Jamie East hosts the weekday slot between 10am and 1pm on Virgin Radio.
Jamie began his career as singer in punk band The Beekeepers before cutting his teeth in the world of media at Sky.
Whilst at Sky, through sheer boredom, he created Holy Moly in his spare time. Holy Moly went on to become one of the largest and well-known gossip and Entertainment websites in the country and made Jamie an authoritative figure in the world of Celebrity Gossip and Popular Culture.
After selling half of Holy Moly to Endemol in 2011, he was asked to co-present Big Brother’s Bit On The Side with Emma Willis. This has now become Channel 5’s second highest rated programme (Big Brother being the 1st) and so began Jamie’s broadcasting career.
Jamie’s recent projects include presenting Thronecast, the ‘Game of Thrones’ fan show on Sky Atlantic and his alter-ego, The Watercooler, on ITV2’s TVOD.
Jamie is a married father of four with interests in fatherhood, music, celebrity, travel, motorbikes and tattoos, smallholdings and trying to renovate his underground eco house which he bought on a whim a couple of years ago. He remembers sleep, vaguely- like an old friend.
Jamie recently co-hosted Sky Art’s coverage of the Isle of Wight Festival alongside Edith Bowman.
