Vanessa Feltz has announced that she will be stepping down from her BBC Radio roles next month after 20 years.

The 60-year-old hosts The Early Breakfast Show from 4am to 6.30am on BBC Radio 2 before switching over to BBC Radio London, hosting the breakfast show between 7am and 10am.

Feltz will bow out of the former programme this Friday, returning to fill in for Jeremy Vine at lunchtimes for two weeks next month before leaving Radio 2 on Friday, August 26 - the same day that she hosts her final show on BBC Radio London.

"It's been an honour and privilege to be the Breakfast voice of BBC Radio London for 20 years and although I'm leaving the show, I'll continue to expect hugs from my lovely listeners when I see them on the streets of London!" she said in a statement.

"I will enjoy a dollop of energy-boosting shut-eye to swing from zip-lines with my three effervescent grandchildren and frolic with my fiancé Ben, who irritatingly remains 10 years younger than me!"

Chris Burns, the BBC's controller of local audio commissioning, added: "Every weekday Vanessa has breezed straight from her Radio 2 programme into the Radio London breakfast show, barely pausing for breath.

"She has effortlessly entertained her 'lovely listener' and sternly held the city's and country's decision makers to account.

"The brightest spark you could ever meet - no matter how early it is and what's going on in the news - to say Vanessa's voice will be missed is an understatement. We wish her well and thank her dearly for her incredible service."

In a statement, the BBC said that Feltz's replacements will be announced "at a later date". body check tags ::
