Fearne Cotton says she is worried about returning to her Radio 1 show in September as she thinks she's out of practice.

"I won't know how to do it any more. I won't be able to use the desk," she says.

"I'll probably talk utter rubbish but nothing's new there."

The presenter has been on maternity leave since the end of 2012 and gave birth to son, Rex Rayne Wood, two months ago.

It was the 31-year-old's first child with her partner Jesse Wood, son of Rolling Stones musician Ronnie Wood.

Usually at this point of the day I'm covered in sick or bathing a child in a tracksuit looking awful. So it feels really weird to be out tonight

"Jesse and I are over the moon to announce the arrival of Rex Rayne Wood born on the 21.2.13 beyond in love," she wrote at the time, on Twitter.

Sara Cox is currently standing in for Fearne on the mid-morning weekday show.

The DJ made a rare public appearance since having her baby, at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards 2013 in London.

"Usually at this point of the day I'm covered in sick or bathing a child in a tracksuit looking awful," Fearne said.

"So it feels really weird to be out tonight."
