Peter Crouch, Maya Jama and Alex Horne are to co-host new show 'Crouchy’s Year Late Euros: Live'.
The former England striker will front the programme, which will run for 10 episodes on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer during this year's Euro 2020 football tournament, which will take place this summer after being postponed last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Each episode will see Peter, Maya and Alex present their unique take on the Euros action on the show, which will feature match reviews, predictions, celebrity guests, and live music courtesy of house band Alex Horne and The Horne Section.
Peter said: "This tournament has been a long time coming but it’s finally here! Maya, Alex and myself can’t wait for the games to start and for the nation to go Euros crazy.
"We will be dissecting the highs and lows of the action, plus having a chat to loads of top guests. Whatever the outcome, we will be having a good laugh along the way with a surprise or two for sure! Honestly, I can’t wait."
Maya added: "I’m super excited to be a part of this show, I have always been a football fan so I am thrilled to be in amongst the action for the Euros this year.
"Expect lots of laughs, celebrity guests and of course the latest on the biggest games this summer!"
Alex is delighted about providing the "musical backbone" to the show.
He said: "The Horne Section and I are thrilled to be the musical backbone of this genuinely unique and unpredictable live animal.
"Peter Crouch has been my hero for 15 years, Maya Jama is a superstar and I am a mild-mannered bandleader with a motley troupe of absurdly talented musicians at my disposal – if those aren't the ingredients for a delicious post-football entertainment dish then we're all doomed."
'Crouchy’s Year Late Euros: Live' will kick off on BBC One on Friday 11 June following the opening game of the tournament, Turkey v Italy.
