They think it's all overhauled

Lee Mack to host sports quiz

Lee Mack is to host the next series of They Think It’s All Over

The star of The Sketch Show will replace Nick Hancock, who is being dropped after a decade in the chair.

BBC executives are said to have thought the comedy sports quiz had become ‘too laddish’ and ordered a revamp.

Regulars Jonathan Ross and Ian Wright are expected to remain in the line-up, but Rory McGrath and Phil Tuffnell are ‘still in talks,’ according to reports today.

The shake-up for the new series, which starts in the autumn, is also thought to include new games and features.

But the official line is that nothing has yet been confirmed.
