Fern Britton has revealed she is in talks to return to This Morning after previously presenting alongside Phillip Schofield from 1999 to 2009. 

The 66-year-old star recently appeared on the sofa as a guest but now says she has been approached to do some films for the ITV daytime show.

Fern said of her guest appearance: "When my interview finished and I left the studio, I was approached by a production team [member] who said, 'Would you like to do some little films with us?'

“That conversation is yet to be had but those little four-minute films now and again? Perfect. Interviews would be the dream.

"I'd quite like to do something with politics. I'm not interested in party politics but politicians, and where the minds of those characters that we vote for are at.

"I don't mind what party they're up for, as long as they're speaking truly to the country to understand what's going on in the world, what a f***-up leaving Europe was and how they're desperately trying to cover up the terrible things that are happening because of that."
