Puppet-based comedy centred around the FIFA World Cup. After a hugely successful season in Europe, football manager Jose Mourinho (aka 'The Special One') comes to BBC Three for World Cup 2010 with his interactive phone-in chat show.

Joining him from S1TV HQ in Cape Town is Wayne Rooney, Fabio Capello and Sven Goran Eriksson. Also making appearances are David 'why-am-I-here' Beckham, a Spanish correspondent with an unusual connection to Liverpool and a host of other names from the world of international football.

Subsequent episodes have seen The Special 1 back on TV and "even more amazing, even more fantastic and even more incredible than ever before." He is joined in studio by the boy Wayne and Sven to look at the main headlines from the Premier League and general world news.
