In surprising news, radio host Andy Lee has confirmed that he’s split from his girlfriend of 18 months, Rebecca Harding.

The 35-year-old admitted that the two were no longer an item on the Hamish & Andy Show on Friday, saying, ‘Bec and I broke up a little while ago.’

The admission came after co-host Hamish Blake began discussing kissing – specifically ‘the slug’, where someone ‘lets their tongue go limp in their mouth and then says “you’ve been slugged”’, to which Andy replied that he didn’t have to worry about that because he was single.

‘I am worried about you because you know that Bec and I broke up a little while ago. And so she was the only one that was going to slug me.’

Bec, 25, hasn’t commented on the break-up, although there has been a notable absence of Andy from her Instagram since early June.
