Fearne Cotton says she quit Celebrity Juice because she wants to 'feel a bit scared again'

‘I left on a bit of a high.’

LAST MONTH, fans of Celebrity Juice were dismayed to hear that Fearne Cotton had made the decision to leave the panel show after ten years.

After ten incredible years I am leaving celebrity juice. I walk away with a ton of amazing memories and will miss working with the brilliant team on camera and behind the scenes. So much love and luck to them all on future series.

The broadcaster and author, who appeared in 20 seasons of the show opposite Keith Lemon and Holly Willoughby, was inundated with messages from Instagram followers lamenting her decision.

This week, Fearne, who is the host of wellness podcast Happy Place, told Lorraine Kelly that she left because she felt the need to take a risk.

“I did 10 brilliant years there and 20 series and I loved it so, so much and I’ll walk away missing the gang massively,” she said, according to Hello Magazine.

Elaborating on her decision to leave the popular ITV show, Fearne, who recently penned a self-help book entitled Quiet, compared it to her decision to leave her Radio 1 show in 2015 after ten years with the station.

I think you need to have change and have a shake-up in life every now and again and take risks and feel a bit scared again.

“It was the same when I left Radio 1 – I left on a bit of a high and wanted to try something new and have a new adventure. It’s very much with that sort of feeling attached to it.”

In addition to the release of Quiet, Fearne has just recently launched the second season of Happy Place.
