She told the new issue of the : ‘I’m not going anywhere yet that I know of. 

‘You’re only one sentence away from being cancelled, of course. That’s what I always say to Greg James: “I’ve not been cancelled today.” So I’m there at the moment, fingers crossed.

The star went on the note a number of her colleagues had left the station recently – Steve Wright signed of from his afternoon show after 23 years last month, Scott Mills moved from BBC Radio 1 to Radio 2 to take over Steve’s show, and Zoe took over in the breakfast slot siteleri from Chris Evens in 2019.

‘I guess things come in cycles. It’s like everything — people want to do stuff differently,’ she said. I love Steve Wright — he has really looked after me; he’s like a godfather, such a gorgeous man — but maybe he wants to do different things.’

Woody Cook, 21, decided to follow in his DJ father’s footsteps after playing impromptu sets at his halls of residence at Bristol University during the height of the Covid pandemic.

After spending his teenage years partying, the youngster said his celebrity parents were doubtful he was serious about his plans.  

But he said the response from his TV presenter mother and music legend father ‘spurred him on’ and led him to take their long-standing advice to learn ‘to stand on my own two feet’.

Woody told MailOnline: ‘They were hesitant about my plans. I don’t think they believed in me. I think that’s the job of good parents, not to believe so that you can prove them wrong.  

‘If they did believe in me and I wasn’t working very hard then they’re not doing the right thing. They really spurred me on.

‘It has been a beautiful moment to be able to leave the nest and stand on my own two feet.’
