A League of Their Own

A League of Their Own

Series 8 - Episode 2



“Go easy on me,” England and Spurs midfielder Andros Townsend whispers to James Corden before the show starts. Has he seen the show? Whether multimillionaire footballer or star stand-up, no one gets an easy ride. Which is why, by the end of the episode, Townsend finds himself dressed as a giant human spacehopper trying to bounce away from a plunge pool. And laughing his head off.

It then dawns on you how rare it is to see footballers actually enjoying themselves. The riotous challenges help, but credit should go to Corden, Jack Whitehall and the rest for finding the naughty kid in even the stiffest of athletes.


James Corden hosts the sports-based comedy quiz, joined by team captains Jamie Redknapp and Freddie Flintoff alongside regular panellist Jack Whitehall, with Crystal Palace winger Andros Townsend, presenter Laura Whitmore and comedian Micky Flanagan. The challenges this week include a game of street soccer and a netball match at Wembley Arena, culminating in a back-to-school sports day between the reds and the blues.
