Speaking to The Sun Online ahead of this evening's show he said: "I think Brooklyn Beckham and I are the only ones who really understand what it’s like to have a dad so good looking.

"Who wants to hear 'Oh your dad is so fit!'?"

He admitted it's hard to find a girl who DOESN'T think his father is hot: "If they are like the rest of the 90 percent of the population, they will fancy my dad, and they tell me!"

But the 24-year-old did have idea to put to potential suitors: "What my theory is, if you marry me, there is always a chance that I’ll turn out looking like my dad!"

Speaking about how he meets women, Roman says he likes to use dating apps to "filter out the bad", although he did reveal that a "few had slipped through the net".

Roman revealed that his early starts, due to hosting a breakfast show, often dampen his love life, he said: "If you want to point me in the direction of a girl that wants to wake up at 4.50am and wants to go to bed at 9pm, please do!"

Tonight viewers will see if he is successful when he is matched up with a potential love interest in the First dates restaurant.

The early morning starts might be taking a bit of used to, but Roman is relishing being at the helm of the station's flagship show.

He's already interviewed the likes of Harry Styles and Katy Perry.

Speaking in May he told us: “It’s been amazing, it’s been an honour,” said Roman. “It’s weird for me because my first experience of radio was listening to Capital with Chris Tarrant on the way to school with my mum.

“I wanted to bring what we were already trying to achieve (with the evening show). My producer is my best mate, he’s come with me and with the current breakfast team it’s like creating a supergroup.

“It’s almost like going the next year up at school. It’s like you’re with all your mates still doing the same stuff but its just a bit harder, you’ve got more responsibility.”
