A comedy panel show for Sky One 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 6 proved to be John's last series, and Jack Whitehall quit after Series 12, to be replaced by Romesh Ranganathan.
From Series 14, Corden was busy with his American chat show so guest hosts started to be drafted in. Series 15 was filmed during coronavirus lockdown, and - with Corden unable to fly over - Romesh Ranganathan took on the host's role.
