Flintoff on TV

I must admit I missed the first episode of the new Sky TV show A League of Their Own. This was a bit remiss of me what with Freddie Flintoff being one of the team captains on the quiz show and me running a blog called Flintoff’s Ashes.

Still, the very nice publicists for the show forgave me for my sins and sent me through some information about the rest of the series and I’ll be glued in front of my TV tomorrow to watch the next episode.

Sky have also produced a nice set of microsites with interviews, biographies and video content so you can catch up on what you’ve missed. There’s one for the main series and there’s also one for Freddie’s Team including an interview with the great man himself.

James Corden - A League of Their Own

SKY 1′s A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN starring Freddie Flintoff

A League of Their Own is a brand new comedy panel show starring James Corden with team captains Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff plus regular guests Georgie Thompson and John Bishop.

The show 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 weddings and can you arrange David James’ haircuts in chronological order? Or what does Rio Ferdinand think are the three worst things about being a Premiership footballer.

Something’s occurring this week as Gavin and Stacey star Ruth Jones joins her mate James Corden for sports-related banter. Alastair Campbell also joins the show regulars on the panel.

Tune in Thursdays at 9pm on Sky1 & Sky1 HD.

Guests confirmed to appear in the rest of the series include Amir Khan, Jimmy Carr, Claudia Winkleman, Matt Le Tissier, Dara O’Briain and Steve Harmison.

In a game of two halves, A League Of Their Own is all about banter and gags as this exciting new format embraces Sky’s proud sporting pedigree to create a back-of-the-net winner.
