BBC Radio Ulster presenter Stephen Clements has died suddenly at age 47.

He was a married father-of -two.

The broadcaster had presented the mid-morning Stephen Clements Show on the station since September.

BBC Northern Ireland Director Peter Johnston said: “We are sorry to bring you the sad news of the passing of our colleague Stephen Clements.

“Our thoughts are with Stephen’s family, friends and colleagues, at this difficult time.”

Mr Clements began his radio presenting career on Citybeat, before hosting Q Radio’s Breakfast Show for seven years.

He co-presented the BBC NI TV series Open for Summer during the Open Golf Championship in Portrush in 2019.

He also co-hosted BBC Northern Ireland’s Children in Need programme in November 2019 with Holly Hamilton.

Mr Clements took over Radio Ulster’s mid-morning programme from veteran presenter Sean Coyle in September 2019, saying it had always been his “dream” to work for the BBC.

He is survived by his wife and two children.
