Lockdown has been a tough time for many - particularly families with young children - as Fearne Cotton has admitted.

The TV and radio broadcaster has admitted she and husband Jesse Wood are both “fiery” which has occasionally lead to arguments in front of their children.

The 38-year-old also revealed the stresses of family life had lead to her occasionally shouting at her two children “especially during lockdown”.

Cotton has been married to Wood, the son of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie, since 2014, and said that although she regretted having confrontations in front of their children it is something “most parents” have done.

Speaking on her Happy Place podcast, she said: “I am a very fiery ­person, and Jesse can also be quite fiery.

“We’ve certainly argued in front of the kids. Most parents have at some point.

“It’s not regular but we have definitely had a pop at each other in front of them — and you don’t feel good about it after.

“I’ve also shouted at my kids like I think most parents have, especially during lockdown.”

The couple celebrated their six year anniversary earlier this month, and she took to social media to declare her love to Wood.
