Captial FM presenter Roman Kemp, who just landed a major gig hosting the BRIT Awards,  has a close relationship with his famous dad, the actor and singer Martin Kemp of 80s pop band Spandau Ballet.

Martin is married to Shirlie Kemp of Pepsi & Shirlie fame, and they also have a daughter, Harley Moon.

We often see Roman and his dad working together on TV – the pair co-hosted Martin and Roman's Weekend Best! in 2020 and have appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox together. Fans adore their funny banter and endearing bond.

Roman recently told HELLO!: "My dad and I get to work with each other all the time and I'm so lucky for that," he said.

"The reason we work together is because I know how much I'm going to love my kids and my family watching that footage of me and their grandad working together - and that's just our relationship."

While Martin previously told us: “We love spending time together, you know. It's such a pleasure to do all of those shows. It's not like going to work, it's like hanging out with my boy."

We’ve rounded up some of Martin and Roman’s best father-son bonding moments below…
