Roman Kemp breaks down in tears as he says emotional goodbye in final radio show

Roman Kemp breaks down in tears as he says emotional goodbye in final radio show

He shared a touching message on his final Capital Breakfast show

Roman Kemp broke down in tears while saying an emotional goodbye in his final radio show today (28 March).

The Capital Breakfast star, who hosted the show for a decade, took the opportunity to thank his fans for supporting him throughout his career and even 'saving his life'.

Roman, 31, is set to be replaced by Radio 1's Jordan North who has since been replaced by Made in Chelsea's Jamie Laing.

The DJ began by telling listeners: "I know that there is a lot of people listening right now, and I wanted to take the time to say thank you.

"I was more nervous about saying I was leaving than actually leaving this show.

"This show is run by so many people behind the scenes who try so hard to give you that bit of energy in the morning and to try and get you up and feeling good, but I think what I want to get across is just how much fun I've had on this station in the past ten years."

Roman continued: "It has changed my life in so many ways and I have grown up in this place, and that's because of all of you listening.

"You have been able to be there for me through things that I never imagined would even happen."

He went on to reveal he's had moments on the show where his 'whole life outside of work is completely down the pan', adding: "There were times where I didn't want to be here anymore.

"There have been moments where my life outside of this room has been the worst thing ever."

Thanking his listeners, he carried on: "I knew that all I had in my life were these four hours in my day where I could come to work and in those four hours I knew that I was going to laugh and have fun and be surrounded by people that get me and those four hours and those people that I'm talking about include you - the listeners.

"You have no idea how much you have helped me."

Roman added: "Over the years I've been so blessed with some fantastic co-hosts and I can't do this show without mentioning Vick Hope, who was with me from the beginning of this show."

He said it was 'so amazing' to start the show alongside Vick, saying it 'was like having my best mate in the room at all time'.

Roman then took the opportunity to also praise co-host, Sian Welby, finishing up: "I've said it before, you're my best friend and I really mean that and I can't wait for you to have your baby, you've got a brand new life coming into this world and I can't wait to be there for you when that happens.

"And I'm so grateful you made me godfather."

And, signing off, Roman then played a lovely rendition of Italian operatic song 'Con te partirò' - which translates to 'Time to Say Goodbye'.

He first announced he was departing from Capital Breakfast last month.

"I’ve loved every single moment of my time at Capital," he said. "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!"

Roman added: "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."
