John Humphrys has said he fears life after the Today programme but feels he "should have gone years ago".

The veteran BBC broadcaster has worked on the Radio 4 current affairs show for 32 years and despite his love for Today believes he should have quit earlier in his career.

Humphrys (75) said the show has dominated his life and left little room for other ambitions.

He said: "I love doing the programme, I have always enjoyed it, always loved it. And I still (do), that's the problem.

"I should have gone years ago, obviously I should have gone years ago, but I love doing the programme."
