AT times like this we pare a thought for Della. The Sun repots that Anthea Turner is“ heartbroken over allegations that her husband Grant Bovey, 50, has been having sex with a 24-year-old.

Anthea, 52, is said to have told a friend: “I’m devastated, but the support of Grant’s daughters is keeping me going.”

A source said: “She is going through a hellish time and keeps crying on the phone. She needs a bit of space to think and clear her head.”

As Anorak readers know, Bovey and Turner married in 2000 after Grant split with his wife, the aforesaid “poor” Della. Bovey was famous for lending his name to a colour “(Bovey (adj) An orangey-brown colour. As in, “That meat looks off. It’s gone a horrible bovey colour”),  fighting Ricky Gervais in a TV boxing match and dumping wife Della Bovey for TV’s Miss Sunshine, Anthea Turner, with whom he’d been having an affair. Turner was the wife of Bovey’s friend Peter Powell, the Radio 1 DJ. In 2000, TV’s Golden Girl wrote the autobiography, Fools Rush In, which outlined her perfect life and revealed that “in 1988 Grant had a brush with stardom when he released a single called Don’t Turn Your Back”.

The tabloids lapped it up when Della embarked on a public campaign to win her husband back, which included appearing at the same public events as Turner and Bovey. He returned to their family home but the rapprochement lasted only a few months. He would go back to Turner. When they married in 2000, the rights wer sold to OK! magazine, which featured the pair tucking into Cadbury’s chocolate bars.
