ESSEX FM DJs Martin Day and Su Harrison have returned to their breakfast slot amid speculation that their "suspension" was a publicity stunt.

The breakfast DJs were back on in their usual slot.

Meanwhile, the station's programme director has denied taking the DJs off-air was a publicity stunt.

Chris Cotton refuted the suggestion made by some listeners that their removal had been a publicity stunt.

He also denied their show had been pulled after comments made about scouts and condoms, but would not reveal the issue that led to the show being off air for three days.

Mr Cotton said: "We have managed to resolve the issue and Martin and Su will be back on the air tomorrow. It was the outcome we'd hoped for so it is a good outcome for us."
