Fearne feared love over after Jesse

Fearne Cotton has said she feared she would never find love after splitting from ex-fiance Jesse Jenkins.

The TV and radio presenter told Cosmopolitan that she hit "rock bottom" when her engagement failed around the time of the royal wedding in 2011.

She said: "My rock bottom moment was probably a failed engagement when I was 29. That felt pretty c**p. It was around the time of the royal wedding so there was this big thing about marriage everywhere, but my life was the opposite of that.

"I thought, 'Oh, that's me then. I'm not going to meet anyone now.' Plus, I've always wanted kids so I started to think, 'Should I adopt one day?'."

But Fearne then met partner Jesse Wood through a mutual friend and now has baby son Rex with the son of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie.

She said: "What you don't know at the time is that as one door closes, another opens - and soon after, I met the love of my life and got to have a baby. Jesse and I met through a friend who works in a restaurant in Ibiza and we just clicked.

"I don't think there's anything you can really pinpoint when it happens like that. I'd been in love before, but this was different. He makes me laugh, and he balances me out... he makes me laugh all the time and he's so chilled out.

"He's been to hell and back in certain ways, so nothing fazes him; he takes it all with a pinch of salt."
