Radio 1 DJ and sometime TV presenter, Fearne Cotton, has received a series of death threats via text message.

Sources say that the message were fairly graphic and left the star understandably shaken.  Cotton received the texts while she was on air, presenting the Official Chart Show with co-presenter Reggie Yates.

Though terrified, Cotton continued with the broadcast but was escorted from the studio by police.  The Daily Mail reports that a man in Derby has been arrested and cautioned over the matter.

It was announced last week that DJ Jo Whiley would be stepping down from her spot on the morning show and will be replaced with Cotton.
