    Roman Kemp has reportedly found love again with his radio colleague Codie Jones.

    The Capital radio host, 28, is said to be ‘quietly dating’ Australian radio producer Codie, with the pair having bonded over their best friend Joe Lyons’ death.

    The couple have apparently been seeing each other for ‘over a month’ and it’s reported that Codie has even met Roman’s famous parents Martin and Shirlie, with it being said that they are ‘head over heels’ for each other.

    Roman previously dated model Anne-Sophie Flury, with the couple splitting in July 2020 after three years together. 

    And now it appears that love is in the air for the I’m A Celebrity star once more, with Codie and Roman having grown close amid the tragic loss of their mutual friend Joe, who died suddenly in August 2020. 

    A source told The Sun: ‘Both Roman and Codie worked with Joe and were very close to him, so his death hit them both extremely hard.

    ‘They got closer and ended up falling for each other. They’ve been dating a while now – it’s clear to everyone at work that they’re head over heels for each other.’

    The insider added: ‘Codie met Roman’s parents Martin and Shirlie before they started dating so they already loved her. She’s fitted right in with the family.’

    MailOnline have contacted representative of Roman for comment.

    Codie previously worked on 2DAY FM, an Australian radio station, before relocating to the UK in  2017. 

    In July last year, Roman split from his girlfriend Anne-Sophie Flury after three years , with sources claiming their relationship went downhill after being ‘unable to make things work’ during lockdown. 

    The couple only moved in together in January of that year but things went downhill during lockdown and they ‘weren’t able to make things work’.

    The TV star was linked to model Lottie Moss in August, just three weeks after his break up, with the pair said to have enjoyed a ‘boozy’ night out. 

    Last month Roman paid tribute to the late radio producer Joe, who died by suicide last year, on what would have been his 32nd birthday. 

    Taking to Instagram, the I’m A Celeb star shared pictures and videos of his late friend and admitted: ‘I miss you beyond words.’ 

    Two of the photographs saw Roman and Joe sitting next to each other on a flight, with the radio producer pretending to pour vodka into Roman’s mouth while he slept.

    Another snap showed Joe smiling while sitting outside in the sunshine and flashing a peace sign at the camera, during a group gathering.

    One video saw Roman blast Joe with a wind machine, while the other showed the Capital FM team having presented Joe with a pink cake on a previous birthday. 

    Roman joked alongside his post: ‘On what I would’ve said was your 40th birthday, I miss you beyond words pal. Love you mate. @producerjoe @joesbuddyline.’

    Joking about one of the photos in which Joe can be seen wearing a Tottenham Hotspur FC shirt, he added: ‘PS this is the only time I will post a Spurs shirt.’  

    Roman’s best friend Joe, who had been a well-loved producer at Global radio for nine years, suddenly died in August last year.

    After Joe’s death, Roman emotionally addressed fans on his show Sunday Best, which he co-hosts with his father Martin Kemp, urging them to ‘reach out’.

    Paying tribute to Joe, he said: ‘Before we can start with our usual show, you may have read that it’s been an incredibly hard week for me personally, as I lost my best friend…  

    ‘It has completely devastated his family, friends, me, my family. I really want to make sure that I use this time right now to say if you are struggling, then please know that you can reach out…

    ‘There is always someone you can talk to: your family, friends, colleagues… or anyone from the support charities that are out there… 

    ‘At ITV there is the mental wellness initiative called Britain Get Talking, which encourages all of us to reach out and talk to someone.’
