Fearne Cotton Explains Why She Left BBC Radio 1

Fearne Cotton has been speaking about exactly why she decided to leave her show on BBC Radio 1.

The fab presenter bowed out of the station in May to focus on motherhood, with her show being taken over by the equally-as-fab Clara Amfo.


Explaining why she decided to step down, Fearne told The Telegraph: “It felt like the right time to change things up.
