Big news for Radio 1 listeners today. After 10 years, Fearne Cotton is leaving ohmy.gif

She will be replaced by Clara Amfo. Are you happy/sad/indifferent about this?

I used to listen to her show religiously when i started uni and have always liked her as a personality. Never understood some of the flack she gets. Chu?

Love Fearne! Never listen to her show, rarely around at that time anyway, but Clara will no doubt be a fantastic replacement, she's been great on the chart biggrin.gif

I used to like her, but she has become a bit irritating over the years (though not quite to the extent of Sara Cox), still she did do the Live Lounge well considering how much people moaned when Jo Whiley exited and this is something of an end of an era.

Clara seems reasonably competent from what I've heard, the Live Lounge is pretty big shoes to fill but we'll see ~

Fearne was my favourite, I loved her and her show so much. She was also great on the chart

One of the few people I have irrational disdain for, but I don't listen to the radio anyway so I just hope she doesn't reappear somewhere I DO engage with.

I was never a big fan of Fearne Cotton tbh.

With Clara Amfo replacing her does that mean we'll get a new chart presenter then? It seems a bit much for her to be doing Monday - Friday alongside Sunday. I imagine she'll leave her weekend morning slot on 1Xtra at least

I think she is staying on the chart but leaving morning slot on 1xtra

To be honest never been a fan of Fearne, used to love listening to Jo Wiley before she took over, maybe now I get to listen to the morning show. Clara Amfo doing 6 days a week could take a toil on her, maybe we get a new chart host again, during the summer, if Radio 1 decide to move the chart show.

I don't actively dislike Fearne but I pretty much prefer every other daytime presenter.

Aww I liked Fearne on the radio, she definitley gets far too much undeserved hate. She's as passionate about music as the rest of the Radio 1 daytime DJs.

I always though they were pushing Gemma Cairney to take over her slot though, oops.

What's with all the Fearne hate? It really is baffling. She's a huge personality and a massive part of my growing up! I don't listen to her shows (only clips and things from various live lounges and when I've been in cars on long journeys etc...) but she seemed like a great presenter on the shows.

I love her!

No real loss there. I remember a topic she wanted people to text in about during the chart in 2008 was 'have you ever had something stuck up your nose?'......yeah.

Also we don't need people like her, claiming that people criticising her presenting are 'bullying' her. Such a term we do not need people to misunderstand.

Well huge personalities tend to be marmite so it's not exactly baffling really. Personally I can stomach her in small doses, but she is symptomatic of that smug/snobby Radio 1 'real music' crowd.

Ugh Gemma Cairney is bloody awful. I heard her present part of the EOY countdown and I found her such a drip banging on about nonsensical rubbish so I'm glad they've given it to Clara over her.

I'm definitely in the love Fearne group. Their were a few times she grated on me notably when doing the chart with Reggie but overall I've found the hate towards her to be quite strong. Even people and tutors at my uni used to moan about her sad.gif

I do like Fearnes morning shows but she's been going a long time for radio 1 and she was going to go sooner or later so I'm not too sad about this. She was also part of my childhood too ( finger tips kink.gif )

This. Except I can't stomach her at all. Horrible personality and this is EXCELLENT NEWS, despite my never listening to R1.

I am truly gutted Fearne will be leaving sad.gif She has been my favourite dj for many years sad.gif however I understand she wants to have a family

Clara being the presenter is good but I wanted Alice Lavine to get that slot once Fearne left to me Alice had a more natural fit to that slot to be honest. She has had live lounges before and plays new music on her show and prevously with Phil Taggart. So dont know why Ben Cooper gave it to Clara is beyond me but will give her a chance biggrin.gif
