BBC Sounds to launch Little Mix The Search Podcast
As a lifelong Mixer I've been training for this moment and I'm ready to get all the backstage gossip and find out exactly what it's like to be competing for the gig of a lifetime.Megan Jayne Crabbe
In each of the weekly episodes, influencers and hosts of the podcast Megan Jayne Crabbe aka ‘Bodyposipanda’ and Stephanie Yeboah author of ‘Fattily Ever After’, will be going behind the scenes of Little Mix’s debut reality competition. They’ll be chatting to Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, as they reflect on their own time in a reality competition as well as their new and current experience of mentoring the contestants.
Megan and Stephanie who have a combined Instagram following of over 1.4 million will also catch up with the newly created bands to recap each week’s episode and discuss the highs and lows of the competition as well as the highly anticipated drama each week.
Megan says: “As a lifelong Mixer I've been training for this moment and I'm ready to get all the backstage gossip and find out exactly what it's like to be competing for the gig of a lifetime. I can't wait to chat with Perrie, Jade, Leigh-Anne and Jesy about how it feels to be the ones in the judging seat - the pressure, the excitement, the wardrobe choices... I heard Little Mix were looking for recruits, and I am here to represent. Salute!”
Stephanie says: "I'm excited to be joining Megan and working on this podcast Little Mix The Search on BBC Sounds! As a huge music and talent contest fan, I can't wait to chat about the creative and technical processes behind making a band, and chatting with Little Mix to find out all the behind the scenes action".
