It has now been explained that the trio were aware of the tragic news regarding someone they were working with.
An industry source revealed to The Sun, “Roman and his colleagues are in total shock, they can’t believe someone they were all close to is gone.
“They were all completely upset by the upsetting news and take time to mourn and digest the tragedy.
“It’s a tough time for all of them right now. ”
Listeners had taken to social media to ask what happened to Roman after appearing to disappear this morning following an interview with Little Mix.
Roman, 27, has now been granted leave from the studio managers with alternate hosts Rob Howard and Lauren Layfield for the remainder of the week.
The son of Spandau Ballet star Martin Kemp made Breakfast a huge hit for the station and regularly draws four million listeners to his weekly shows.
Roman was given the reins of the National Breakfast Show last year, with co-host Sonny Jay – who still presents – and Vick Hope, who left in February of this year to be replaced by Sian Welby.
Vick’s shock departure was announced by Roman live as he told listeners, “You may have noticed that Vick Hope is not here today. It may surprise you, but Vick left Capital Breakfast. “
He went on to explain that his co-star decided to leave the station because she had had exciting television opportunities.
In June, Roman and his father Martin launched their own show Martin and Roman’s Sunday Best! on ITV in June.
The Sunday morning show sees father and son come together to interview famous guests and take part in light challenges.
