Lottie Ryan has released a statement about her future on 2FM.

She had been announced as the new host of Drivetime alongside David O’Reilly earlier this summer.

However, it was then reported that she was being “replaced” on the show by TikTok star Kayleigh Trappe.

Now Lottie has cleared up any rumours about her position with the broadcaster.

“I wanted to clear up some recent headlines about my role at 2FM. When it was announced that I would be taking over Drive, it was always agreed between myself and my bosses that this would be for a five-week stint,” she explained on Instagram.

“The term ‘summer schedule’ has led to some confusion, implying a 12-week duration.

“To clarify – the plan was always for a short-term cover, and I knew this from the start. The phrase ‘summer schedule’ has led to all this confusion. I’m not going anywhere and am very much part of 2FM.

She has yet to confirm when she would finish up on the show.

However, rumours have claimed that she will be signing off this week.

Donncha O’Callaghan has also announced that he would be leaving the station at the start of July.
