Fellows DJ Chris Evans said: "@Fearnecotton Oi ! Bloody brilliant. Xxx."

Popstar Jessie J said: "Congrats Babe!"

The Celebrity Juice presenter began dating Wood, the son of Rolling Stones legend Ronnie Wood in 2011, just two months after she split from her fiancé, Jesse Jenkins.

In September, Cotton hinted that they would soon be wedding bells after finally finding her ideal partner in wood.

"I'd love to get married and I'm sure Jesse would too, but we don't have any plans yet," she told Cosmopolitan magazine.

"We're so hectic with a baby and two other kids [Jesse's two children Arthur, 11, and Lola, seven], and we're both working. I think it's important to feel like a family unit though."
