Today, Fearne Cotton's husband is Jesse Wood. But once upon a time, the TV personality was preparing to tie the knot with someone else, her ex-fiance Jesse Jenkins.

Fearne broke up with her skateboarder fiance when she was 29 years old. The couple first started dating in 2008 and they broke up and made up a few times in the duration of their relationship.

While speaking to Cosmopolitan, Fearne revealed that having a failed engagement was her "rock bottom moment." At the time, she felt she would never meet anyone again. But thankfully, she did later find true love.

How a royal wedding led to the breakup

Speaking on the podcast How To Fail With Elizabeth Day, Fearne opened up about how Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding helped her realize that her relationship with Jenkins wasn't going anywhere.

She was one of the several reporters overseeing the event and it made her aware of the fallbacks in her own romance.

The TV presenter explained that watching the royal wedding in 2011 was such a beautiful thing, adding:

I was right outside the palace gates watching it all take place, and it started to hit home that it wasn't going to happen for me. And it was pretty much straight after that that it all just imploded.

She further explained that her wedding venue was booked around that time and everything was planned. But the engagement came to an end.

I had bought an inexpensive dress that I thought 'this could work'. I think that's when I started to realize things were going down the pan. I'd really thought about the venue, but then I started to invest less and less in it.

Moving on

The breakup of her engagement certainly was devastating But shortly after that, she met and fell in love with Jesse Wood.

The couple welcomed their first child in February 2013 and the following year, in July, they tied the knot. Their second child, Honey, was born in September 2015.

Breaking off an engagement can be very difficult. But Fearne's story shows that sometimes, one thing has to come to an end for another to begin. Today, she's a happy wife and mother who has now realized that ending that past relationship was the best thing for everyone.
