Fern Britton began her TV career in the South West of England reading local news bulletins for both the BBC and Westward Television's nightly show "Westward Diary". During the mid 1980s, she read the national news on the BBC's Breakfast Time and occasionally presented on the sofa with Frank Bough. This was followed by a move to TVS to co-present the South edition of Coast to Coast with Fred Dinenage. Whilst at TVS Fern co-presented the networked "Airport 90" programmes with Nick Owen, and she teamed up with Fred Dineage again to present the last ever TV programme in the TVS region, "Goodbye to all That", on 31st December 1992.

From TVS, she switched to become entertainment corespondent for London Tonight instead, on the LWT and Carlton regions. This post was short-lived, for Fern shortly moved to GMTV, and then to BBC2 as host of the popular Ready Steady Cook made by Bazal Productions. Since September 1999, she has been presenting This Morning. While Richard and Judy were still in residence, she was the Friday guest host with John Leslie, but the pair became main presenters in 2001 following R+J's departure to Channel Four. In 2002 her co-presenter became Phillip Schofield.
