The BBC Radio One presenter was said to be absolutely thrilled by a special necklace featuring her baby son’s hand print.

The sentimental piece was created by staff at Armathwaite-based business Hand on Heart, near Carlisle.

The company designs and creates personalised jewellery and gifts, which are all handcrafted using true hand, foot or paw prints.

Owner Amanda Dixon said the company had made similar items for other big name celebrities in the past.

She explained: “We contacted Fearne through her agent to tell her about the concept of our jewellery.

“We sent her the kit so she could take some prints of her baby boy.

“She then sent the prints back to us and we created the necklace for her.

“She said she absolutely loves it and we are delighted because it is lovely to see such a personal necklace on someone like her.

“We have created pieces for other celebrities in the past but we can’t say who because they involve hand prints of their children.”

Fearne even posted a photograph of herself proudly wearing the necklace on one of the company’s social media pages.

Amanda set up Hand on Heart with her sister Heather in 2009 after years of making unique jewellery for friends and family.

The pair soon began creating hand print necklaces, charms, cufflinks, keyrings and more.

Fearne, 32, found fame as a teenager on ITV’s The Disney Club.

After making a name for herself as a children’s presenter she landed a role hosting Top of the Pops.

Then in 2006 she secured a job as a presenter on BBC Radio One and now hosts the mid-morning slot.

She currently dates Jesse Wood, the son of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood.

Fearne gave birth to her son, Rex Rayne Wood, on February 21, last year.
