Television presenter Fern Britton has appealed for help to find her engagement ring after leaving it in a Brixham toilet.

Former This Morning host Fern was filming Antiques Road Trip on Tuesday when she lost the ring, which was given to her from chef husband Phil Vickery. She last remembers seeing it in the bathrooms at Saxty's restaurant in Quay Street.

It is described as white metal with a single diamond, and two little bumps inside the band to stop it from spinning on my finger.
