Earlier this week, Fern revealed she’d been in hospital. Uploading a snap to Insta, she said: “Morning all!! Shoulder replacement is done and a success. I can’t thank the staff at #StMichaels #NHS hospital in Hayle, Cornwall, enough. Such care and kindness. Back home, Barbara [Fern’s cat] is in her doctor’s uniform and attending to me constantly,” she continued. “Mostly telling me it’s time for her breakfast, elevenses, lunch, tea, supper…”

Fern added: “Thank you to my friends Jane, Two Cups, Double C and my lovely girls Grace and Winnie. I’m very lucky! See you soon. When I can train my left hand to put a bit of lippy on without looking like The Joker. And if you are in a similar situation I send my love,” she added.

Fans send support

Fern’s followers were quick to share their love and concern for the star.

One fan wrote: “Oh wish you a speedy recovery lovely.” “Hope you bounce back quickly lovely Fern! Thank goodness for friends and family xx,” wrote a second fan.

“Lots of love Fern for a speedy recovery,” added a third. While another commented: “Hope you’re soon back to 100%.”

A fourth fan expressed how she had the same surgery and wished Fern had a quick recovery. “Had surgery there years ago and couldn’t have asked for better treatment. Hope it’s a quick recovery.” “Bless you, Fern, take it easy! Glad it’s gone well, you are now bionic like me and my left hip,” wrote a fifth optimistic fan.

Fern waited months for the surgery to happen

She told Woman & Home last year: “I’ve got arthritis settling in everywhere. My knee is really bad and so is my shoulder. I’m waiting on a list for a surgeon to sort it out. It’s very boring when your body starts to be in pain all the time,” she said.

“First physio today on new shoulder,” she said. “Thinking of everyone else going through this life improving routine.”

One fan also asked Fern if she had any tips for people waiting for the same op. With her trademark humour she commented: “Loose waist leggings and knickers!”
