Scott Mills has announced that his Assistant Producer Rebecca Huxtable, or Wacky Becky as she’s known, is leaving the show.
Rececca has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis so will return to working with Aled Jones on a part time basis.
She said “I haven’t been on the show full time for a while. A while ago I got MS (multiple sclerosis) which is rubbish. I stopped walking, being able to rap. I want to come back to work full time but I can’t do it.”
Becky will leave the show on Friday.
The announcement of Becky’s departure was teased with a tweet from Scott earlier:
If you're a fan of my show you NEED to listen today @BBCR1 from 1pm. An important announcement and I wouldn't want you to miss it
