The sudden death of the 47-year-old was announced by the corporation on Tuesday.

Clements, a married father-of-two, joined the station last summer, having been the long-time presenter of Q Radio's breakfast show.

His death has prompted an outpouring of tributes across Northern Ireland and beyond.

Having turned Q Radio's breakfast show into one of the most popular programmes in the region, Clements landed what he described as his "dream" job at the BBC last year.

His brother Gavin described him as his "inspiration and hero".
