October.

She now explains that her “awful” divorce process has inspired her to help others.

The newspaper had initially quoted her as saying she'd "learned so much" on her "slave journey" of divorce, but she has since taken to Twitter to insist this was not the case: 

Shortly after splitting from Grant, Anthea admitted that the stress was affecting her health, telling Hello! Magazine: The lack of sleep was the worst part. I slept for only about three hours a night as my mind was racing all the time and I just couldn’t switch off.

Since her divorce, Anthea appeared on a celebrity edition of dating show ‘First Dates’, looking for romance alongside fellow stars Alexandra Burke and Jorgie Porter.
