George Shelley & Lilah Parsons leave Capital Breakfast
Dave Berry’s co-hosts George Shelley & Lilah Parsons have left the Capital London Breakfast show.
Dave, who hosted his last show on Friday, is joining Absolute Radio to host a yet unannounced daily show. George and Lilah are not leaving altogether though – a Capital spokesperson says they’ll appear elsewhere on the schedule. The spokesperson also said “We wish Dave lots of luck for the future” and that details of a new breakfast show will be announced soon.
Meanwhile, The Sun is reporting Roman Kemp, currently on evenings, will take over the breakfast show full time.
Former 1Xtra and KISS presenter Will Manning & Capital early breakfast show host Aimee Vivian are hosting the show on Monday morning and are on the schedule for all of next week. Will joined Capital 12 months ago originally to host a number of cover shows. He now hosts Drive.
Here’s a tweet from Dave Berry explaining more about his departure:
Thank you for all your wonderful messages, I'm really touched.
