| Last updated
BBC Radio 2 listeners are confused as Zoe Ball ‘vanished off air’ midway through the show this morning.
Early risers tuning in to the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show from 6.30 am were shocked to discover that the DJ appeared to disappear during her show on Monday 4th April.
Radio listeners took to Twitter to share their confusion about the seemingly unexpected departure of the DJ, with one listener reporting that Richie Anderson stepped in on the breakfast show to ‘hold the fort’.
Craig Bratt wrote on the social media site: "Well in @richie_anderson holding the Radio 2 fort this morning. Hope @ZoeTheBall is ok - she just vanished off air!"
"Zoe Ball off again. I mean, why bother BBC radio 2," Davo tweeted.
Nicola added that Ball's stand-in, Anderson, 'needs his own show'.
"Loving @richie_anderson on #BBCRadio2 this morning…he needs his own show".
Elsewhere, other listeners reported that Ken Bruce took over her slot on the radio show.
"How to confuse this idiot,.wake him up early & find Ken Bruce has turned into Zoe Ball!! The laws of the universe have been disrupted [sic]," another Twitter user wrote.
"Ken Bruce doing Radio 2 Breakfast. Catching the mood of the nation on a Monday morning far better than Zoe Ball ever can," Chris penned.
Despite Ball's departure, the BBC Sounds website still said this morning that Zoe Ball was on the radio from 6.30 am to 9.30 am and was scheduled to chat to Nick Grimshaw, even though this appeared not to be the case.
A representative of BBC Radio 2 told LADbible: "Zoe was taken unwell during her show so headed home. Richie Anderson took over and Ken Bruce took over from Richie at 0830."
