Bev Turner, the wife of Olympic gold medalist James Cracknell, is now well-known in her own right.
Since the couple’s break announcement, the TV host has established a career at GB News.
Who is Bev Turner?
Beverley Turner is a television and radio host, as well as an author.
She was born in Prestwich, Lancashire, on October 21, 1973.
She has written for publications such as The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, and The Daily Mail in addition to her job as a broadcaster.
She is also the sister of Olympic swimmer Adrian Turner and executive producer of The Apprentice Cal Turner.
What shows has Beverly Turner presented?
From 2015 to 2019, Beverley hosted a two-hour Saturday evening show on LBC.
Previously, she hosted BBC Radio 5 Live’s Bump Club series, which focused on a pregnant woman’s path to childbirth.
Bev has previously worked for the Travel Channel and This Morning, as well as hosting ITV’s Formula One coverage.
Bev Turner has had her own weekday show, Bev Turner Today, on GB News since 2022.
Is Bev Turner married and does she have children?
Bev married Olympic star James Cracknell in 2002, and the couple has three children: Coryde, Kiki, and Trixie.
However, the pair announced their divorce in April 2019.
Following James’ horrific bike tragedy in 2010, which left him with serious brain impairments, the couple had previously discussed marital troubles.
The Olympian described how the traumatic incident left him with epilepsy, a changed demeanor, and a short temper.
Bev and James even collaborated on a book about his terrifying collision, Touching Distance.
At the time of their split, they released a short statement, which said: “We can confirm that sadly we separated last year.
“Together, we remain committed to our amazing children, they are our absolute priority.”
James added that he and Beverley did everything to make their relationship work out.
But he commented: “We’re also, as any couple is, different people from who you were 17 years ago and we can look back and say we did everything.”
Bev has since begun a new relationship with a man named James Pritchett.
In September 2019, The Sun announced exclusively that she had found love again with the eco-housing project developer.
A mutual friend met the couple, and a source told us, “It’s still pretty new, but both Bev and James number two are really happy.”
“He’s a lovely man, and the two share many interests.” He’s met almost all of her friends, and they all think he’s great.”
James has also moved on with his new wife Jordan Connell, whom he is set to marry in 2021.
