Roman Kemp reveals plans to quit showbiz after being diagnosed with terrifying disorder

ROMAN Kemp has confessed he plans to quit showbiz in five years following his diagnosis with a terrifying disorder caused by his schedule.

The 29-year-old has hosted the Capital breakfast show for five years but admits his long term plan is a life out of the spotlight.


He said: "I want a decade on air at least. I would love to be able to say I did a decade on that show – whether my bosses will allow that I don't know."

Opening up about his goals for the future, Roman shared plans for a quiet life and insisted he won't stay in the UK forever.

Speaking to the MailOnline, he continued: "I want to get to the point where I start a family and do what I want to do.

"I want to be a stay-at-home dad and open a dog sanctuary."

Roman also revealed his intention was never to become famous but to earn enough money to "retire young".

After five years of demanding early starts for his radio show Roman has been diagnosed with sleep apnoea, a condition which causes your breathing to stop and start while sleeping.

He revealed it's so bad that he's been advised by doctors to wear an oxygen mask at night.

Roman said: "The doctors told me I must wear an oxygen mask. There is absolutely nothing sexy about going back to Roman Kemp's house.
