The day has sadly arrived to wave goodbye to Fearne Cotton, who leaves Radio 1 today after almost ten years on the station. OH DON’T GO FEARNY.

We’ll miss you, love!

As it turns out, the 33-year-old’s emotions got the better of her before she even managed to leave the house today, and it’s all thanks to her adorable little son Rex.

Taking to Twitter, she revealed: “My son just looked at my rather over the top dress I’m wearing today and said ” mummy princess” Tears have started before I leave the house.”


#FarewellFearne (errr, yeah, does sound a bit like she’s died, doesn’t it?).

The DJ has already been joined by showbiz guests in the first hour of her last show ever, with Kodaline turning up to play her a slightly remixed version of ‘The One’.

Oh GAHD. Someone get Fearny some tissues, stat.

Reggie Yates popped in to see his ‘TV and radio wife’, playing her a clip of her mad sick rapping skills from one of their first shows together.

The two started out at Radio 1 together, hosting the ridiculously early breakfast show at the ungodly hour of 4am.

She recently said: “I started with my good friend Reggie Yates (on Radio 1′s early breakfast show) and we were probably terrible. But we were out on at four in the morning and so the pressure wasn’t as big as it is these days.

“I remember fading up the fader and speaking for the first time and thinking ‘Oh My God’ people are actually listening.

“You still have a bit of that fear after all these years and that’s why it’s enjoyable.”

Reggie was also responsible for making Fearne cry for the first time on her last ever show, playing James Bay’s cover of ‘(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher’ and making her blub like a baby.

Oh Reggie, you meanie.

Celebs far and wide have been tweeting support for the mum-of-one, with Maroon 5 and Ed Sheeran all showing her some love:

And just about everybody else on Twitter too, but unfortunately we don’t have space for them all.

Errrr, anyone also subtly reaching for the tissues right now? IT’S ALL TOO MUCH FOR A FRIDAY.

Have a glorious last day, Fearne, and we really will miss you!

Clara Amfo will be taking over the show from next week. Good luck!
