Claudia Winkleman has announced she will be quitting her BBC Radio 2 show after 15 years on air.
The presenter shared the news with her listeners during Saturday’s show admitting she wishes to spend more time with her daughter.
She said: ‘I would love to share mind, firstly, I’m going to say it out loud and with vim, I love Radio 2.
‘It is an absolute privilege to be here every Saturday chatting to amazing guests, being sally and mainly reading your fantastic messages.
‘But here’s the thing, it is such a boring cliché so I apologise. Time is going too fast, my daughter is getting ready to leave home and she was three about five minutes ago, I still have a little one who wants to be with me and I just need to be at home more.’

‘So my news at 10 is that I’m leaving but I have two pieces of exceptional news. One, the person taking over is one of the funniest and smartest people on earth, we are going to love listening to him every Saturday at 10, think of this if you will as an early Christmas present, the one and only Romesh Ranganathan is going to be here from April and he is majestic.
‘Number two, the second piece of good news, the bosses have said I can play – and I’m unapologetic about this – an obscene amount of this…’
She went on to play Oasis hit You Gotta Roll With it.
