NOT EVERYTHING YOU SEE ON SOCIAL MEDIA IS TRUE- SAYS FEARN COTTON





NOT EVERYTHING YOU SEE ON SOCIAL MEDIA IS TRUE- SAYS FEARN COTTON
Fearne Cotton seems to have found the key to happiness – just don’t tell her that her life is perfect.
She has a successful TV career, ­appearing on ITV’s Celebrity Juice with her pal This Morning’s Holly Willoughby  and host Keith Lemon.
Fearne also presented her own show during a ten-year stint on Radio 1. She is happily married to Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood’s son Jesse, and they have two beautiful young children.
But the former Top of the Pops ­presenter has had plenty of downs as well as ups. The 35-year-old has battled ­depression and, like many mums, knows bringing up babies is no easy ride.
Her experiences have made her wary of the kind of ­sweetness and light that seem to characterise ­photo-sharing social media sites such as Instagram.

Fearne said: “I’m guilty of ­looking at some people on Instagram and ­going, ‘God, they have got it all sorted and I seem to be ­struggling today.’ Of course it is ­rubbish, a ­complete fantasy.”
Fearne, who has 1.7 million Instagram followers, said: “People could be going through things not shown in that post.”
She is convinced ­believing everything you see online is unhealthy because no one’s life is ­perfect. She said: “With social media we think we know what we’re viewing and it is such a tiny portion of anyone’s thoughts, ­feelings and experiences. We base whole blanket opinions on people on that.”
Fearne admitted sometimes she ­struggles to juggle work and family life.
She said: “We all go through ups, downs, sorrow, loss, ­bereavement, ­trauma, shock, happiness, joy, elation.
“My job is fun but I’m not ­immune to any of those things. I go through the same stuff as ­everyone else but in a ­different way.”

In December Fearne revealed she had been diagnosed with ­depression a number of years ago after a particularly difficult time.
After splitting up in 2011 from her fiancé Jesse Jenkins, an American skateboarder, she “hit a very dark patch”. She said at the time: “I was ­diagnosed with depression. Although excruciating, this ­explosive yet short ­period of my life lead me to soul search in new ways I hadn’t before.”
