Fearne Cotton was seen eating, drinking and being merry in a Rickmansworth pub last night.

The Radio 1 DJ was spotted at The Feathers, in Church Street, having a Christmas meal with a group of friends.

Victoria Keen, manager at The Feathers, said: "She came last year for her Christmas meal as well. A lot of her friends are local so I think she comes in when she’s here visiting them. She gave us a shout out on the radio this morning as well."

Miss Cotton ordered the sea bass and according to pub staff, only had water to drink. The 32-year-old took to the social networking application, Instagram, to post a photograph of their group during the night.

Ms Keen said: "They were there for around two and a half hours. It wasn’t a late night for her, she had a radio show to do in the morning."
