THIS Morning star Fern Britton has appeared to make a dig at her ex Phil Vickery on Twitter after his new relationship with her best friend was revealed.
Her "innuendo" post comes after The Sun revealed TV chef Phil, 61, may have been dating her pal Lorraine Stanton, 58, for two years.
Photos of them snogging after a date in London were said to have shocked Fern, 65, who split from Phil in 2020.
Taking to Twitter last night, the popular presenter raved about a recipe she found in one of Mary Berry's cook books.
Fern typed: "Can’t beat @MaryBerrysFoods recipe for #CoqAuVin.
"Substituted onions for shallots and carrots for mushrooms @AuntBessies comfort dumplings popped on top. A supper drenched with innuendo."

Fern regularly met with her bosom buddy Lorraine until late 2020, when they abruptly ended social media contact.
At the same time, Fern suggested it is “easier to forgive your enemies than your friends” in a Twitter post.
That was eight months after announcing her split from Phil.
Lorraine’s husband Simon, when asked about snaps of her snogging Phil in The Sun, said: “I don’t know when I’ll be in a position to speak to my wife about them.
