Clara Amfo to replace Fearne Cotton on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge as she leaves to have a baby

Double congratulations are in order after Fearne Cotton announced she is expecting her second baby with husband Jesse Woods. The 33 year old also stated she would be leaving the radio station, where she’s worked for the past 10 years.

Cotton made the announcement on her website, posting that although she’s had an amazing time at the station, it was now time ‘for a new chapter’.

“Jesse and I are very happy to announce we are having another baby,” She said.

“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.”

Following the announcement, current Official Chart Show host Clara Amfo has been announced as her replacement. Amfo has barely recovered from all the excitement after landing the role at the end of 2014, but she seemed to be handling this new exciting news very calmly.
