Jack Whitehall, Romesh Ranganathan and David Walliams will be among the guest presenters on the next series of A League Of Their Own.

Regular host James Corden will be in the chair for just two of the episodes of the upcoming 14th series of the Sky One sports panel show because of his commitments in the US.

Others taking the hotseat will be  Clare Balding, Amanda Holden and sprinter Dina Asher Smith.

Ranganthan will also be on the panel for the shows he is not hosting, sitting alongside Jamie Redknapp as they face Freddie Flintoff’s rival team.

Sky’s director of programming Zai Bennett said: ‘We’re delighted that James is hosting two of the shows this series but appreciate he has other work commitments this year. Therefore, we’ve got a brilliant line-up of guests to keep his seat warm and we have no doubt that our new guest hosts will ensure that the laughs continue"
