Zoe Ball has apologized for withdrawing from her BBC Radio 2 show this morning after thanking listeners for their support following her unexpected absence earlier.
The 51-year-old radio presenter hosts her own breakfast show on weekdays and was due to resume her presenting duties for the first episode of the new week at 6.30am this morning.
However, it turned out she was late due to a flat tire and trip reporter Richie Anderson covered until she took the reins again at around 6.50am.
She teased that her deputy would be disappointed at no longer being able to host the show, although he later gave her that opportunity when she disappeared without warning.
Richie later explained that she went home because she wasn’t “feeling too good”, although no further details were given to listeners of the Zoe Ball Breakfast Show This Morning.
Zoe has since apologized for her absence in a post on Twitter, in which the Strictly Come Dancing alum opened up about why she didn’t make it through her radio show.
She wrote: “Sorry about that morning gang, Tire walked on his way to work. I was so keen not to miss the show that I rushed in and didn’t quite realize the effect it was having on me.”

The presenter assured fans that she was fine and thanked them for the “good news” she had received since her unexpected departure from the show this morning.
She also thanked her colleagues, including Richie, for their intervention and ended the post by confirming to fans that she will be back for the radio show tomorrow.
The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show runs from 6:30am to 9:30am with the presenter following her previous absence to present the entire radio program tomorrow.
Zoe described the flat tire incident as “a bit of drama” as she appeared on the radio show this morning, before colleague Richie took over again around 7:30am.
Fans were concerned after the news that she was not well and some later expressed their gratitude upon hearing she was fine tweeting about the experience.
The Mirror reached out to a Zoe Ball representative for comment.
