Fern has maintained that their split was amicable but added it was a “sad” situation.
The star said: “We separated at the beginning of the year and fortunately it’s all smooth.
“We just came to the end of the road, you know, which is sad.”
Fern also commented in reference to life in lockdown with her two daughters Winnie 18, and Grace, 23: “I’ve been adjusting to life as just me to think about.
“It’s a time for me to really adjust my existence, which on the one hand is really quite exciting, but you’ve also got to process it for a while.”
