Channel 4 and The Rest is Politics have struck a first-of-its-kind deal that will see episodes of the smash hit podcast air on the network in the run up to the general election.

Rest is Politics hosts Rory Stewart and Alastair Campbell are already going to be part of Channel 4’s general election night coverage and the deal deepens the relationship.

The first episode will go out on Channel 4 and Channel 4 streaming next Wednesday late at night, with subsequent episodes being broadcast each Tuesday up until the week of election day, which takes place on July 4. On that night, Campbell and Stewart are part of a team featuring the likes of Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Emily Maitlis and Cathy Newman. Clare Balding – who had previously been announced as part of the line-up – will not be able to join the studio team due to Wimbledon commitments, and her replacement will be announced in due course.
