In a video post on both Instagram and Twitter, Charlie said:

"After almost 10 years of dedicating my life to BBC Radio 1Xtra and Radio 1 and achieving everything I set out to I've decided the time has come to leave the BBC and seek a new challenge."

Thanking everyone who has listened to his various shows over the years and those who have supported him, Charlie then reeled off a list of people who helped him within the BBC.

He added:

"I hope my colleagues at 1Xtra and Radio 1 keep up the amazing work, it's been an incredible place to work. I joined the BBC as a boy and I leave as a man.

"Together we have created some moments that will live forever."

Not revealing what his "new challenge" is yet, he simply posted: "Announcement on what's next coming soon."
