One of Sky’s longest-standing entertainment programmes, the award-winning show returns with a bumper guest list. The star-studded line-up includes former heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, panel favourite Tony Bellew, footballers and England internationals John Terry, Ashley Cole and Jack Wilshere, singer Geri Horner, comedian and A League of Their Own regular Rob Beckett and Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah.

 

And that’s not all. Series 13 features even more of the hysterical moments we’ve come to expect from the show, including speed skating with world champion Elise Christie, hurling in Kilkenny in front of 30,000 spectators, ThunderCat racing and a swimming event between the panel, David Walliams and Helen Skelton, who were all coached by Olympic champion Adam Peaty.

 

Studio challenges this year ranged from ‘danger sit-ups’ with Tony Bellew to ‘back-to-back football’, with Josh Widdicombe showing off his skills.

Romesh Ranganathan said: “A League of Their Own has been a lot of fun, is something I’m contractually obliged to say despite the physical challenges, which I would describe as some of the toughest experiences I have ever been through. The guest list, however, has been phenomenal with David Walliams, Helen Skelton and Wladimir Klitschko, who was amazing. This series also saw the return of one of my favourite people in the world and ALOTO Hall of Famer Tony Bellew - who was as incredible as we all hoped he would be.”
