Random Rewind: Play To The Whistle, ITV

Random Rewind: we look back at some the best, and occasionally worst, entertainment shows from the past decade.

Play To The Whistle

2015, ITV

Play To The Whistle was a ITV panel show hosted by Holly Willoughby, which ran for three series from 2015-17.

Each episode sees two teams of three celebrities play a series of sports-based general knowledge rounds and physical games to score points for their team.

The two regular team captains were Bradley Walsh and Frank Lampard. Comedians Romesh Ranganathan and Seann Walsh joined the show as regular panellist and resident point scorer respectively.

The show was cancelled after three series due to low ratings. The first series averaged 2.5m in a Saturday night slot, which fell to 1.6m in a Tuesday 9pm slot for its third and final series.
