STAR of TV Dermot O'Leary announced the name of his newborn son live on air as he returned to his regular radio show.

Colchester-born O'Leary returned to his BBC 2 Radio Show ten days after his wife Dee Koppang, 41, gave birth to the couple's first child.

Sharing the soundtrack to his wife's labour, he said: "My lovely son came into the world ten days ago accompanied by Guy Garvey's Elbow.

"So forgive this moment of brief self-indulgence while we play the song that accompanied that.

He added: "So, this is for you Kasper with a K... my wife is very insistent on that."

He shouted: "Kasper Koppang O'Leary welcome to the world", before playing Elbow's song One Day Like This.
