For Series 4 of Love Island, ITV were keen to launch a daily podcast to support the series. Working with Rubber Chicken, we tendered for the work and against a number of production companies, we were successful with our bid.
Apple Podcasts crowned the show ‘the most downloaded new podcast of 2018’ and the company announced the show had delivered over 3million downloads during the series run.
The show was recorded at Folder’s HQ six nights a week, where we brought together the hosts – Arielle Free and Kem Cetinay alongside evicted islanders and celebrity guests.
A significant production, the team included writers, guests bookers, producers, assistants and executive producers. Recorded after the show aired, at 10pm each night, we edited until late into the evening, complied the material with ITV and then had it published and ready to go for people’s phones when they woke up.
