Anne first found to fame in the early s, when she was head-hunted by TV-am to help rescue their flagging breakfast show following a stint at the BBC. She presented the programme with Nick Owen for seven years. But she was also savaged in the press for her relationship with her married boss TV executive Mike Hollingsworth. Then there was a national outcry when she dared to get pregnant with their first child Oliver before they had married. It was an experience that left her with an acute understanding of any woman who finds herself in love with a married man. Then Hollingsworth had an affair with radio presenter Harriet Scott and Anne went from being the other woman to the wronged wife. Mortality rates were slashed in months and experts believed her crusade could have now saved 20, babies.
