Football's most dynamic on-air duo, Ian Wright and Mark Bright, return to BBC Radio Five Live this weekend (Saturday 3 April) for a brand new series.

The show is a fast-moving combination of humour and opinion that will make for the perfect build-up to all the weekend's sporting action.

Each week, Ian and Mark will be joined by top names from the world of sport and entertainment as they look forward to the day's sporting events and discuss current football issues, all totally live.

Wright and Bright's first show will be a two-hour FA Cup semi-final special from Villa Park. They will be joined live from 9.00am by a wealth of soccer stars including Dennis Wise and Edu, leading into an extended Sport on Five at 11.00am.

The show will return to its usual time of 11.00am for the rest of the series.

There will be competitions, quizzes, interviews and the chance for fans around the country to call in and 'Ask the Ref' in a new feature.

Bob Shennan, Controller, BBC Radio Five Live, said: "I am really excited to have Wright and Bright back on Five Live.

"They make a great team and their vibrant yet relaxed approach makes them a perfect on the station."

Ian Wright said: "In a week where my eldest got picked for the England squad, the show will seem like a doddle!

"Seriously, I can't wait to be live on the radio again, you never know what will happen next."

Mark Bright added: "I love working with Wrighty, but what I enjoy most is talking to the listeners and getting them involved in our banter."
