But on Friday, February 24, 2023, the radio broadcaster said he would be leaving away from the programme aged 68. “Some news from me, firstly thanks for all your inquiries,” he tweeted, revealing his intention to depart LBC.

Thank you all for listening over the previous 44 years. My contract with LBC is about to expire, and after conversations, I’m stepping down from LBC today. It’s been a pleasure and an honour. According to a representative for Global, one of the longest-serving radio presenters in the UK, “We applaud him for his great commitment to commercial radio over the last 44 years.”
