PREVIEW: A League Of Their Own (Series 16), Sky One

Comedian and regular panellist Romesh Ranganathan will take over full time presenting duties on the next series of A League Of Their Own.



Longstanding team captains Freddie Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp return to go head to head again this summer. Guests this year include FA Cup winner Jamie Vardy, Olympic Gold Medallist Denise Lewis, football pundit Micah Richards, comedian Jo Brand, golfing star Andrew ‘beef ’ Johnson and heptathlete Katarina Johnson-Thompson with plenty more stars from the world of sports and entertainment to be announced.



Speaking via the Daily Star, Romesh said: "I’m over the moon to be taking over the hosting duties and looking forward to being back in the studio with Jamie, Freddie, our guests and the live audience...


He continued: "I’m truly honoured to be the new host of such a successful show. I know Jamie and Freddie are delighted because they often talk about what a hero I am to both of them."


Jamie added: "The beautiful thing with A League of Their Own is that people don’t leave it… they just go away for a while to do other projects. I still speak to James a lot and he loves the show. So I am sure he will come back. The show is successful and he always says, ‘You never leave a hit’. He’s hoping to come back at some point."


A League Of Their Own returns Thursday 19th August at 9pm on Sky One.
