Fern Britton has revealed she’d love a TV acting role.

The former This Morning presenter said there had been talk of her moving into acting, but it has died down.

She told Woman’s Own magazine: “I’d love to be on Coronation Street or Spooks, yes, please! My acting came about because a friend wrote a sitcom for me. There was a lot of interest, and then it went quiet – and that’s probably the last we’ll hear of it!”

The 52-year-old confirmed that her decision to leave This Morning was ‘definitely’ the best move she’d made.

“I’ve enjoyed my life so much since and I don’t miss it at all. I was ready to leave,” she said.

She also said she’s happy with how her career is panning out since quitting the daytime programme.

“I’ve really enjoyed being at home more, tending to my garden and being with the children. It’s also been good to do different things,” she said.
