Danny Baker to present twice a week podcast

Fresh from being axed by BBC Radio 5 Live following a tweet about the Royal Family, Danny Baker has announced new plans for a podcast.

He’s tweeted that his stand-alone podcast will feature all the old firm and even the Sausage Sandwich Game when it starts in around six months time.

Danny says he wants callers, emails and bizarre subjects on the show.

He was sacked from his Saturday morning slot on BBC Radio 5 Live in May after posting an image showing a clothed chimpanzee holding hands with a couple, along with the caption ‘Royal Baby leaves hospital’. He quickly deleted the tweet after accusations it was racist, but screengrabs been shared widely on social media and used by the national press.

Danny has hosted many podcasts before, including a football one with Gary Lineker in 2018.
