The news of his Capital Radio departure came after The Sun revealed it was revealed that Jordan North was signing a big money deal to join the Capital FM Breakfast team after quitting Radio 1.

Announcing the news alongside his co-hosts Sian Welby and Chris Stark, Roman said: “I’ve got quite a big announcement and it is one that is really weird to say out loud.

“It’s really odd, to be honest I had no idea how I start this. So I’ll come out and say it.

“This is going to be my last six weeks on Capital. Which is a weird thing to say.”

He continued: “What I can tell you is I’m not saying goodbye right now, I’m not leaving the show today and that’s it, but it’s not far away.

“It will come and that goodbye will come in five to six weeks.

“It’s not a decision that has come overnight either, it’s massive, I’ve not found it easy at all.

 “Capital is my family, you as the wonderful listeners that you’ve been, you’ve been with me at my best times and my absolute lowest.

“I know that it started out as me being just Martin Kemp’s son, I hope that now you can call me your friend.”

Roman added: “I’ve loved every single moment of my time at Capital.

“The last 10 years have been amazing and hosting the legendary Capital Breakfast is the best job ever.

“But after almost seven years of early alarms, I’m looking forward to some lie-ins and it’s time to hand over the baton!

“It’s been a privilege and an honour to wake up millions of people every day.

“It’s the best job in radio and I’ll miss our listeners and the team at Global lots.

“Whoever the next host of Capital Breakfast is, they’re in for the most incredible ride.”
