British entertainer, admired for her fresh and infectious sunny nature that hides a steely determination and an obsession with perfection. Turner's work began with the AA Breakdown service before she starting doing traffic news at a local radio station. Turner segued to satellite TV and from there into children's TV, "Up2U," and from September 1992 through June 1994, she hosted "Blue Peter." While working each morning on GMTV program, she also was the presenter for the National Lottery show from its inception.

She left the morning show 24 DECEMBER 1996 and has since been contracted with other TV programs and a well-known mail-order catalog. Turner has also produced her own line of fitness videos.

In 1978 her 18-year-old sister Ruth lost a fifteen-year battle with spina bifida.

After her long relationship with fellow Stoke resident and one-time DJ co-worker Bruno Brookes, she married her manager Peter Powell in 1990; the couple divorced in 1998. The same year Turner moved in with the CEO of Imagine Homes, Grant Bovey. Bovey left his wife, Della, to move in with Turner; he reconciled with Della, before leaving her again to return to Turner. Turner and Bovey married on 23 August 2000. On 23 February 2009, the Daily Mail reported that their Surrey mansion had been put up for sale owing to catastrophic failures in Bovey's buy-to-let property business. Turner and Bovey briefly split up in 2012, due to Bovey's extramarital affair. In January 2013, Turner was quoted as saying: "Last year was awful, horrible, one of the worst. But at the end of the day Grant is my future, my soulmate." On 12 June 2013, Turner confirmed that she and Bovey had agreed to go their separate ways. Within weeks, Turner started dating millionaire and former Dragons' Den star Richard Farleigh. Turner announced, on 24 August 2014, that she and Farleigh had split after 12 months and that she is now single.
