Television and radio presenter Fearne Cotton has said that she was bullied when she was younger.

According to The Guardian, she said that students from her school often picked on her because of her appearances in 'The Disney Club' and 'Diggit'.

Cotton said: "I would want to bunk off school most days. I had a tough time for a while."

"They would shout stuff across the lunch hall, bitchy comments, and throw things."

"It happens in every school, there's always an element of bullying."

"But my friends were brilliant because they stuck up for me and would be mouthy back."

"To be doing what I'm doing now, it was worth it, in a cheesy way..."
