Anthea Turner appeared on today's show

Anthea Turner appeared on today's show, and she opened up about the pain of divorce in her fifties.

She's writing a book about her experiences and what she did to cope.

"One of my big points in this book is, you should never see this as a weakness, to be decent, to let go. All those things. Have all those conversations with your friends, talk to the mirror, but be true to the real you, not the you who is raging. Don't make decisions after the third glass of wine. It's not going to help."

The whole interview is available at the ITV Hub.
