Former Radio 1 DJ Mark Goodier has suffered a stroke, his production company said.

Goodier - who presented the Sunday night chart show for around 10 years until 2002 - is recovering at home following the illness at the beginning of November.

An out of office reply to his email address at production company Wisebuddah said: “Thank you for your email.

“I am away from work for a time recovering from a stroke and so not seeing email every day.”

The 55-year-old is receiving “excellent” medical attention and expected to return to work before the end of December, Wisebuddah said.

Goodier’s recovery means he is unable to record the voiceover for a television advert for Now 95 - a job he has done since Now 20 was released in 1991.

The advert will be voiced by Xtra Factor’s Matt Edmonson in his place.
