LBC presenter Steve Allen is allegedly facing calls from his own colleagues to be sacked by the station.
The 67-year-old - part of the LBC lineup since 1979 - has been met with widespread condemnation after he referred to Strictly Come Dancing's Tilly Ramsay, 19, as "a chubby little thing" during his show on Wednesday morning.
The veteran host was on the airwaves as usual in his 4am-7am slot yesterday and today but failed to acknowledge the ongoing row, although The Sun claims that his hand may now be forced as his colleagues want him to go.
"Steve's outdated and archaic comments have been allowed to continue for far too long and plenty of people want him out," one LBC worker told the newspaper.
"There's free speech and then there is calling a teenage girl fat live on the radio. Plenty of people think it's time he was given his marching orders because this isn't the first time he's made unacceptable comments on air and hasn't been reprimanded.
"He should issue an apology at the least - but people want him gone. He's bringing the reputation of the station down."
LBC owner Global has yet to comment on the issue.
