We’ve seen Chrissie on our screens and heard her on our radios for decades now, with her having made her start in the world of entertainment on reality show Big Brother in 2003.

And whilst we’re used to listening to Chrissie’s witty humour and hilarious stories on her Nova radio show The Chrissie Swan Show, now fans will be given a more personal and candid glimpse into her life.

“It’s happening! I have been working on this for 6 months! My VERY OWN PODCAST – recorded in my very own home (who ever wants to leave the house? Not moi),” she told her fans in an Instagram post.

The ChrissieCast will premiere on 30 April and two episodes will be released per week on Tuesdays and Fridays.

On Tuesdays Chrissie will be joined by a “rotating cast of 4 beloved and funny friends… (stay tuned for these you will love!)”.

On Fridays, “an interesting person from anywhere in the world” will be accompanying Chrissie on the podcast.

She added: “Topics discussed so far: fidelity to oneself, dugongs, scrunchies made of polyester hair, the Darrel Lea family story, can men and women be just friends… you get the idea! I am beside myself and am having the time of my life.”
