After running, rowing and cycling his way from Paris to London in aid of Sport Relief, it’s back to the day job for John Bishop tonight as he takes a guest turn on the opening episode of Sky’s popular panel show. Alongside master of ceremonies James Corden, he’s an ever-present source of the type of free-flowing sporting banter that‘s made the show one of the broadcaster’s top performers.

The addition of Jack Whitehall, who replaces F1-bound Georgie Thompson as a regular panellist, is another shot in the arm for a series that’s fast becoming essential viewing for sports fans and phobics alike.
