Friends’ fears for Anthea

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

FRIENDS wor­ried Anthea Turner would com­mit sui­cide af­ter Grant Bovey cheated on her.

The TV favourite’s world fell apart when her hus­band’s af­fair with Zoe De Mal­let Mor­gan was ex­posed in 2012.

In a new in­ter­view, Anthea said: “I was an emo­tional mess, a wreck. We de­cided to not throw it all away.

“My good­ness me, I thought we had done ev­ery­thing to look at this, make it right. Hours and hours of con­ver­sa­tion and talk.”

Just a year later Anthea hit rock bot­tom when it emerged Grant had se­cretly con­tin­ued the fling.

Speak­ing on TV se­ries In Ther­apy, Anthea, 57, said: “I ac­tu­ally think that was worse, the sec­ond time, than it was the first.”

Best friend Chris Rogers added: “I have never seen Anthea so low, so heart­bro­ken and so dev­as­tated. I’ll be hon­est, I wor­ried she was go­ing to take her life.”

Anthea was strug­gling to cope but re­al­ity TV gave her a life­line.

Just months later she was back on Chan­nel 4’s win­ter sports show The Jump, which she says helped her.

In Ther­apy is on Fri­day at 10pm on Chan­nel 5.

A STAR Wars toy has been sent to the edge of space by sci­en­tists.

A team launched a BB8 droid from the sci-fi movies 37,260m into the sky.

Cat­a­logue store Ar­gos plot­ted the space stunt as it brings a new range of Star Wars: The Last Jedi toys to the shelves ahead of Christ­mas.
