Ric Blaxill, music and content director at Bauer-owned Heat, said: “If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be a fly on the wall of a conversation with an A-lister, then this show is going to be un-missable.”

Seacrest added: “It’s a privilege to bring On Air with Ryan Seacrest to listeners in the UK. Heat is an amazing multi-platform entertainment brand and I think it will be a perfect match for our program. Thanks to everyone at heat – I can’t wait to bring our program across the pond.”

On Air with Ryan Seacrest, which will also feature Ellen K, launches on August 4 and will be on-air weekdays from 1-4pm.
