REPORTS: Former footballer Alex Scott is poised to replace Sue Barker as the host of A Question Of Sport, following the news that the current trio have been dropped from the programme. More information on this can be found here.
A source told The Sun: "Alex is being lined up as host, as a direct replacement for Sue. Like Sue, she’s a former sportswoman and she also has five years of broadcasting under her belt. She’s a natural on camera and, crucially, lives and breathes all things sport."
They continued: "This has nothing to do with gender, nor is it a case of the BBC trying to be woke. While a lot can happen over the next three months, as things stand Alex is genuinely considered the best woman for the job."
