Former breakfast show presenter Cox will fill in for Cotton's 10am-12.45pm show later this year.

The official Radio 1 Twitter feed announced: "We have news! We can confirm that the wonderful @sarajcox will be filling in for Fearne when she goes on maternity!"

Cox retweeted the post, adding the hashtag: "#sooochuffed".

Radio 1 have yet to make an official announcement as to when Cotton will be starting her maternity leave.

Cox stated last year that she would be interested in working on The X Factor or The Xtra Factor.

Chris Moyles will host his final ever breakfast show on BBC Radio 1 on Friday September 14, ahead of Nick Grimshaw's first breakfast show for the station on September 24.
