BBC One has revealed that Paddy McGuinness is the new host of its staple quiz show, A Question of Sport.
Joining McGuinness are two new team captains in Olympic Gold medal-winning hockey player Sam Quek and England rugby star Ugo Monye.
McGuinness is no stranger to game shows, hosting I Can See Your Voice and Catchpoint, as well as presenting another BBC One flagship, Top Gear.
Quek, the first female captain in A Question of Sport’s fifty year history, won over 120 caps for the national hockey team and gold for Team GB in the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
Moye is a former rugby union player who starred for club and country from 2002 until he retired in 2015. He won major domestic and European competitions for Harlequins.
McGuinness said: “I love the fiercely competitive nature of sports stars coupled with having a laugh. That’s why A Question of Sport has always been one of my favourite shows and having been weaned on it from an early age, this is an honour and opportunity I’m certainly not taking lightly.
“I grew up with both Davids hosting but it’s Sue who made this show her own. She will always be A Question of Sport icon, but I’ll try my best to stamp my own mark on it.”
The new series will retain A Question of Sport’s most popular rounds while adding new elements yet to be announced.
The new series of A Question of Sport will begin filming during the summer of 2021 to air later in the year on BBC One.
