The show will be informative as well as offering the expected thrills and giggles, as Rylan shares his insight into the entertainment industry with the stars who have supported him since he shot to fame on The X Factor.
A source told The Sun: “Rylan’s new podcast is really exciting and is giving him a real trip down memory lane.
“He will be speaking with people who were integral parts of his journey.
“Rylan appeared on Katie Price’s TV show Signed at the start of his telly career and she has agreed to be one of his guests.”
Other guests reportedly signed up include X Factor star Cher Lloyd, who took on the show two years before Rylan in 2010.
The source added: “It’s going to be a really uplifting and fun series and will give fans even more insight into Rylan and his background.”
