PREVIEW: Question Of Sport, BBC One

Paddy McGuiness takes over from Sue Barker on the BBC panel show, whilst Hockey player Sam Quek and Rugby pundit Ugo Monye become new team captains.



Paddy said "I love the fiercely competitive nature of sports stars coupled with having a laugh. That’s why A Question of Sport has always been one of my favourite shows and having been weaned on it from an early age, this is an honour and opportunity I’m certainly not taking lightly...



He continued: "I grew up with both David's hosting but it’s Sue who made this show her own. She will always be A Question of Sport icon, but I’ll try my best to stamp my own mark on it."


In the first episode of the new series, they are joined by four stars of the Tokyo Olympics: triathlete Georgia Taylor-Brown, diver Matty Lee, weightlifter Emily Campbell and champion boxer Lauren Price.


Question Of Sport returns Friday 4th September on BBC One.
