Rumours have been rife.

Lottie Ryan has responded to claims she’s leaving RTÉ 2FM after rumours surfaced earlier this week.

She confirmed that she isn’t going anywhere but will no longer be working on Drive.

However, she stressed that this was always the plan for her.

In a statement on Instagram, Lottie confirmed that she was only ever going to cover the show for a short-term.

“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.

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

“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 a part of 2FM. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with the incredible Drive team and it’s been an absolute joy working with such amazing people,” she added”

Lottie’s statement comes after Donncha O’Callaghan announced he was leaving the 2FM Breakfast Show.
