Entertainment series Crouchy’s Year Late Euros has been confirmed for BBC One.
Former England striker turned podcaster Peter Crouch will be joined by Maya Jama and Alex Horne and The Horne section to discuss the postponed Euro 2020 tournament which will now kick off in June 2021.
Each of the ten episodes will be filmed live and the trio will follow England, Scotland and Wales as they make their way through the tournament, each giving their own unique take on the action.
The series will include post-match reviews and predictions, top celebrity guests and live music.
Crouch will also catch up with the footballing superstars from the UK’s qualifying home nations.
“This tournament has been a long time coming but it’s finally here! Maya, Alex and myself can’t wait for the games to start and for the nation to go Euros crazy,” commented Peter Crouch.
He added: “We will be dissecting the highs and lows of the action, plus having a chat to loads of top guests. Whatever the outcome, we will be having a good laugh along the way with a surprise or two for sure! Honestly, I can’t wait.”
Maya Jama commented: “I’m super excited to be a part of this show, I have always been a football fan so I am thrilled to be in amongst the action for the Euros this year. Expect lots of laughs, celebrity guests and of course the latest on the biggest games this summer!”
Alex Horne said: “The Horne Section and I are thrilled to be the musical backbone of this genuinely unique and unpredictable live animal.
“Peter Crouch has been my hero for fifteen years, Maya Jama is a superstar and I am a mild-mannered bandleader with a motley troupe of absurdly talented musicians at my disposal - if those aren't the ingredients for a delicious post-football entertainment dish then we're all doomed.”
The competition celebrates its 60th birthday this year and will take place across Europe from Friday 11 June, with the final taking place at Wembley Stadium on Sunday 11 July.
Crouchy’s Year Late Euros will air on BBC One on Friday 11 June.
