Fearne Cotton shocked many when she announced her plans to leave BBC Radio 1 and now the DJ has confirmed her next project.
Cotton, who is expecting her second child with husband Jesse Wood, has revealed that she will be one of the voices of an upcoming remake of the hit children’s series Teletubbies.
The 33-year-old will provide the voice of trumpets, which pop out of the ground in the show, and said that she is excited about the new opportunity.
“Teletubbies holds a special place in my heart so I’m honoured to be part of this well-loved TV show. As a mum, I am sure the new series will enthral a whole new generation of children across Britain and I will certainly be watching with my kids,” she said.
Cotton will be joined by Absolutely Fabulous star Jane Horrocks, legendary actor Jim Broadbent and Antonia Thomas of Misfits to voice the new series, with the characters being given a “refreshed and contemporary look”.
