Anthea Turner to be granted quickie divorce

Anthea Turner is to be granted a quickie divorce.

The 55-year-old presenter has reportedly applied for her divorce from second husband Grant Bovey to be finalised at London's Central Family Court.

If the decree nisi is approved, their 15-year marriage will be over within six weeks, according to The Sun newspaper.

Anthea kicked Grant, 53, out of their £5 million home in Surrey after discovering he'd been having an affair.

The couple first got together in 1998 following Anthea's split from her first husband, DJ Peter Powell.

However, they split briefly when Grant rekindled his relationship with his wife Della - with whom he has three children - before tying the knot in the year 2000.

Meanwhile, Anthea recently appeared on a celebrity version of 'First Dates' as part of Channel 4's Stand Up to Cancer and enjoyed lunch with a 50-year-old man named Jeremy.

The former 'Blue Peter' presenter decided not to pursue a relationship with Jeremy, claiming he was too well-behaved and that she was putt off when she discovered he didn't like the taste of brown sauce.
