Adam Hills: Grow Another Foot | Preview (Channel 4)

Channel 4 have commissioned Adam Hills: Grow Another Foot, a 1x60' documentary produced by Noah Media Group and hosted by The Last Leg presenter and comedian Adam Hills.



The one-off programme will see Adam, was born with only one foot and who's always dreamt of emulating his Rugby League heroes, get the chance of a lifetime to play rugby at an international level. In 2022, that dream became reality with the first ever Physical Disability Rugby League World Cup.



Before Adam could give his all on the pitch, he had a decision to make. Should he pull on the green and gold of Australia…or join his regular rugby family who make up the England team? After an agonising choice, Adam faced a tournament of hard-hitting rugby mayhem, one which tested his limits further than ever before.


Adam Hills: Grow Another Foot follows the success of his first documentary Take His Legs, which first aired in 2019. The documentary saw Hills enter the world of Physical Disability Rugby League and saw Adam help establish the sport of PDRL with his team at Warrington Wolves.



Adam Hills said: "I’ve loved Rugby League ever since I was a kid, but the thought of playing it at an international level seemed impossible. So when the opportunity came to take part in the first ever Physical Disability World Cup, I jumped at it with one foot and a prosthesis...


"I played the game I love, made mates for life, and had the experience of a lifetime. I grew another foot, and I can’t wait for people to see the hits, the laughs and the characters of Physical Disability Rugby League."



Channel 4's Will Rowson said: "Adam’s enthusiasm for Rugby League is infectious and even if, like me, you know nothing about the sport this is a pretty irresistible story about friendship and endeavour that just makes me smile throughout."


More details will be announced in due course.
