Fearne Cotton is broadcasting her last-ever Radio 1 Show after being a mainstay on the airwaves for ten years - and we’re feeling pretty emosh about it all (so we can’t imagine how Fearne’s feeling!)

The Celebrity Juice regular, who is pregnant with her second child with husband Jesse Wood, will hand over the reigns to Clara Amfo later this morning as she begins her maternity leave. According to Fearne her last week will be totally 'dreadful' filled with lots of tears. Poor love, but there's a new bundle of joy on it's way, yay.

"This week's been really daunting. I've been excited, but also dreading it at the same time. I've invested emotionally in my job so much because I love it here.” She added: “It's weird and surreal. I can't even really believe it's happening. There's going to be loads of tears. Loads."

Fearne first announced that she would be step down from the role in February, when she announced her pregnancy on her website, writing at the time: “Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having another baby. I feel extremely blessed and happy that Rex will be a big brother, and we get to welcome another Wood into the world.

“It has also been a time of big decisions and one I want to share with you now. After much time and careful thought I have decided to leave Radio 1 after ten amazing years… I would like to thank Radio 1 for being such a great home and most of all to the listeners who have been on this journey with me. It’s such a kick to know you heard a band on my show first, or that the songs I’ve played have helped you through the day, so thank you.”

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old also revealed that far from putting her feet up, she’ll be having a busy time over the next few months: "In my head I like to think I'll be having breakfast in bed. I won't be. I'll be running around with my two-year-old who'll be having his usual morning tantrum.” Naaaw. Love ya Fearne!
