Who is Anthea Turner?
Anthea Millicent Turner was born on May 25th 1960 in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

Sadly, Ruth died at the young age of fifteen as she faced complications from a spinal defect.
Anthea and Wendy, however, grew up to become two familiar faces we know and love on television today.
Anthea’s private life had always been the talk of the tabloids, as she does have a pretty interesting love life.

You better settle for some juicy gossip…
The blonde beauty dated former co-worker Bruno Brookes, who she then later dumped to marry manager and former DJ Peter Powell. The pair got married in 1990 and separated in 1998.
A year later, Turner found herself living with Imagine Homes CEO, Grant Bovey, and it was a complex relation, to say the least.
Bovey left Della, his wife, to move in with Turner. Suddenly, he reconciled with Della, leaving Turner again for his ex, only for him to return again to Turner.
The couple marries (finally) in 2000 but the rollercoaster ride did not stop there as they split in 2012 after Bovey’s extramarital affairs came to light.
Anthea Turner Before Instagram
The TV presenter’s transition into television was through presenting live music programmes for Sky Channel and Music Box.
Anthea presented Blue Peter, the children’s TV show from 1992 to 1994 and was also associated with the exercise system by the London YMCA called ‘The Y Plan’.
If you’re a fan of the lotto, then that’s probably where you’ve thought you’ve seen her before. Turner hosted the very first BBC National Lottery draw in 1994 alongside Noel Edmonds and Gordon Kennedy.
The hard working presenter also presented for GMTV from 1994 to 1996 but her relationship with co-presenter Eamonn Holmes was not particularly warm and fuzzy.
Their unfriendliness even led up to Turner losing her job after Holmes threatened to leave GMTV if Turner was not fired.
For some reason he wasn’t really fond of her, often describing her with unfavourable adjectives like “unbearable” and “horrid”.
It was the time when Turner’s rocky relationship with Imagine Homes CEO Grant Bovey started having a negative effect on her career.
Fools Rush In, her autobiography only sold 451 copies in the first week of release in 2000.
Turner made attempts to review her career including presenting alongside her sister Wendy on BBC’s Your Kids Are In Charge.
