Anthea Turner To Use Difficult Divorce To Help Others With New Book

'It's very different getting divorced in your 50s than it is in your 20s or 30s'.

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.

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.
