SHOW 101: A League of Their Own

NOW SHOWING: A League of Their Own airs every Thursday at 9pm on Sky1 and Sky1 HD, from March 11.

WHY YOU MIGHT LOVE IT: If you're not that clued up on your sports knowledge you'll still be able to enjoy the show: Its focus is more on comedy than athletics. Girlfriends, you should have no problem watching this with your partners.

WHY YOU MIGHT HATE IT: As mentioned above the show's not as sports-centric as A Question of Sport and as such the opportunities to feel smug about your expertise on the subject is slim.

THE PREMISE: Gavin and Stacey comedian James Corden presents this sporting quiz show, which welcomes a mixture of sport stars and celebrity sport fans to compete in unusual general knowledge rounds that ask: which athlete has the most tattoos, and which had the most expensive wedding.

Across three rounds the two teams, captained by former footballer Jamie Redknapp and England cricketer Freddie Flintoff, have to: rearrange sports stars' depending on their personal achievements, correctly guess the subject of an athlete's quote, and answer as many questions as they can while a member of their team does chin-ups with a weight hanging from their neck.

The first episode welcomes boxer David Haye, actor Neil Morissey, comedian John Bishop and Sky Sports presenter Georgie Thompson to the teams. Others lined up include comedian Stephen Mangan, boxer Amir Khan, footballing legend Matt Le Tissier and Olympic diver Tom Daley. Strangely politician Alastair Cameron is on the list too.
