Today is the day Fearne Cotton leaves BBC Radio 1. And Twitter is not happy about it.


Fearne first graced the airwaves 10 years ago, hosting a (very) early R1 breakfast show with Reggie Yates and she's been a familiar voice on the station's mid-morning show since 2009. But now she's bidding farewell to have her second child and embark on new and exciting adventures.

As she hosts her final ever radio show, fans (famous and otherwise), chart-toppers and her fellow radio DJs have been sharing the love on Twitter, thanking her for her support over the years. There are some seriously impressive names, from Ed Sheeran and George Ezra to Kasabian and Lethal Bizzle. Just look at all these well wishers!

THANK YOU FEARNE! You hero! Good luck! #FarewellFearne X❤️

It seems everyone is sad to bid farewell to the DJ. It's going to be one hell of a leaving card!
