Fern Britton’s My Cornwall is back on TV screens featuring breathtaking landscapes and people and things that make our county so unique and fascinating. The former This Morning presenter, moved to Cornwall in 2020, following her split from chef Phil Vickery.

After 20 years of marriage, the author started her life as a single woman in the Padstow area. It is not known exactly where she lives, however she is said to be enjoying a quieter life in Cornwall.

She is now showing off our county in the second season of her show called My Cornwall with Fern Britton. However, not everyone is liking the programme.

Some viewers interpreted the name of the show as Britton taking ownership of Cornwall, as opposed to her showing people her own version of Cornwall and what she loves about the county. Twitter user @greenpaulineuk wrote: “#mycornwall I think you should be doing #myealing? #fernbritton Never presume it’s your Cornwall – it’s not – thanks.” (sic)

@mr_chown added: “Fern Britton doing My Cornwall excuse me love you’re from London. #mycornwall.”

@Lost_In_Films_ tweeted: “Another new London relocater My Cornwall Fern Britton was born and lived around London, so not YOUR Cornwall. Now thanks to series likes this more relocaters and second home owners will want place in Cornwall, just what locals who can’t afford to live where they grew up need.”

Many people, however, showed support to the TV star and her show. Steve Markham wrote: “I’ve only been to Cornwall a few times so don’t know it that well but there’s no one better to show us what this beautiful county has than Fern Britton. What a delightful programme.”
