Sky One has set the roster of guests for the thirteenth season of A League Of Their Own, which premieres on Thursday August 30th at 9pm.
The premiere episode will feature Tony Bellew, Lizzy Yarnold and Alan Carr; while guests set to appear throughout season thirteen include Wladimir Klitschko, Tony Bellew, John Terry, David Walliams, Helen Skelton. Ashley Cole, Jack Wilshere, Geri Horner, Rob Beckett and Mo Farah. They will appear alongside new regular Romesh Ranganathan, who is replacing Jack Whitehall.
“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”, Romesh said. “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.”
Produced by CPL Productions, A League Of Their Own has been renewed by Sky through season fourteen. It is hosted by James Corden and features regulars Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff. Jack Whitehall exited ahead of the new season due to scheduling conflicts. Season thirteen will include 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.
“Every year we aim to get the highest calibre of guests for the series and this year has been no different. The team work so hard to continue to push the boundaries and ensure sporting idols see our show as the go-to for sports entertainment”, said Barbara Lee, Commissioning Editor for Sky Arts and Entertainment. “Where else do you see James Corden and Wladimir Klitschko going toe-to-toe or Alan Carr take on Tony Bellew in a speed-skating challenge?”
