Ahead of his final appearance, Steve also took to social media. He wrote on Radio 2’s social media accounts: “I wanted to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has taken the trouble to listen over the past 23 years.
“I would like to say what a privilege it’s been bringing you great choons (sic), conversation, information, entertainment, high humour and of course great guests.”
The lovable host added: “I’m not retiring! Steve Wright’s Sunday Love Songs continues on Radio 2 every weekend.”
Amid the BBC Radio 2 mixup, Radio 1’s Scott Mills is set to take over the afternoon slot.
