Anthea Turner's Comments About Having Sex In Your 50s Are Utterly Fabulous

Preach 🙌

We don’t hear much of Anthea Turner these days, but when she does pop up, she normally has something fabulous to say, and her latest comments are no exception.  

The former ‘Blue Peter’ presenter has spoken out about destigmatising attitudes towards older women having sex, admitting she still “loves a shag”.

Anthea was married to Grant Bovey for 13 years before their split in 2013, and went on to date ‘Dragon’s Den’ tycoon Richard Farleigh for a few months after. 

She was last seen on the hunt for love on a celebrity episode of ‘First Dates’, but the Channel 4 show ultimately failed to help her find ‘The One’. 

Last year, she revealed plans to use her difficult divorce from Grant to help others by writing a self-help book. 

She told The Mirror at the time: “It’s very different getting divorced in your 50s than it is in your 20s or 30s. I think you deal with it very differently.

“You need to know the light is on at the end of the tunnel, sometimes you think it’s gone off and everyone has forgotten you.
