Channel 4 today announced an exclusive deal with The Rest is Politics podcast.

In the run up to the general election, Alastair Campbell and Rory Stewart will make six episodes to be shown on the channel.

The first episode will go out on Channel 4 and Channel 4 streaming on Wednesday 29th May at 11.05pm, with subsequent episodes being broadcast each Tuesday at 11.10pm up until the week of election day.

“I’m really looking forward to bringing the podcast to life on TV with Alastair live on Channel 4,” Rory said.

“Hopefully we can still disagree agreeably even in the heat of the electoral madness.”

Alastair Campbell added: “The success and continuing growth of The Rest Is Politics podcast has shown there is a huge appetite for serious sensible debate and on what promises to be one of the most important and exciting election nights in many a year I am delighted that Rory Stewart and I will be part of Channel 4’s coverage.”

The election will be held on Thursday 4th July 2024 with live overnight coverage on Channel 4.
