Fearne Cotton reveals her ‘physic powers’ and admits she talks to trees

Fearne Cotton has revealed her ‘physic powers’ after predicting a woman was going to fall into the Thames just before she did.

The TV and radio presenter, 40, has told how she was walking along the river in London when she ‘sensed someone was about to fall in’. 

A lady in a ­wheelchair then toppled into the water nearby before being dragged out by the woman’s partner.

Fearne writes in her book Bigger Than Us: The Power of Finding Meaning in a Messy World about the incident: ‘How on Earth had I picked up on this event 10 minutes before it had even happened? 

‘There are too many variables for it to have been a coincidence.’

In the book extract, given to The Mirror, she also told how she likes to talk to trees and other objects.

She says she recently has a conversation with a bush in the garden to ask it minded being pruned.

She said: ‘I asked if it was OK to proceed and notified the tree it was in the name of growth.

‘There was no direct answer and one wasn’t really needed. It was more a moment of respect and an attitude of humbleness to nature that I had ­previously overlooked.’ 

Fearne also ‘spoke’ with Mount Kilimajaro before climbing it for Comic Relief in 2009.

She writes: ‘Standing at its base I felt tiny and knew I needed support from the ­mountain for the climb. I’m so glad I had that dialogue with the mountain.’

It comes after last week Fearne shared a smiley selfie as she reflected on finding happiness, feeling ‘gratitude’ and leading a quieter life away from the spotlight.

The star took to Instagram to share a sunny snap as she took a break from writing her new book, with Fearne noting how people can be affected by ‘blue Monday’ or equally ‘feel absolute happiness’ at anytime of the day or year.

The also mum-of-two looked back on her younger days when she was at the height of her TV career and admitted she didn’t have the knowledge to ‘take command of my reactions to the world’. 

However, as she leads a more low-key life these days, Fearne reflected that she is now able to find ‘pure joy’ in the little things in life as she remarked she’s ‘not lugging my past around with me any more’. 

Bundled up in a turquoise knitted hat and leopard print coat, Fearne penned: ‘Blue Monday, blue Tuesday, blue Wednesday, blue Thursday, blue Friday, blue Saturday, blue Sunday, it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is, or time of year, you can be blue ANY f*!cking given day. You can also feel absolute happiness on any day for no reason at all. 

‘When I look back on my thirties I wonder how many Mondays I lost to blueness. Probably tons.

‘I might have been commercially more ‘successful’ back then, have filmed more big TV shows, interviewed many famous people, been invited to glamorous events or other stuff that you might believe cultivates happiness but I didn’t have the experience or knowledge to take command of my reactions to the world around me.’

The former Celebrity Juice host continued: ‘I’ve just been on a lunch break walk in between writing a new kids book and planing my Bigger Than Us event tomorrow, and I felt pure joy. 

‘An elderly man on a bench with his face in the sun, The Beatles in my headphones, great colours all around, each step in my muddy trainers a privilege. I’m the same person now but I see the world very differently.

‘I might not be immune to low days or circumstantial painful outcomes but I’m not lugging my past around with me any more.’

Fearne started her career as a children’s presenter before going on to front  big TV shows including Top Of The Pops, Celebrity Juice and the Xtra Factor, as well as forging a successful radio career. 

She is now a best-selling author of a number of self-help and mental positivity books and hosts her Happy Place podcast discussing love, life and loss. 

Looking back on the past, she went on: ‘I might have been called every name under the sun by strangers, been judged from a place of assumption, felt pure panic and a lack of safety being in the public eye but I do not need to carry that s**t around with me every day. 

‘Today I choose to stay in the moment which is a feeling of gratitude for a lunch break walk in the sun! What a joy.’

She concluded: ‘For those of you tackling hard stuff at the moment I send you love. From my own personal experience and from the plethora of individuals I’ve interviewed who have often been to hell and back, I know you’ll get through it. 

‘It might be sticky, painful and soul destroying but you will feel that sun on your face again one day. I don’t want that to sound flippant or whimsical or to be triggering, I just believe it to be true.’
