Sky renews James Corden quiz

A League Of Their Own to return

Sky has commissioned a second series of James Corden’s sports quiz A League Of Their Own.

Another ten episodes, plus two hour-long specials, have been ordered for Sky 1 in HD this autumn.

Stand-up John Bishop will return as a regular panelist, despite landing his own BBC One prime-time series, while former England footballer and Sky Sports presenter Georgie Thompson are also returning.

The show will also air in a later, post-watershed timeslot, which Sky says will allow Corden and the teams ‘the freedom for even more mischief and mayhem’.

Corden – who was this weekend named half of the best double-act ever – said: ‘I’m really excited to be back in the saddle for another series of A League of Their Own. I’ve got plenty more random sports facts up my sleeves, and am looking forward to putting the teams through their paces again.’

Duncan Gray, Sky’s head of entertainment, added: ‘From the moment it aired, A League of Their Own was an instant hit with our viewers.’
