Xtra Factor host Fearne Cotton has revealed that she has gone teetotal.
And it’s not just a New Year’s resolution – the 26-year-old presenter gave up alcohol three months ago and says she’s never felt better.
“I wasn’t a big drinker before so I found it quite easy to give up completely – and now I feel bloody brilliant,” she revealed to Company magazine.
And Fearne said she would love to give troubled star Britney Spears some help cleaning up her act.
“I feel sorry for her – the old trout lips and no hair!” she said.
“I do want her to get better. She could come and live with me and be sober forever. She needs Mama Cotton to look after her.”
Fearne previously dated Fame Academy contestant Peter Brame, who admitted smoking crack.
She said: “That was a weird time. I met someone I really liked, who was into something I wasn’t. That’s why it didn’t work out between us. It’s not like I was never naughty – I’d go to gigs and get three hours’ sleep – but then I’d panic as I had to go to work the next day.”
While she has given up the alcohol, she won’t be changing what she eats.
“I’ve seen pop stars on really strict diets and you can’t help but wonder how they do it. I find it so sad. I’d rather be happy and have a little pot belly than be skinny and miserable,” she said.
And Fearne couldn’t be happier at the moment – she’s currently loved up with American boyfriend Jesse Jenkins.
