Guinness Six Nations Championship 2024 | Preview (ITV1)

Mark Pougatch and Jill Douglas lead a star-studded line-up of on-screen talent for ten live clashes in ITV’s coverage of the Guinness 6 Nations Championship 2024.

Following on from the Rugby World Cup which was exclusively screened on ITV1 and ITVX in the Autumn, the channel will show ten live matches throughout the six weeks of the Six Nations.

They include mouth-watering clashes like the opener France v Ireland on February 2 in Marseille, England v Wales on February 10, England v Ireland on March 9, and a final weekend featuring Ireland v Scotland from Dublin and then France v England in Lyon, on March 16.

This year's tournament marks the latest in a deal between ITV and the BBC that sees Six Nations matches shared between both broadcasters on television and online with ITV's matches aired on ITV1, ITVX, STV, STV Player, and UTV.

Mark and Jill will be joined by England World Cup winners Jonny Wilkinson, Lawrence Dallaglio, and Maggie Alphonsi, former England back Ugo Monye, former Ireland captain Brian O’Driscoll, fellow former Irish skipper Rory Best, Welsh legends Jamie Roberts and Dan Biggar.

Plus former Scotland and Lions coach Sir Ian McGeechan, former Scottish international Johnnie Beattie, Italy great Sergio Parisse, and former French forward Benjamin Kayser.

Topsy Ojo will combine presenting duties with his role as reporter, alongside reporter Gabriel Clarke. Joining them with a wealth of experience in the commentary box will be Nick Mullins and Miles Harrison, plus co-commentators Shane Williams, Gordon D’Arcy, Ben Kay, Scott Hastings, David Flatman and Danielle Waterman.

Each match will be simulcast live on ITVX and viewers can watch short highlights of every match from the tournament on ITV Rugby's social media accounts (via X, Facebook and instagram), which will also help bring the tournament to life with near-live clips and interviews.
