‘A League of Their Own’ Signs Mo Gilligan For Season 18, Premiering October On Sky Max

Sky’s BAFTA-winning sports comedy show A League of Their Own returns this October for Season 18 Sky Max and streaming service NOW, and they have signed triple BAFTA-winner, Mo Gilligan as a new series regular.

Comedian/presenter Gilligan will join ALOTO veteran Jamie Redknapp on the red team, whilst another recently announced new face, Lioness legend Jill Scott, takes over as blue team captain, alongside former Man City and England right-back, Micah Richards. Returning to take on the managing role of host is comedian and presenter, Romesh Ranganathan.

“I love this show. I always have. It’s good people and good vibes,” said Gilligan on his huge new permanent transfer. “When Sky asked if I’d consider joining the A League of Their Own team, there was no question in my mind. It was an immediate yes. I’m here for it all!”

The brand-new season is set to be another corker, with star guests from the worlds of sport, comedy and television joining the teams each week, including Stuart Broad, Mary Earps, Christian Horner, Daniel Sturridge, Tom Davis, Katherine Ryan, Rob Beckett, Jimmy Carr, Maisie Adam, Guz Khan, Alex Brooker, Big Zuu, and more.

Madcap challenges for the ALOTO family to face include a penalty challenge in front of a packed-out Old Trafford crowd, a Peloton challenge to become the best instructor and a Bazball-inspired ALOTO cricket challenge.

Named “The Funniest Man in Britain” by The Times, stand-up sensation Mo Gilligan is one of the UK’s biggest comedy stars. He’s achieved phenomenal success with highlights of two sold-out national tours including London’s O2 Arena, three Stand Up Specials and numerous TV credits (The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, The Masked Singer, That’s My Jam).

“A League of their Own is a brilliantly entertaining show and a big part of its special, unique formula is our star panelists, and the banter they share with our guests every week,” adds Phil Edgar Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment. “As such, we are absolutely thrilled to have Mo Gilligan formally come on board. We can’t wait to see him get his feet under the table and his head in the game.”

‘A League of Their Own’ was commissioned by Zai Bennett, Managing Director of Content for Sky UK and Ireland and Phil Edgar-Jones, Director, Sky Arts and Entertainment. The Commissioning Editor for Sky UK is Barbara Lee and the Executive Producers for CPL, a Seven. One Studios company, are Murray Boland, Danielle Lux, Jack Shillaker and David Taylor.
