Sharing the news on her Instagram page, the proud author wrote: "Lockdown has proved to be quite a creative time for me and my preferred means of expression which will always be writing.

"I’m excited to have finished a new book which will be available early next year. Writing Speak Your Truth was a cathartic adventure as I looked back on how I’ve used my voice over the years."

Fearne added: "So many of us feel silenced, terrified to speak up or fear judgement, so swallow our words down. I hope this book provides a helping hand to those who feel similarly so that we can all walk down a new and expansive path together where truth reigns supreme, integrity is cherished and authenticity drives us always."

Fearne Cotton has been married to Jesse Wood since July 2014

"I am a very fiery person, and Jesse can also be quite fiery," Fearne said on her Happy Place podcast. "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."

The 38-year-old also admitted she has shouted at her two children on more than one occasion during lockdown. She added: "I’ve also shouted at my kids like I think most parents have, especially during lockdown. We have no school, full-time work for me, no help here whatsoever — like most families, you’re just stuck within four walls trying to survive. It has been mad.

"We’ve all had a shout at each other, the kids have shouted at me, we’ve shouted at them. But I constantly endeavour to go, 'Fearne, don’t act like a child, get yourself together'."
