Two new celebrity culture podcasts launch on BBC Sounds

Stacey Dooley, Larry Dean, Jack Remmington and Sarel discuss celebrity culture in two new podcasts on BBC Sounds.

Famously… In Love will be hosted by presenters Jack Remmington and Sarel, who will be focusing on celebrity love stories and dilemmas. Jack and Sarel will seek to uncover the truth behind some of the most PR-quaffed, loved-up content and ask burning questions.

Jack Remmington says: “I am beyond excited to be co-hosting Famously…In Love: from cheating scandals to torrid affairs, and the highs and lows of some of the most well-documented relationships in the public eye. As someone who is obsessed with pop culture, the chance to be involved with this podcast has been a total joy.

“To be hosting a BBC Sounds podcast and doing it alongside Sarel is a real pinch me moment and I can’t wait for everyone to join us as we delve into the complicated world of love in the spotlight.”

Sarel adds: “I love looking at the world of celebrities! The gossip and the scandals keep us pop culture lovers invested! Listeners can expect real opinions and truth bombs as Jack and I dissect some of the best known love stories and tales of heartbreak!”

Famously… On Trial sees presenter Stacey Dooley and comedian Larry Dean team up to put celebrities ‘in the dock’ to discuss their most-famous court cases and controversies. As part of this new weekly podcast, Stacey and Larry delve into the biggest celebrity dramas, legal cases and pop culture controversies.

Stacey says: “The internet pores forensically over celebrity controversies in and outside the courtroom, holding them to account by trial of public opinion.

“With increasingly savvy social media users with immediate access to footage, audio and other evidence from the courtroom, we all live these cases in real time, and the public voice is louder than ever when any controversy is in the spotlight.

“Sometimes, the verdicts reached in the press or on social media are where someone’s fate is truly decided.

“Larry and I are delighted to be delving into some of the most well-known cases! It’s such a treat to sit alongside one another and properly flesh out what ends up being important, broader topics more generally. Judge Judy is shaaaaaking I’m sure!”

Larry adds: “So excited to be working with Stacey on this podcast, it’s going to be loads of fun. Stacey’s got an investigative background, so she’s perfectly placed to lay out each story’s detail, delivering the case and asking the tough questions.

“And since she’s great company to be around, it will be a good laugh. I will attempt to decipher who really won – as I’m pretty out of touch with celebrity culture, I should be able to give a totally objective view. Somehow being under-qualified qualifies me to judge!”

From BBC Radio 5 Live, Famously… In Love is available weekly from 18 June and Famously… On Trial is available weekly from 20 June on BBC Sounds.
