Meanwhile, a Capital spokeswoman said: “We can confirm that Rob Howard and Lauren Layfield will host Capital Breakfast for the rest of this week.”

Listeners noticed the abrupt end to Tuesday’s show as Roman and his co-hosts left the studio after interviewing Little Mix.

Roman has hosted the breakfast show since 2017 after joining the company in 2014.

He initially co-hosted with Vick Hope before Sonny joined the pair full-time in 2018.

However, Vick left the radio show in February this year and then Sian joined Roman and Sonny from March.
