It has been revealed today that Series 18 of A League Of Their Own, coming to Sky Max in October, will feature Mo Gilligan as a regular panellist.

Sky confirmed: "Joining ALOTO veteran Jamie Redknapp on the red team will be comedian, presenter and triple BAFTA-winner, Mo Gilligan - a familiar face from past series and one of the most celebrated TV stars right now.

"Opposite the red team is ALOTO's other recently announced new face: Lioness legend and blue team captain Jill Scott, along with former Man City and England right-back, Micah Richards. Returning to take on the managing role of host is comedian and presenter, Romesh Ranganathan.

"The brand new series, available on Sky Max and streaming service NOW, is set to be another corker, with star guests from the worlds of sport, comedy and television joining the teams each week, including Stuart Broad, Mary Earps, Christian Horner, Daniel Sturridge, Tom Davis, Katherine Ryan, Rob Beckett, Jimmy Carr, Maisie Adam, Guz Khan, Alex Brooker, Big Zuu, and more.

"Madcap challenges for the ALOTO family to face include a penalty challenge in front of a packed-out Old Trafford crowd, a Peloton challenge to become the best instructor and a Bazball inspired ALOTO cricket challenge."

Gilligan says: "I love this show. I always have. It's good people and good vibes. When Sky asked if I'd consider joining the A League Of Their Own team, there was no question in my mind. It was an immediate yes. I'm here for it all!"

Sky's Phil Edgar Jones comments: "A League Of Their Own is a brilliantly entertaining show and a big part of its special, unique formula is our star panellists, and the banter they share with our guests every week. As such, we are absolutely thrilled to have Mo Gilligan formally come on board. We can't wait to see him get his feet under the table and his head in the game."
