BBC One Show host Roman Kemp says Jubilee Party guests were kicked out ‘like they were in a nightclub’

Roman Kemp has revealed how attendees of a ‘royal afterparty’ event during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations ended the evening on an unexpected note. Alex Jones welcomed his guest co-presenter to The One Show on the couch on Thursday and congratulated him on his “very busy weekend”. And indeed, the weekend was busy for the young host, who led the Platinum Party at the Palace.

Roman, who was grinning from ear to ear, told Alex how he was able to attend a “royal after party” after the event. Stunned, Alex said, “Wait, what? With the royal family? and he confirmed that they were present. He said: “The best thing about it was at the end of a party at Buckingham Palace, you would expect them to get everyone out slowly and carefully. They just turned on the lights.

The Capital Breakfast presenter, 29, compared the treatment he received at Buckingham Palace to his nightclub experiences back home in London. “It’s the exact same thing they do at Destiny nightclub in Watford,” he told an amused Alex. “End of the night, you’re out!”
