A QUESTION OF SPORT AXED BY BBC AFTER 50 YEARS ON AIR

The BBC has called time on long-running sports based panel series A Question Of Sport after more than 50 years on air.



The series was recently refreshed in 2021 by the BBC with new host Paddy McGuiness and team captains Sam Quek and Ugo Monye. The trio joined the series after the BBC controversially sacked previous host Sue Barker and team captains from the series.



A BBC spokesperson said: "Due to inflation and funding challenges difficult decisions have to be made, therefore Question of Sport is currently not in production at the moment."




An insider added to The Mirror: "We have to provide value for money to licence fee payers and prioritise high impact content that drives viewers to BBC iPlayer. So, for now, Question of Sport is taking a break and there are no current plans for its return."


Previous episodes of A Question Of Sport are available on BBC iPlayer.
