Our latest podcast production commissioned for BBC Radio 1 is with the Essex diva herself, Gemma Collins. The Gemma Collins Podcast takes a look at the life of The GC, with lots of candid chats, laughs and insider gossip.
Gemma also takes on the role of agony aunt to those in need, as she answers listeners’ questions and tackles their life dilemmas each week. Every episode will end on a high as Gemma shares her very best nuggets of wisdom with the world.
Since the launch of the podcast, it has gone straight to the top charts on Apple Podcasts and remained at number 1!
The Guardian chose the podcast as their Pick of the Week and described it as “kind of brilliant – part deadpan ramble, art motivational voice note from a pal, albeit a pal with designs on Hollywood”
Our Head of Content, Adam Uytman says: “Gemma’s podcast promises to be one of the most talked-about podcasts of the year and we are delighted to be part of it. The series will allow fans to hear Gemma as they’ve never heard her before.“
“Reality podcasts are destined to be a huge area of growth, as they are a perfect way to build, engage and retain an audience off screen. Fans can get close to the action in a way they have never been able to before. The nation is developing an extremely healthy appetite for audio-on-demand and we are delighted to be at the forefront of the growth of this really exciting medium.”
Episodes so far have covered Fake Tan Fails, Body Confidence and Life Mottos and A Bad Day and we can’t wait to bring you a whole lot more with a new episode landing on BBC Sounds every Wednesday.
