Dancing On Ice’s Sonny Jay dedicating this weekend’s skate to late producer after his sudden death in lockdown


DANCING On Ice's Sonny Jay will dedicate Sunday night's semi-final skate to his late friend Joe Lyons.

Sonny and his Capital colleagues were left devastated last year when their friend, known as Producer Joe, died suddenly in lockdown.

Now the DJ will pay tribute to his late pal, with an emotional routine.

Writing on Instagram today, he posted: "When I started Dancing On Ice. The ONE skate I really wanted to do was skate to 'Sweet Disposition - Tempter Trap' for Joe.

"I'm so grateful I get to actually do it for him and all of us that have lost him."

After Joe's death last year, Capital DJ Roman Kemp paid a tearful tribute on air.

Choking up, the emotional star said: "We wanted to share some really sad news. I never thought I’d have to do this ever.

"Last Tuesday, very suddenly, we lost one of our best friends. Our producer Joe, he was a member of the Capital Breakfast family. 

"We are trying to process this all together. We wanted to share this news with you.

He continued: "Joe had worked for Global, the parent company, for nine years.

"He was the very first person I met when I walked through the door. I remember thinking he was a bit of a Del Boy.

"He was with me right from my very first show. He taught me everything I didn't know about sitting in a radio studio without him."

Roman also got a tattoo on his leg in Joe's memory.
