A comedy panel show for Sky1 with the focus firmly on sport.
A League Of Their Own takes its cue from sporting obsession and sets two teams of comedians, celebrities and sports stars against each other in a test of their sporting knowledge. From record breaking feats to headline grabbing events, the show is stuffed with the kind of sensational take home facts that sports fans just love to quote.
The show tackles questions like - "which footballers spent the most on their wedding?" and "Can you arrange David James' haircuts in chronological order?"
Across a number of rounds, the teams' sporting knowledge is put to the ultimate test. A League Of Their Own takes its cue from sports fans' obsession with lists and stats and the first round sees the teams arrange three possible answers into their order of preference.
Regular rounds include 'Guest List', in which the teams must come up with the same answers a famous sports star has given in response to a question about their profession; and 'Human Clock', the ultimate test of knowledge and stamina: the team must answer as many questions correctly as is possible in the time that one or more of them can endure a tough physical challenge.
It's red v blue, Redknapp v Flintoff, and no one wants to be on the losing side. Who'll have the last laugh and claim victory, proving they're truly in a league of their own?
In Series 5, Jack Whitehall joined the blue team as a regular panellist as Georgie Thompson reduced her appearances (due to her Formula 1 hosting duties), as did John Bishop (due to other filming commitments).
Series 10: 8 more episodes have been filmed, to be shown later in the year. This new tenth outing will see the teams tackle a range of activities as they prove, once again, they really are in a league of their own.
American Road Trip: Also coming up later in the year is this three-part special. The four boys head stateside on the trip of a lifetime. James is also a star in the US these days, so when Jamie, Freddie and Jack head across the Atlantic to be reunited with their mate, they embark on an all-American boys adventure.
James has planned a 1,000-mile road trip for his pals as he challenges them to travel from Los Angeles to Las Vegas via San Francisco and Yosemite Valley in the ALOTO RV. Along the way, the trio will take in the stunning scenery, as well as undertaking a number of typically American activities with points being awarded to the winner and a nerve-jangling forfeit in store for the loser. As the boys do (friendly) battle on the ultimate bonding experience, they'll be reunited with James in Sin City for an unforgettable finale to their trip.
