Roman Kemp

Season 18, Ep. 3

Are you ok? It’s a question that’s often worth repeating with the people we love. Capital Breakfast Show host Roman Kemp lost his best friend and radio producer to suicide in 2020, and is now more adamant than ever that we must keep asking our friends and family if they’re really ok.


In this chat with Fearne, Roman explains why he feels it’s important to share both his ongoing grief, and stories of his own mental health with the nation each day. They also talk about why it’s important to be bold about using the word suicide; in naming it, we’re more able to do something about it.


Roman’s book, Are You Really Ok? is out now.


CONTENT WARNING: This episode contains frank chat about suicide throughout, so do take care while listening.
