Heart extra is a national digital radio station owned and operated by Global as part of the Heart network, and broadcasting from studios at Leicester Square in London.

On 2 February 2016 Global announced that Heart Extra would launch on 29 February. The initial line-up included Jenni Falconer, Mark Wright, and Jason Donovan. The station features some presenters from its sister station Heart including Jamie Theakston and Emma Bunton.

Heart Extra was rebranded as "Heart Extra Xmas" with the slogan 'Turn up the festive feel good!' during November and December of 2016 and 2017.

On 14 March 2017, Heart Extra was removed from Sky TV platforms in favour of Heart 80s. Heart Extra will continue on DAB and online as before.

The station broadcasts presenter-free from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. every day. Outside this time, it simulcasts Heart London programming.
