is losing sleep over what he’s going to wear to host the Platinum Party at the Palace.
The Capital Breakfast host is set to at in on Saturday and he’s stressed about striking the balance between the formality of a royal celebration and still ‘being fun’
‘My main concern is what I’m going to wear,’ Roman admitted. ‘Like, you can’t dress informal because at the end of the day, it’s a gig so you still want to be fun, but at the same time you can’t be over the top and ridiculous.
‘Like, do I wear a hat? Is that a thing? The only royal events I see, they’ve all got hats on!’
Roman’s wardrobe concern is understandable because the last time he filmed at Queen Elizabeth’s official residence, he was criticised for not wearing a tie – but he exclaimed things could have been much worse.
‘I always somehow make an idiot of myself around Buckingham Palace and the royal family anyway because the last time I went there I turned up in a tracksuit!’ he shared.
‘We were filming ‘The One Show.’ I had no idea that I was going to do the link to Buckingham Palace.
‘The car starts going towards the Palace and it dawns on me what’s happened. I’m not doing a story about Buckingham Palace on The One Show, I’m doing a story about Buckingham Palace at Buckingham Palace!’
Roman continued to Bang Showbiz: ‘So, I’ve arrived and I’ve had to borrow the guard’s stuff. Like, I don’t know – a room where it’s like lost property. But I’ve ended up the lost property of the guards at Buckingham Palace.
‘So, as long as it doesn’t go like that, I’ll be okay. Who knew there was a wide selection of clothes at the Palace for everyone?
‘Everyone on Twitter was like “Why has he not worn a tie?” but it was better than a tracksuit!’
Roman will host the BBC’s coverage of the gig alongside Kirsty Young and they’ll welcome some of the biggest names in music from across the UK.
