BBC bosses have 'axed' A Question Of Sport trio Sue Barker, Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell. The show will return with a new team after the new series ends.

A BBC spokesman said: "We would like to thank Sue for her enormous contribution as the show's longest-reigning host over the last 23 years, and Matt and Phil for their excellent team captaincy over 16 and 12 years respectively. Together they have ensured A Question Of Sport remains a firm favourite with the BBC One audience. Sue, Matt and Phil's final series will be broadcast next year before the series returns with a new team."

A source told the Daily Star on Sunday: “The show has been on for a long time and the producers think it’s time to give it a new look. Sue, Matt and Tuffers have been so popular, so the producers are aware they will have big shoes to fill. With the 50th anniversary this year they thought it would be a good time to revamp things.”
