I can't help but feel sorry for her but if I am honest, I also think "well you should have expected it". He has a talent for moving on to someone younger/richer etc....what a cad!

Thing is, Della and now Anthea both really loved him despite his failings - I pity any female he is involved with.

I'll be the first to say it "when you marry the mistress, you create a vacancy".

He sounds like a horrible little man.

yes a horrible little man who was perfectly matched with Anthea, apologies if she is here.

Can't believe it's been 13 years since "flake-gate"!

Shouldn't this be in Sleb Twaddle? Just sayin'.

Tis actually in the news though Young. grin

No sympathy. What did she expect. She took another womans husband. What did she think he was like?

bkgirl Wed 12-Jun-13 13:51:36

True and the tussle with Della was dreadful.

Who gives a monkey's?

Mintyy Wed 12-Jun-13 14:12:56

I thought they split up ages ago???

ItsintheBag Wed 12-Jun-13 14:16:30

He is a shit of the highest order I bet she thought she was the one to change him.

I am no huge fan but you can't take someones husband.He cheated on his wife, and she cheated on her husband...and it seems Della went on to do the same with her next DH.
Their poor kids.

Tabloid fodder, slebs shag/marry/divorce each other on a continuos carousel anyway.

I feel sorry for Bovey's dds. They were clearly very keen on AT and apparently convinced her to give him another chance.

I once met AT at Legoland, during an event for Downs Syndrome UK. She gave a load of her time free gratis, and I don't think there was any publicity about it outside of the DSUK community. I've always remembered that about her and liked her for it.

That was before flakegate.

I believe she had a sister who possibly had Downs, or something similar, but who died. I would imagine that helping such charities is particularly close to her heart.

I'm not her biggest fan, and he looks an absolute arse, but I did feel for her when I read that she'd been trying her hardest in recent months to be the perfect wife for him.

clam Thu 13-Jun-13 22:57:04

Sorry, not Downs, but spina bifida.

No sympathy after what they/she did to his original family. What did she expect?

Pancakeflipper Fri 14-Jun-13 10:30:59

I actually feel sorry for her. I think he convinced her that he was all that with jingly bells on. And actually he's what Poppy says a horrible self centred little man.

Though she should never have ditched Peter Powell. Now there's a man who held his dignity whilst Turner and Bovey were waltzing round the media when they first got together.

why on earth do these women fall for someone as odious as him?

yes a dm link.
dm now just seems to say mumsnetter, and doesnt feel the need to explain what a mumsnetter is anymore.

and Anthea Turner is not happy with mumsnetters.

clam Sat 15-Jun-13 12:38:25

Well, to be fair, Peter Powell might also have been an arse to live with. But I agree, he seemed to conduct himself with dignity and refrain from slagging her off in public.
