Roman Kemp finds love with radio producer Codie Jones after tragic death of their best friend
ROMAN Kemp found love again a year after breaking up with his ex-model – with his radio colleague.
The I’m A Celebrity star fell in love with Australian radio producer Codie Jones after getting closer after the death of her best friend.
Codie and Roman have bonded in grief for Roman producer Joe Lyons, who passed away suddenly in August 2020.
They’ve been “dating quietly” for over a month now, and she has even met her famous parents.
“Roman and Codie both worked with Joe and were very close to him, so his death hit them both very hard,” the insider said.
“They got closer and ended up falling in love with each other. They’ve been dating for a while now – it’s clear to everyone at work that they are head over heels in love with each other.
“Codie met Roman’s parents, Martin and Shirlie, before they started dating, so they already loved her. She fits in perfectly with the family.
Roman split from ex-model Anne-Sophie Flury in July 2020 after three years together, and was briefly linked with Lottie Moss the following month – but remained single until he reunited with Codie.
Codie worked on Australian radio station 2DAY FM before moving to the UK in 2017.
In April, Roman revealed he was too tired to meet girls after getting up early to host his breakfast show.
He said, “I’m too tired to go out on dates – that’s the reality – and girls don’t necessarily want to be with a guy who has an alarm clock as early as mine.
“I have been single for a while. Work is the priority.
Roman’s rep made no comment when contacted by The Sun.
