This Is Local London: Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood are set to tie the knot Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood are set to tie the knot

Fearne Cotton is set to wed her boyfriend Jesse Wood.

The TV and radio host and the guitarist - who have a ten-month-old son, Rex Rayne, together - got engaged at the weekend.

Fearne, 32, tweeted: "I'm over the moon to tell you that on Sunday Jesse proposed and I happened to say Yes."

The couple have been dating since 2011 and a few months ago Fearne said in an interview that she would love to walk down the aisle with Jesse, who is the son of Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood.

The star was previously engaged to Jesse Jenkins and earlier this year told Cosmopolitan that she hit "rock bottom" when her engagement failed.

However, she went on to find love again when a mutual friend introduced her to Jesse Wood.

She said in the interview: "What you don't know at the time is that as one door closes, another opens - and soon after, I met the love of my life and got to have a baby."

Several of Fearne's showbiz friends have tweeted their congratulations following the engagement news.

Chris Evans wrote: "Oi! B****y brilliant. Xxx."

Jessie J tweeted: "CONGRATS BABE!"
