Jamie East: “The launch and subsequent success of this podcast has been fantastic.”

The Mail says its lineup of shows continues to grow ever longer with the return of its podcast ‘The Trial’ with a new twist on courtroom drama. Plus, following Spencer Matthews, Gemma Collins has become the next big name to open up in ‘Everything I Know About Me’.

In November 1974, British aristocrat Richard John Bingham, otherwise known as Lord Lucan, became the prime suspect in the murder of his children’s nanny, Sandra Rivett. He vanished soon after the incident, sparking one of the most sensational manhunts in British history and as a result, has never faced judge and jury. It’s the Trial that never happened…until now, added the Mail.

Using exclusive, never-before-seen documents and testimony, Caroline Cheetham, Stephen Wright and some of the world’s most revered legal minds take part in a week-long audio event to determine Lucan’s fate.

Head of Podcasts, Jamie East, said: “The launch and subsequent success of this podcast has been fantastic. We hit #1 on the podcast charts in less than 18 hours, which for a podcast containing no influencers and no celebrity confessionals, just a 50-year-old unsolved murder and some brilliant journalism, goes to show that great storytelling and reporting is still a fundamental part of what readers and listeners want – and nobody does that better than the Mail.”

The Mail says the latest guest on ‘Everything I Know About Me’ is Gemma Collins. She takes us on a journey through her upbringing and rise to fame, covering the highs, the lows and the unexpected in-betweens, all in her own words across five gripping episodes. Revealing some harrowing parts of her story never heard until now, this will be one of the most in-depth accounts Gemma has ever given of her life thus far, added the publisher.
