Sunning it

Anthea Turner and Grant Bovey move on (yet again)

 

To most, both “sunrise” and “sundown” are beautiful spectacles. For Anthea Turner, these are words she’d probably rather forget.

53-year old Turner, who split from her 51-year old on-off husband Grant Bovey in June after discovering he’d revived an affair with a 25-year old socialite named Zoe de Mallet Morgan, was pictured in the Mail Online yesterday with 52-year old businessman Richard Farleigh, best known for his appearance on Dragons’ Den. In the same article, the paper mentioned that Turner  – whose Twitter handle reads “26 years a Telly Tart” – had put her marital home on the market for £5,500,000.

Turner bought the “Sir Edwin Lutyens inspired” property, in what estate agents Gascoigne-Pees call “one of Esher’s premier private roads”, for £4,300,000 in April 2011 after selling her previous home, ‘Sundown’, at an asking price of £5,750,000 in the wake of her husband’s bankruptcy. Plainly expecting better times, the television presenter and her businessman husband named the new build property, whose address is 37 Meadway, ‘Sunrise’.

 

‘Sunrise’ “sits” on a 1.5 acre plot and was supposedly “designed for living and entertaining on a grand scale”. It featured on ITV’s Daybreak in March this year when Turner shared a tour of it with viewers in which she stated:

 

“Home for me is everything. It’s my rock, it’s my foundation, it’s my springboard. If base camp is good then I can go and rule the world”.

 

Sadly for the presenter, plainly this wasn’t to be. Equally an image of the 8,200 square foot property featuring a poster bearing the words: “Time to drink champagne and dance on the table” don’t seem quite right given what has occurred in the time since.

Prior to that, the couple lived at Barbins Grange, Chiddingfold Road, Dunsfold, Godalming Surrey, GU8 4PB from 1999. It was sold to a "self-exiled" Russian tycoon named Evgeny Chichvarkin in 2009.

Having had to tolerate watching the demise of Bovey’s business empire, downsize from an £11 million mansion and most recently his latest affair, another of Turner’s comments to Daybreak though, now seems especially relevant. We imagine the ex Blue Peter host is now wishing she’d applied another description she made – “Have nothing in your houses that you know not to be useful” (made in reference to decoration) – to her relationship rather than ‘Sunrise’.

 

As the sun sets on the Bovey-Turner marriage, we’ve got a suggestion for a lady once dubbed ‘Princess Tippy Toes’ by Eamonn Holmes: Maybe it’s time to unite with Sir David Frost and Loyd Grossman. Given Turner claims to be “quite good at putting homes together” and “mixing old and new”, she could be just the person to join with them to revive Through the Keyhole.
