FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE: MATT LUCAS AND ELIS JAMES TO PILOT REVIVAL FOR SKY

Sky are to pilot a revived version of Fantasy Football League with comedians Matt Lucas and Elis James, according to reports from The Sun.



Fantasy Football League began as a comedy programme on BBC Two, fronted by comedians David Baddiel and Frank Skinner. It ran on the BBC from 1994-96 before moving to ITV for specials in 1998 and 2004.



Each episode saw a variety of celebrity guests talk football, as well as taking part in comedic sketches and competing as managers as they formed their 'fantasy league'.


A source told The Sun: "Fantasy Football is one of the most iconic football shows ever and there’s been a hugely vocal demand for its return for several years. Sky believe their version can do it justice and eventually spark a full-on series. It will be very much in the mould of the original with a few modern tweaks."
