Fearne Cotton She’s back! New mum Fearne Cotton looks relaxed and refreshed as she returns to Radio 1Most new mums look exhausted when they return to work after maternity leave, with the combination of sleepless nights and getting up early for the daily commute taking its toll.

But DJ Fearne Cotton looked fresh and glowing, with her immaculate hair worn down around her face, and only a little make-up, for her first day back at Radio 1.

Despite the fact, Fearne had chosen an outfit with a baggy sweater, it was still obvious she has quickly shed her pregnancy pounds, perhaps thanks to a series of gym sessions she has tweeted about.

Motherhood has also not changed Fearne’s quirky sense of style. Along with her striped jumper, Fearne wore acid print leggings, which were turned up to show off Top Shop cat print socks and leopard print heels.

Fearne co-presented the breakfast show with Nick Grimshaw to ease her back into work after her eight-month absence from the airwaves, before returning to her usual 10am to 12.45pm slot.

The Celebrity Juice presenter gave birth to Rex in Feburary, her first child with her partner Jessie Wood, son of Rolling Stones legend Ronnie Wood.

And while, Fearne admitted looking after Rex was just as hard as being at work, she added: “A small person takes up a lot of time! But it’s amazing and I loved doing it. I’ve never had time off since I was 15 so it was really nice to go, ‘I have a life without work stuff’.

“It was brilliant but I’m ready to get back into work and I’m excited about the month we have coming up.”

Fearne’s birthday is on September 3, but she had already celebrated with a surprise birthday dinner planned by Jesse. It looks like Fearne is getting her work-life balance exactly right.
