What’s going to happen, and who’s replacing Jack Whitehall?
Comedian Romesh Ranganathan is replacing Jack Whitehall as a panellist, and will be joined by host James Corden and fellow panellists Freddie Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp.
“I’d like to say I’m saddened by Jack leaving, but it has essentially meant that I can become part of the show so I’m actually pretty delighted,” Ranganathan said of the announcement. “I’m looking forward to joining James, Freddie and Jamie and finally adding some eye candy to the show.”
