Fearne Cotton reveals the real reason she left role on Celebrity Juice

Fearne Cotton has revealed why she left ITV2 show Celebrity Juice.

The former Radio 1 host, who has just released a new book about finding quiet in a busy life, spoke to ITV’s Lorraine Kelly about what drove her to move onto new projects, and leave her mates.

The ITV2 show sees host Keith Lemon put the team captains, currently Fearne and Holly Willoughby, throug htheir paces with a series of "silly" and sometimes, very innuendo-filled games.

But Fearne announced earlier this year she would be leaving the show after a long time serving as a team captain.

When asked whether she was "too grown up" for the show and was leaving for that reason, Fearne said: "Oh my god, no way! I don’t feel like I’ve grown up at all!

"I did ten brilliant years there, and 20 series, and I love it so, so much and I’ll walk away missing the gang massively. But you need to have a change and 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 kind of left on a bit of a high and wanted to try something new and have a new adventure. So it’s very much with that kind of feeling, but I’ll miss everyone massively."

The most recent series saw some guest team captains take over for Holly, including the show’s Christmas special, as she was sunning in Australia to team up as I’m A Celebrity co-host with Dec Donnelly.

Fearne also talked about her podcast, which deals with similar issues to her new book.

Lorraine airs weekdays at 8.30am on ITV.
