Last night, pictures of Phil Vickery kissing Fern Britton’s friend Lorraine Stanton, 58, were shared online by The Sun. A source later said that the ex This Morning presenter would be “dumbstruck” by the snaps.

Now, Lorraine has broken her silence on the situation.

While she didn’t address the pictures directly or confirm whether or not she’s dating Phil, the hospitality worker said she was going through a “grieving period”. 

She said: “It’s a difficult time for me and the family.

“I don’t actually live in the marital home anymore and it’s got nothing to do with the latest incident over the pictures,” she added to the Daily Mail online.

Lorraine went on to say that she had also recently lost her stepdad, adding they were “grieving”.

“My children are feeling very vulnerable, and they are very upset about the whole situation.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a represenative for Phil and Fern for comment. 

The hospitality worker is said to have been friends with the ex couple for a number of years.

On Wednesday, she and the chef were seen leaning over a suitcase for a kiss following a date in London.

She reportedly stayed at his flat in the capital the night before.

Today, Fern sparked confusion after tweeting that the story isn’t true, despite the pictures.

The author may have been referring to reports that she is “heartbroken and dumbstruck” by it all.

At present, she is still following Lorraine on Twitter.

A source went on to say that Fern finds the situation “weird and awkward”.

“She’s shocked and is struggling to process her mixed emotions. On the one hand she had felt like she’d moved on from Phil but she hadn’t expected this new romance and it’s been hard to see,” they added.

Fern and Phil parted ways back in January 2020, telling fans they had a “happy” marriage.

In an interview back in July, the ex This Morning host said she was in no rush to meet anyone new.

She told Prima Magazine: “If someone came along who was lovely and kind and we didn’t have to live together – if he had his life and I had mine – that might be perfect.

“But on the other hand, life is pretty b****y perfect right now and I’m happy with my company, so meeting someone would simply be icing on the cake.”

Fern and Phil share 21-year-old daugther Winnie together.

She also has three other children, including twins, with her ex-husband Clive Jones.
