Sky Max will air Got Got Need, a series in which Jack Whitehall challenges Jamie Redknapp to 'build his own World Cup team'.

British Comedy Guide first reported on the format in February, but Sky has now confirmed the three hour-long episodes.

Talking about the format, the network explains: "The World Cup 2022 kicks off this November in Qatar and Jack Whitehall has challenged best mate Jamie Redknapp to a World Cup challenge of his own. Instead of collecting stickers as so many do, he has to build his own World Cup team by collecting real-life meetings with actual World Cup stars.

"Panicking about failing and desperate not to lose to Jack, Jamie drags his father Harry into the caper hoping that his contacts can open some doors. Together, Jamie and Harry embark on a road trip across the UK & Europe to do whatever it takes to meet as many World Cup legends as possible... but will Jack be impressed by their final 11?"

Jamie Redknapp says: "I still remember my first World Cup sticker album - Spain 1982. I got close, but never managed to find Peru's Hugo Gastulo and I'll never forgive him for it. I hope I do better with this one."

Harry Redknapp comments: "I can't wait to work with Jamie again and start this challenge. It's going to be great fun collecting my team of World Cup legends and hopefully I'll be able to catch up with a few old friends along the way!"

Jack Whitehall - who became friends with Jamie via A League Of Their Own (pictured) - acts as executive producer on the project. He says: "I have always been, like many, a devoted fan to the World Cup and I am beyond excited to be putting one of my best mates and his dad to the test in this exciting new World Cup challenge. More importantly, I can't wait for Sky viewers to watch Jamie Redknapp fail."

Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Entertainment, who has also announced Hold The Front Page, the return of Fantasy Football League and more Never Mind The Buzzcocks, comments: "There's something for everyone this year on Sky Max; from football, to music, to local news, to Daisy May Cooper's laugh. We're excited to showcase some of the best of British talent from the small screen in a host of entertainment shows that will provide us all with some much-needed light relief."
