While in Cornwall, Fern also finished writing her ninth novel, Daughters of Cornwall, which is set to be published on 11 June. The mother-of-four wrote the final few pages of her book earlier in the month, revealing on social media that she had completed the book at 2.30am. The star admitted last weekend that she was feeling under pressure to get the book finished as it was already behind schedule, as the original publish date was in February, rather than June. She tweeted: "Almost finished book 9, Daughters of Cornwall! A bit late because been slightly under the cosh. Reminding myself that life is for living. Might get some pics tomorrow of Atlantic Breakers as Storm Ciara blows in. If I don't get knocked off the cliff I'll post them."

Fern has been supported by her fans over the past few weeks following the news that she had separated from her husband of 20 years, Phil Vickery. The pair both issued a statement at the beginning of February, announcing that they were going their separate ways, but that they were to remain friends. It read: "After more than 20 happy years together, Phil and I have decided to go our separate ways. We will always share a great friendship and our lovely children. We would appreciate it if our privacy is respected at this time. Thank you for your continued kindness and support."
