Alan Carr quits Radio 2
To spend more time with his chat show
Alan Carr is quitting the Saturday night Radio 2 show he has hosted for the last three years.
The comic says he wants his weekends back, and needs to concentrate on his Channel 4 talk show, Chatty Man.
He said: 'I've loved every minute of it but it's time to reclaim my weekends. I wish Radio 2 every success but I'll listen from my home in the future instead.
The station's head of programmes, Lewis Carnie, said: 'We'd like to thank Alan for his contribution over the past three years.
'Alan and his co-presenter, Mel Sykes, have made a terrific contribution to Saturday evenings on Radio 2. We'll be announcing plans for a new Saturday evening programme shortly.'
Zoe Ball and Alan Titchmarsh have also recently left the station – the most popular in the UK.
