BBC’s Zoe Ball overcome with emotion as she shares death of ‘someone very dear’

Zoe Ball on losing ‘someone very dear’ at the weekend

Zoe Ball was left emotional as she paid tribute to a “beautiful girl” who died over the weekend.

The presenter told listeners of her BBC Radio 2 breakfast show, that the girl was very special to her and shared a heartfelt message to anyone that was dealing with grief.

“We lost someone very dear at the weekend,” she said. “My goodness, the stars were very bright and the rainbows came out this weekend for that beautiful girl.

“Those of my friends that knew her will need a good squeeze at the moment sending lots of love to anyone he might deeply need it at the moment.

“Grief, it’s a terrible thing and it’s good to talk about it and to share it. It’s good to have a good old cuddle and a weep sometimes.”

The 52-year-old was clearly overcome with emotion and did not give any further details about the death.

It comes after Zoe was forced to console her co-star Mike Williams live on air after a personal letter left him in tears. 

The presenter read out the note from the sports reporter’s former teacher, who had wished him all the best in his new job on Match of the Day

As she read out the heartfelt letter, her co-star could be heard sniffling, seemingly crying.

After encouraging that they should meet, Zoe added: “I’m sorry to make you cry, but that’s such a wonderful letter.” The presenter went on to offer Mike a cuddle as she moved on to play a song.

Back in March, she also admitted to feeling sad as she said farewell to her fellow presenter Ken Bruce.

In response to a listener at the time, she said: “I’m very good, a bit emotional because it’s Ken’s last day today and we love him so much!”

But it was a decidedly different mood earlier last month for the star who was all smiles at a photocall for Mamma Mia! I Have A Dream. Zoe briefly swapped the studio for the sunny Greek island of Corfu for her latest project.

The programme sees Zoe searching for two new stars for the hit musical Mamma Mia, with 14 hopefuls heading to Greece to compete for the lead roles of Sophie and Sky in the West End production.

Judges Alan Carr, Jessie Ware, Samantha Barks, and Amber Riley were also on hand as they put the contestants through their paces as they were tested on everything from singing and dancing, to acting and chemistry.
