Jeremy Vine, Channel 5’s morning news and current affairs programme, is home to the nation’s liveliest conversation from 9.15am-11.15am each day. Exploring key themes, great moments and reacting to breaking news on the morning, the programme also hears directly from the public, enabling them to have their voice heard.
Jeremy Vine Extra, which launched in 2022, has also been renewed for one year as part of the deal with ITN. The programme follows Jeremy Vine and runs for 90 minutes to 12.45pm each day. Jeremy Vine Extra will continue to be hosted by Storm Huntley, who co-hosts on Jeremy Vine.
Across 2022, Jeremy Vine and Jeremy Vine Extra reached 13.3m viewers with the show holding a strong share of individuals with kids (6.5% during 2022). In 2022, 5 News at 17:00 reached 19.2m people in the UK, up from 15.5m in 2021, partially aided by the increase from a 30 minute to 1 hour time slot in November 2021.
