Roman Kemp should update his LinkedIn profile now that he is a permanent host on The One Show.
As a regular on the BBC show, the 30-year-old has already proven he’s up for the job, and his efforts have been rewarded with the role.
Alex Jones, 46, will continue to host every episode of the weekday show, while Roman and Jermaine Jenas, 40, will divide the duties.
Sharing his joy at the job Roman said: ‘I’m very excited to become a permanent presenter on The One Show – I have had so much fun filming with the team already over the past year on the sofa.
‘It’s a dream come true to be on primetime BBC One, bringing the best topical news and entertainment to the nation.’
Meanwhile, Ronan Keating will be doing fewer shows. The 46-year-old explained why he’d be stepping back in a statement: ‘I’ll be doing less shows this year due to my performing and recording schedule but I’m still very much part of the family and wish Roman the best of luck.’
Not only that, but Desert Island Discs host Lauren Laverne has been offered a’regular position on the sofa’.
Roman Kemp, the son of Spandau Ballet legend Martin Kemp, has a lengthy employment at Capital FM presenting their breakfast radio programme alongside Sian Welby, who just got engaged, and Chris Stark.
He also collaborated with Sarah Greene to present The Finish Line, a completely new game show.
The format tests five participants on general knowledge, but speed is also vital as they compete to complete a ‘racing course’ in the quickest time and win the £5,000 prize fund.
He instantly struck up a friendship with Sarah, 65, who has returned to the spotlight after nearly a decade away.
She said of her connection with Roman: ‘I feel as though I’ve met him because I work with his parents [Martin and Shirlie Kemp]. So, I said, “I am your honorary godmother. You do know that, don’t you?”‘
With such a hectic work schedule, Roman has ruled himself out of another BBC behemoth, Strictly Come Dancing.
His opposition, however, stems from a fear of injury rather than a lack of time.
‘I would almost bet that I would end up getting injured,’ he told OK!
‘I’ve had two knee operations, and a slipped disc. And I don’t think it’s really built for me.’
If Roman does participate, he has his sights set on one professional dancer in particular: Johannes Radebe.
‘The only way I’d do Strictly is if I was teamed up with Johannes [Radebe],’ he admitted.
‘I think sometimes the show takes away from the skill of the dancers and it becomes like a soap opera of who’s dating who.’
The One Show is on BBC one at 7pm every weeknight.
