Stars pay tribute to Radio 1 presenter Fearne Cotton

By Shereen Low

Presenter Fearne Cotton has presented her last show for Radio 1 with the help of famous friends including Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Foo Fighters and Coldplay.

Cotton (33) is stepping down after almost 10 years at the helm of the station's mid-morning show for "family and new adventures", after she revealed she was pregnant with her second baby in February.

"This is honestly the weirdest day ever," she said as the broadcast began. Many of the artists Cotton championed over the years sent their best wishes. Sheeran tweeted: "Lots of love to @Fearnecotton and all the support she's given me and so many others on @BBCR1. You are the bestest evah."
