Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton, ended her engagement with fiance Jesse Jenkins. They started dating the US skateboarder in 2006 and got engaged last September on Fearne’s 29th birthday.
An amicable split, a spokesperson for Cotton explained she is very sad about the split but she is eager to remain friends.
It is understood that no one else is involved in the split, with a friend explaining: “It just wasn’t meant to be. The same problems that were there ¬before were still there and once the ring was on Fearne’s finger.”
Fearne has admitted in the past that she was hoping to follow in the footsteps of her best friend Holly Willoughby’s path and have a family of her own one day. “It’s about finding a life partner who’s your best friend. What’s the point of doing great things at work if you don’t have someone to share it with?”
