Radio presenter Simon Jupp stands for parliament

Former BBC Radio Solent, Radio Plymouth and Radio Exe presenter Simon Jupp is standing for parliament in East Devon.

Until the election was called, the 34-year old was a special advisor to Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, a job he took this summer which then prevented him hosting programmes on Radio Exe, where he’d been an occasional freelance presenter.

Mr Jupp has also been a reporter for ITV and BBC radio, and a full-time presenter on the commercial radio station in his home city, Radio Plymouth.

Wishing him luck on Twitter, outgoing MP Sir Hugo Swire said that he’s delighted with the choice: “Mr Jupp is a Devon man who has been at the heart of national politics already and is well qualified to represent the interests of my former constituents.”
