News UK launches Jungle VIP daily podcast from Wireless Studios

PRESS RELEASE — November 20, 2018

Wireless Studios​​, part of Wireless - the audio division of News UK and home to Virgin, talkRADIO and talkSPORT, as well as a raft of local radio stations - has unveiled a brand new daily podcast to celebrate the new season of ​I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here​.

Presented by Jamie East, Sun film critic and host of Reality Check and talkFILM podcasts, Jungle VIP​​ is ​the​ podcast for fans in need of their daily dose of behind-the-scenes commentary and gossip from the Celebrity Jungle.

Jamie will be joined by a line-up of star-studded ex-Jungle campmates, including ​Vicki Michelle​​, ​Annabel Giles​​ and ​Danielle Lloyd​​ to reveal what Jungle life is really like. They’ll be giving the insider story on everything from digesting the latest Bushtucker trial to whether there’s ​really a​ caravan round the back doing bacon sandwiches.

Jungle VIP​​ launched with the start of the new series of ​I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here this week - and a new half-hour episode will be available every morning right up to the moment the new King or Queen of the Jungle is crowned on December 8.

Consumers can access the podcast - and get every episode delivered straight to their device each morning - by ​subscribing on iTunes and acast​.

Jamie​ ​​says “My favourite three weeks are here and this time, I’m recording every thought, frustration and retch! I can’t wait to see what Holly and Dec put Noel and the gang through for the benefit of our entertainment - almost certainly his Deal or No Deal will be far more fun than the one we’re facing back home. I want to see them suffer, squirm and scream - BRING IT ON!”

Produced by ​Wireless Studios​​, the Jungle VIP podcast will be supported by The Sun as well as through online advertising and through the Wireless portfolio of independent local radio stations.

Matt Hall​​, Wireless Head of On-demand Audio adds: “On-demand audio is an area of huge potential for Wireless and I’m a Celebrity is the perfect vehicle for us to develop a podcast format to add expert insight, timely analysis and immense fun to the Jungle experience.”
