Fearne Cotton has thrown herself into the Easter spirit by giving a gorgeous baby chick a little cuddle.

But although the Celebrity Juice star looked pretty happy as she posed with the little fluffball for a photo, she has since revealed a very yucky secret behind the snap.

Taking to Instagram, Fearne shared the shot – which shows her crouched on the floor while carefully cradling the yellow chick in her hands – with her 2.1 million followers.

Writing in the caption, however, the 36-year-old revealed: “Approximately 2.5 seconds after this photo was taken ‘the rock’ s*at all over my hand.”

Commenting on her fuzzy coat, Fearne added: “Happy easter (and for the millionth time it is faux fur, as if I would wear fur!).”

Despite the gross mishap, Fearne is a huge animal lover and is a proud vegetarian.

But although she has written many vegan recipes for her own cook books, the mum-of-two previously admitted that she does feed her children meat and isn’t sure she could go the whole way herself.

In a recent interview with the Independent, Fearne was asked whether she could ever become a vegan but confessed: “I don’t think I could do it. You have to be so organised.

“I think I love the idea of it and for sustainability and the planet, it’s amazing. But I try to do my bit.

“I eat a lot of vegan dishes because I love getting loads of veg and pulses in my diet and I really enjoy vegan cooking and eating vegan dishes. But I don’t think I could go the whole hog.”

She added: “We get a veg box each week and use every ounce of that. I do feed my kids meat, although I don’t eat it, but I buy nice organic free-range meat.”

Meanwhile, earlier this week Fearne joined her best friend Holly Willoughby in dressing up as the characters of Grease for Celebrity Juice.

But while Holly kept things fairly chic, by wearing her hair in a loose up ‘do and donning a pair of trendy PVC trousers, Fearne went the extra mile and sported a thick black wig and frumpy checked skirt, after taking on the role of Jan.
