TALK OF THE TOWN: Fearne Cotton reveals she can't share a bed with her husband over fears he will disturb her when she is about to fall asleep
I've heard a few excuses for kicking a husband out of the marital bed in my time – but Fearne Cotton’s explanation for sleeping solo is a new one on me.
The TV presenter – pictured with her husband, Ronnie Wood’s musician son Jesse Wood – says she has a ‘neurosis’ which means she has to go to bed on her own, with Jesse in a different room of their £2million South-West London home, for fear he will disturb her when she’s on the brink of falling asleep.
‘I’ve got this stupid neurosis where I have to go to bed before him,’ explains mum-of-two Fearne, 38.
‘Otherwise I get this weird panic that he will come in and wake me up, and that’s what makes me unable to get to sleep. It doesn’t make any sense, it’s so silly.’ You can say that again, Fearne.

Judge Rinder has rapped his pal Benedict Cumberbatch for moaning about people asking him for selfies.
He says: ‘You know what I have to say to people like Benedict who complain? It’s two words rearranged: “off” and “****”. How about getting a real job?’
Rinder went to Manchester University with Benedict, and added: ‘I am actually the person that made Benedict straight, just so you know.’ Crikey, wonder how the gay TV star did that?
Crush of the week: Red-hot Ferrari heir
Gregorio Marini-Clarelli, 26, is heir to the vast Ferrari fortune.
I'm not so shallow to suggest that being from one of Europe’s wealthiest families should be enough to earn a place in this coveted spot... it’s just a coincidence that this week’s pick, Gregorio Marini-Clarelli, 26, is heir to the vast Ferrari fortune.
The Marquess of Vacone, who recently posted this topless picture of himself on the Greek island of Paxos, has been popping up on the London circuit thanks to his new girlfriend, who I can reveal is Sophie Hermann of Made In Chelsea.
So he is off the market – for the time being at least. Which is very bad news for the legions of women who’d just love to get better acquainted with that fabulous chest.
He was once a legendary party animal – but Pippa Middleton’s brother-in-law Spencer Matthews has become so enamoured of his newly sober lifestyle that it’s inspired his latest money-making wheeze – a ‘Clean Liquor’ gin that will contain just one unit of alcohol for every litre.
The reality TV star has persuaded his father David to stock it at his Caribbean hotel Eden Rock. And it was flowing freely at a bash Spencer threw with the Middletons last week to mark Eden Rock’s reopening after hurricane damage.
Make mine a triple, Spencer! Chin chin!
