Company

After 18 years off our screens, Fantasy Football League - the iconic comedy football show blending football fanaticism with celebrity chat - has returned. Originally fronted by the show's creators, David Baddiel and Frank Skinner, the duo have passed the ball to Matt Lucas and Elis James. Comedian and football fanatic Andrew Mensah is on hand to oversee the celebrity league and share weekly funny highlights from the world of football.

Each week, a pair of celebrity guest managers sit on the Fantasy Football League sofa to chat about their love of the beautiful game and reveal personal stories around their diehard football fandom.

Format points include the 'Phoenix From The Flames' segment - where a famous moment from footballing history is recreated with an array of legendary players.
