Question of Sport confirm new hosts with rugby star as team captain

Top Gear presenter Paddy McGuinness is to replace Sue Barker as host of BBC game show A Question of Sport.

The programme will also get two new team captains for its 51st series.

Hockey player Sam Quek and rugby star Ugo Monye will take over from Matt Dawson and Phil Tufnell.

Monye’s former Harlequins teammate Joe Marler was also reportedly in the running.

The latest iteration of the show will include some of its classic rounds, as well as add some new elements to the format, with the new team filming during the summer.

McGuinness, who also hosts Top Gear alongside Chris Harris and Freddie Flintoff, said: “I love the fiercely competitive nature of sports stars coupled with having a laugh.

“That’s why A Question of Sport has always been one of my favourite shows and having been weaned on it from an early age, this is an honour and opportunity I’m certainly not taking lightly.

“I grew up with both Davids hosting but it’s Sue who made this show her own. She will always be A Question Of Sport icon, but I’ll try my best to stamp my own mark on it.”
