Mo Gilligan signs for A League of Their Own’s red team

A League of Their Own sees sports stars and comedians compete in a series of rounds designed to test their sporting knowledge. In teams of three, they have to answer hard-hitting questions such as: "which of these three sports people’s wives charges the most for perfume?" Or, "can you arrange David James’ haircuts in chronological order?"

In the final round, one of the teammates tries to sustain a physical task whilst the other two answer as many questions as they can, before their teammate admits defeat.
