She is flashing a toothy grin which reveals a clunky set of braces. 

Fearne captioned the picture: ‘Just when you thought I’d run out of 90’s photos to remind you that there’s a fresh new episode Sounds Of the 90’s on BBC Sounds I pull this out of the bag. 

‘So many things to discuss. The mouth bursting with braces. The Kermit Clein poster!!!!!!

‘My name written in shells most definitely purchased on a camping trip to the Isle of Wight. The boarder at the top of the wallpaper. The two tone hair. I could go on….

‘Enjoy the music on this weeks show! There are some nostalgic bangers in there for you!’

Fearne has been hosting the podcast show for six weeks during lockdown in a bid to keep listeners’ spirits high. 

The presenter, who is always candid with her followers, recently uploaded an Instagram where she beams for the camera while flashing her abs in a crop top.

Looking radiant as she posed makeup-free whilst pushing her hair away from her face, she penned: ‘Me and my slightly hairy armpits have just done a 40 minute workout. 

‘As a self professed control freak who isn’t great with change, my daily work out has been a comfort and necessity. 

‘My kids may have been arguing over a colouring book throughout but hey we’re all muddling through. 

‘Love and good vibes to you all today. Love to those in my family who are showing extreme strength at the moment. Love and good VIBES!’

Fearne has been sharing candid insights during lockdown and recently discussed the difficulties of trying to navigate a blended family amid the UK coronavirus crisis. 

The presenter shares Rex, seven, and Honey, four, with her rocker beau Jesse Wood, who also has Arthur, 18, and Lola, 14, with his ex-wife Tilly. 

She said: ‘I, like many of you, are part of a blended family and after last night’s announcement it’s really difficult to know how to play that. My step-kids come and go from both houses — to our house, to their mum and step-dad’s.

‘From what we’ve read, we think the best approach is to take it as long as both sets of parents have no symptoms or children, and they haven’t in the last two weeks, we should be able to continue having the kids dropped off or picking them up.

‘So we can spend time with them because the thought of not seeing them for, God knows how long, is tricky. There’s so much more I want to say but my brain is scrambled, I haven’t had much sleep. So much love to you all, stay home and safe.’

It comes after Fearne jokingly claimed that her two children have ‘no respect for her whatsoever’ during homeschooling.
